For poor people (ex lumenproletariat, but incl anyone struggling, which incls some middleclass ‘big spenders’) hard to give a hoot about privacy when like the bottom 2 rungs of maslow’s hierarchy of needs are lacking.
I personally bumped into digital privacy/the fediverse somewhat randomly when covid lockdowns were happening. Always sorta had an innate concept of privacy compared to some people though.
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
In this community everyone is welcome to post links and discuss topics related to privacy.

I think the recent allegations (whether true or not) that period tracking apps in USA (and other counties where abortion is illegal) might make users’ data available to goverments could make people reconsider.
