    Yea that’s something that’s been on my mind as well

    There are benefits from that openness and verifiability in public spaces (ex. Lemmy communities), since now it’s easier to determine if there’s vote manipulation or astroturfing. But I think the fediverse needs a lot of work around privacy, and also education about what is/isn’t private on these platforms.

    There should also be more of a focus on setting up a legal requirement on what can be done with the information, but I’m not sure if that’s a thing just yet. We developed GPLv3 to make sure FOSS products can’t be incorporated for profit, but I’m not sure how it would work for data.

    ex. It should be easy to save, record, and share posts on the fediverse, such as with embeds/screenshots/news stories

    But also we want to prevent abuse, misuse, and AI training
