#introduction
Hi, I am #newhere. I've been on Mastodon a bit, but this is new to me. I do have a few questions:

1) Any good Android apps for this platform?

2) Is there any way to filter languages? I don't mind seeing other languages, it's just faster to scroll through if I can hide things I can't read because I'm an ignorant American 😂

Android app: as far as I know, DiCa (or so) did get a lot of attention in the past months as an app for Friendica.

Language filter: yes, there is a language filter. Have a look under Settings -> Addon -> Language Filter

Look in the Google Play store for 'diaspora'.



 
I must admit, I never really understood why I should bother about protecting my personal data, why I should be worried about google knowing I recently looked for Spider-Man t-shirts, or where I live and work. So i looked up a few articles, and while I'm getting a better grasp, it still sounds a lot like the problem isn't that companies have my data, or that it is a danger for me, but that they are collecting and sharing it in an un-ethical way.
Since we're on the fediverse/federation I guess there are a lot of people who are more knowledgeable than me on the topic, I'd like to hear what you think about the topic?
