Is WordPress.com really an alternative?


#1

I ran a website workshop for beginners. I ended up recommending WordPress.com as the easiest and most ethical way of getting a website online, as an alternative to Tumblr (Oath) or Blogger (Google).

A big bonus is that the users data is easy to export (“You own your data — take it anywhere!”)

But I have my doubts as to how safe they are in terms of tracking – WordPress do seem quite cosy with Google et al. Can anyone shed any light on their business practises?
