home->explain->props->ethic->text2 We oppose the exploitation, surveillance, censorship and appropriation of data in favour of transparency (probity), clear presentation of services’ terms of use and refusing discrimination.
home->explain->props->ethic->text3 Framasoft undertakes not to exploit its users’ data, and to promote a fair and open Web.
home->explain->props->decent->title Decentralization
home->explain->props->decent->text1 Internet intelligence must remain with each individual player on the network, in a spirit of sharing among peers, to avoid creating a Minitel (a pre-Internet videotext terminal and service) version 2.0.
home->explain->props->decent->text2 To ensure equality for all, whether citizens or businesses, not only is it essential to avoid monopolies, but large organizations must be prevented from grabbing personal or public data.
home->explain->props->decent->text3 Using tutorials to explain how to increase the use of free solutions that will allow a fairer Internet, we help to distribute codes and diversify usage.
home->explain->props->decent->text4 Framasoft is thus committed to facilitating self-hosting and interoperability, so that its users don’t get “locked in”.
home->explain->props->solid->title Solidarity
home->explain->props->solid->text1 Through the services we deploy, we promote an economic model based on sharing costs and resources, and providing widespread access.
home->explain->props->solid->text2 This model also has an educational aspect because we believe that by documenting ways to setup services, many users will in turn be able to share these resources.
home->explain->props->solid->text3 We think that, by not infantilizing users and by sharing responsibility for the use of services, it will be possible to regulate abuse.
home->explain->props->solid->text4 Framasoft is thus committed to promoting respect and autonomy for its users (as long as this is reciprocated).
home->explain->props->charte->title Services and Charter

home->explain->concrete->title In practice
home->explain->concrete->text1 The “de-google-ify Internet” project - which does not exclusively concern Google - consists in <strong> offering as many alternative services as possible to those we consider a threat to our digital lives</strong>.
home->explain->concrete->text2 Google Docs, Skype, Dropbox, Facebook, Twitter, Google Agenda, Youtube, Doodle, Yahoo! Groups, and many others, are extremely convenient services but <strong>they have become far too large and have made us dependent on them</strong>. Framasoft wishes to resist this trend and is putting forward a roadmap for setting up alternative services over several years.
home->explain->concrete->text3 These services are free, gratis, open to all (insofar as our technical and financial capabilities allow us), as <strong> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commons" title="digital commons">digital commons</a> </strong>. With the goal of decentralising the Internet and promoting self-hosting, we will do our best to ensure that everyone can install their own services (for themselves, for their organisation, or their company).
home->explain->concrete->text4 Of course, We are not aiming <em>to compete with</em> these services, We merely wish to offer a space that is neutral, non-commercial, and in no way aggressive towards its users.

alt->text1 @:meta.F aims to <a href="@:link.dio"> offer around thirty free alternative services</a> to provide a substitute for those services which, once they get hold of us, proceed to feed upon our data.<br /> But there are many other players working to de-google-ify Internet and many other such services.
alt->text2 You will find <a href="#tips" rel="nofollow">below</a>, a list summarizing and supplementing the alternatives presented on the map. It is inspired by <a href="https://prism-break.org/en/">Prism-Break</a> which promotes other software in more specialized areas.

home->explain->danger->btn Threats
home->explain->danger->centralisum->desc Major actors of the Internet have become real giants: Facebook has acquired WhatsApp and Instagram, Google owns Youtube and Waze, Microsoft distributes Skype, etc.<br /> This concentration of actors creates multiple issues: what if Facebook were suddenly shut down? And how could we browse the Web if Google went down? <strong>We rely more and more on services provided by a small group of suppliers.</strong> For example, Apple (iPhone), Google (Android) and Microsoft (Windows Phone) dominate almost the entire mobile OS industry.<br /> Furthermore, the size of these actors impedes innovation: it’s hard to launch a startup that can match up to Apple or Google (the first and second worldwide market capitalisations, respectively).<br /> Finally, The lack of diversity of the giants means they can track many people who are unaware that there may be alternatives, and it can influence the kind of data you receive (a Google search will produce different results for the term “nuclear power” depending on whether Google considers you to be an environmentalist or pro-nuclear power).

home->explain->danger->centralisum->title Centralization
home->explain->danger->espionum->desc These services track us everywhere, while claiming to give us a better “user experience”. But our behaviour is under constant surveillance. This information can be used to display targeted adverts, but the revelations of the Snowden case have also shown that Internet giants have been forced to communicate this data (sometimes extremely private: emails from Gmail, photos shared on Facebook, Skype conversations, smartphone locations, etc.) to government services. <strong>Under the pretense of fighting terrorism</strong>, states are able to gather much more intelligence than a "Big Brother" would ever have dreamed of.
home->explain->danger->espionum->ref https://my.framasoft.org/u/degooglisons/?searchtags=espionnage
home->explain->danger->espionum->title Surveillance
home->explain->danger->fermetum->desc Web services used on your computer, smartphone, tablets (and other devices)are usually hosted on the “cloud”: servers spread across the planet, that host not only your data (emails, pictures, files, etc.), but also the application code.<br /> For your data, this raises the issue of sustainability (what would become of your files if Dropbox were to close tomorrow?) and of your ability to switch easily between services (how would you recover your data from Facebook or Picasa and import it, with all the adjoining comments, into another service?). <br /> For applications, this means that <strong>you are completely at the mercy of your service provider</strong> when it comes to proliferation of advertisements, changes to the user interface, etc., and that you have hardly any control over the way an application works. It is a “black box” that can exhibit malicious behaviour (sending spam SMS without your knowledge, executing malicious code, and so on).<br /> In short, these companies trap us in gilded cages: gilded yes, but cages nonetheless!
home->explain->danger->fermetum->ref https://my.framasoft.org/u/degooglisons/?searchtags=fermeture
home->explain->danger->fermetum->title Termination
home->explain->danger->privatum->desc Our data is an extension of ourselves. It tells third-parties where we are, who we are with, our political and sexual orientations, sites we have visited, our favorite recipes, our favorite topics of interest, and so on.<br /> While a single data point is not always sensitive, the loss of large amounts of aggregated data can be dangerous (for example if you browse topics about cancer before subscribing to a life insurance).<br /> In a world where everything has been digitized (ebooks, TV, phones, music, social networks, etc.), <strong>your private life is an essential part of your individuality</strong>. It would only take a malicious hacker with access to your smartphone a few minutes to cause you serious harm taking control of your identity on Facebook, consulting your professional or medical information, making purchases without your authorisation, etc.).
home->explain->danger->privatum->ref https://my.framasoft.org/u/degooglisons/?searchtags=vie-privee
home->explain->danger->privatum->title Privacy
home->explain->danger->text The increasingly centralized online services provided by sprawling giants like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, or Microsoft (GAFAM) pose a threat to our digital lives.
