Mark Zuckerberg has recently explained that one of his 2018 goals was to make “sure that time spent on Facebook is time well spent”. Well, Sean Parker, Facebook’s former President, begs to differ. In a recent video, he explained that thought process behind building the social media giant was: “How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?”

All of this really made us think of how different we want Cozy to be. Cozy is open source, and it’s about to serve humans above all, not advertisers (we don’t have advertisers). Of course we want to make a product that a delight to use, but above all, it has to be about serving its users, while protecting their personal data.
