@laura Still don't get the point... Un-bubbled recommendations? And you're getting tracked anyway.

@tagomago @laura exactly. If they use the app, FB has their MAC address, IMEI, phone number, Wifi list, FB and other accounts etc. Ask they do is mess with the recommendation system.

@laura @Gargron this reminds me of a similar idea, a tool that would submit hundreds of random google searches

And a SMBC I can’t find

@laura "‘She shouldn't have to have these psyop [psychological operations] networks with multiple people…’"

This sentence is confusing to me.

Dissembling is a basic part of life; the internet did nothing to change that; and the skill is one teens need to learn early because they'll be taken advantage of (or worse) otherwise?

@laura I'm happy to see that teenagers are getting smarter about using dodgy social networks. If Facebook is so creepy why not using their algorithms against itself. Halellujah !
