Building Your Own Privacy-Friendly Analytics Using Tinybird

January 01, 2023

If you’re tired of relying on analytics platforms like Google Analytics that sell your data for their own financial gain, then Tinybird might be the solution you’ve been looking for.

With Tinybird, you can build your own privacy-friendly analytics and take control of your data.

You can use it to provide analytics for the end users of your SaaS app, just like Dub.sh has done.

I was able to quickly set up Tinybird for my blog, nesin.io, in just 5 minutes.
