.@SwitchingSocial@twitter.com covers how #GoogleDrive lets Google read & copy your files, pass them around, make derivative works, even publish them! 😟 Check the terms you agreed to...
Time for #selfhosting #nextcloud https://switching.social/ethical-alternatives-to-dropbox-google-drive-and-google-docs/ #Privacy #DeleteGoogle
@nextcloud one of the reasons I stopped using Google Apps altogether.
I do, however, find it hilarious that they want to hold the rights to "publibly perform" a YoY earnings report. I hope they cast some good broadway actors!
Thank you time someone asks me why I'm not using google drive to write collaboratively anymore, I'm pointing them at this.
@nextcloud @RussSharek fun fact: The german GoogleDrive TOS explicitly clarifies that this is limited to just the case where you explicitly publish things using Google Drive. (see https://www.giga.de/downloads/google-drive/news/google-drive-erschreckende-nutzungsbedingungen-im-gegenteil/)
Using your own filehosting can still be quite a wise move, depending on your needs and threat model. Just please don't spread FUD.
