This article is about the pitfalls of WhatsApp, but it could be about many different platforms and how they mistreat users:

@fsf thank you very much for sharing this valuable post, FSF. Reshared of course.


> The bait-and-switch operation incurred backlash significant enough for a noticeable minority of users to actually migrate

Haha, yesss... A big mass of at least 15 people now switched from WhatsApp to a more or less similarly wrong system that is just smaller. And they will stay there for at least two weeks now before going back.

We should celebrate much more that big win that we have achieved here.

@fsf Thanks for the shout-out! Feedback welcome from everyone reading this.

@fsf Excellent case studies on Mozilla & Signal too!
