Our last activities, from the various project under the tracking.exposed umbrella
We are a no-profit, free software project aimed to analyze evidence of algorithm personalization by enabling social media user in scraping their personalized feeds, and allow comparison among said evidence by offering privacy-preserving API, so people might finally figure out how aggressive and manipulative is the modern Internet landscape.
Dear friend! If you did something for tracking.exposed: cool! Sadly, your effort is not over yet, until your action gets adequately reported in our production list. The file is of ‘analysis-and-publication’! our list of project’s success and yours should be there too. We should save each advocacy effort. Articles published that talk about us, and of course our productions. You’ve to edit (or propose a pull request) to this file on github, which become like a list of events in the end.
We operate in small, mono focus, projects*. “Facebook” or “Pornhub” are two mono-focus projects for us. “European Election algorithm analysis” is another one. All the volunteers contribute freely expecting acknowledgment for their effort and offering quality time. Generally, we team up with people and organization who understand and share the manifesto. Being proactive in developing an idea is extra appreciated, as per Autumn 2019, we run understaffed and underfunded. We don’t have solutions for these issues yet.
Version 1.0.0, 16 July 2018 - updates in September 2019 on the final sections. Our main objective is to put a spotlight on users’ tracking, profiling, on the data market and on the influence of algorithms. As long as these phenomena are shielded from view or understood only by experts, they cannot be tackled with the political determination that problems of such magnitude deserve. That is why we strive to explain the issue, test and promote new solutions, developed to benefit the community.
