This is also interesting from the article.

"Facebook has not fully disclosed the manner in which it pre-processes photos on the iOS camera roll, meaning if a user has any Facebook app installed on their iPhone, then Facebook accesses and analyses the photos the user takes and/or stores on the iPhone, the complainant alleges."

Sounds like FB is in some way processing camera roll images to extract data (location, time, maybe even contents) even when sync is switched off

‘Facebook, Google face first GDPR complaints over ‘forced consent’’

“Schrems argues that the companies are using a strategy of “forced consent” to continue processing the individuals’ personal data — when in fact the law requires that users be given a free choice unless a consent is strictly necessary for provision of the service.”

They've got the #bisexual pride flag AND the #intersex flag! <3
RT @NZParliament@twitter.com Usually our flags #OnTheForecourt welcome international visitors, but today we're flying the #LGBTI flags for the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism & Transphobia (#IDAHOBIT) – the first time the intersex flag has been flown by a national parliament.

Just to be clear about what's happening in #korea right now:
#japan wants peace
#china wants peace
Both Koreas want it also
But #trump and US oligarchy want weapon sales. SK+JP massive clients. So Bolton+Trump an obstruction to peace.

Info that's useful for user and #mastoadmin alike:

If you're reporting a user on another instance, and you choose to forward your report to the admin of that instance, the report is anonymized: on the remote instance, it appears to come from the admin of the instance you're on.

This is for your protection, but it also makes including a report reason and offending toots important, because the remote admin doesn't know who you are and has no way to check with you about what's going on.

For the record: After reorg in 2018 Facebook has fewer Women in charge of key parts of the business than dudes called "Chris".

In 2018. Think about that. Pathetic.
