I feel like there has to be an Instagram like ActivityPub service and app. It’s essentially just a photo focused UI on top of something like Mastodon.

Does anyone know of anything popular?

Reading through AirBnB’s new privacy policy and found this gem:

“𝗗𝗼 𝗡𝗼𝘁 𝗧𝗿𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝗦𝗶𝗴𝗻𝗮𝗹𝘀. While you may disable the usage of cookies through your browser settings, the Airbnb Platform currently does not respond to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from your browser or mobile application due to lack of standardization regarding how that signal should be interpreted.”

It’s apparently too hard for them to understand what we mean we we say don’t track me...

When will privacy promoting options be easy for the every day consumer?
