#Scuttlebutt is a distributed social network. There are no servers at all, just you and the people you know.

Anything shared with you on Scuttlebutt is sent to your computer or phone. Anything you share with another is sent to theirs.

It's still in its early days and tricky to use, but there's a good attempt to get it into the mainstream at:

manyver.se

It's available for Android (through Play and @fdroidorg ) and on the way for iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux.

Google+ is shutting down because of a severe security breach. Take this as a reminder to leave Google & Facebook. We're happy that we've already found a new home here @Mastodon 😍

#PrivacyBadger is a useful add-on from the #EFF for web browsers that helps protect users from being tracked.

You can get it from the official site:

eff.org/privacybadger

It is really easy to use, it automatically learns as it goes along, and you can use it simultaneously with different kinds of protective add-ons like uBlock Origin.

If you have a non-techie friend or relative who is concerned about privacy, you might want to install Privacy Badger on their browser.
