FaceBook Co-Founder: It's Time to Break Up FaceBook. American Culture Cannot Have a Monopolistic Censor.

Yup.

Chris Hughes, the Harvard roommate of and co-founder of Facebook with Mark Zuckerberg, writes in a piece for the New York Times that "it is time to break up Facebook."

"America was built on the idea that power should not be concentrated in any one person, because we are all fallible," writes Hughes. "That's why the founders created a system of checks and balances." Hughes explains that because Zuckerberg has a 60 percent control of Facebook’s voting shares, "Mark alone can decide how to configure Facebook's algorithms to determine what people see in their News Feeds, what privacy settings they can use and even which messages get delivered."
...

Hughes sees Zuckerberg's "unilateral control over speech" as "the most problematic aspect of Facebook’s power."

"There is no precedent for his ability to monitor, organize and even censor the conversations of two billion people," he says. For this, Hughes is calling on the government to hold Zuckerberg accountable and believes current actions against Facebook, such as a $5 billion fine from the Federal Trade Commission aren’t enough to rein in Zuckerberg in. "We are a nation with a tradition of reining in monopolies, no matter how well intentioned the leaders of these companies may be. Mark's power is unprecedented and un-American."

He also calls for an agency to regulate social media, with an emphasis on holding them to account regarding privacy.

27 Yep.

Immediately, every social media company should be given a free choice to choose to be a publisher or a public utility. If needed, they can spin off companies in order to separate the powers.

If they choose to be a publisher, they will have to live under the body of law for publishers.

If they choose to be a public utility, they will have to live under the body of law for public utilities.

If they insist on remaining an unaccountable mixture of the two, they should be nationalized immediately.

We should not waste our time or resources trying to cook up a new body of law just for them.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." -- C.

It's been that way for some time. I think most of the tech types at startups dream of being a big company with lots of success in its own right.

But the VCs know that most of it is a pipe dream. They just want to buy in, run up a big valuation on future prospects, sell out and cash in before the jig is up.

Big tobacco did the same thing. It worked to create an insurmountable monopoly but also made it so government could kill the whole thing if they wished. Now the top tobacco companies are just begging for more regulation, the more the better. Again, it is has worked for one or two of them for some time, but it will work right up until it doesn't.
I say leave twitter and fakebook on your own. Some conservatives should be able to come up with an alternative. I know it seems impossible but I don't really understand why that is.

Facebook owns massive amounts of infrastructure. Whatsapp, Instagram, and Oculus VR are the most commonly known. But Facebook has also bought a ton of backend companies that provide ad and content services.

It's like Amazon and AWS. You might say fine I won't shop Amazon but the odds are very high that other services you are using are using AWS.

See also Alphabet and how it services more or less all web advertising.

I don't use Facebook and I bet I use stuff online constantly that uses Facebook infrastructure.

283 Fundamentals of a not-libertarian position I've come to. If the Constitution says government can't do a thing, and an entity possesses through craft or seizure the authority to do that thing, its position to do so is not only wrong but an abrogation of government.

That government is best which governs least, but a corollary is that nobody not the government gets to "govern" more either, and anything which de facto gives a company like Facebook a government-issued authority within law to, say, search and seize people not its customers, is obviously not something we should permit.

Real answer? Three-fold; for most of that time period, the Soviets as an external threat put a damper on their moonbattery, or at least kept it to a slow burn. And part of that slow burn was the dismantling of our education system.
Now our moonbats are exceptionally educationally challenged, and the only external threat they profess to care about is one they're shrilly linking to their domestic opponents.
Lastly, censorship aside, FB is a pretty damn big threat simply for the reach of their data collection and their near-total lack of ethics. We're talking about a company that was selling access to people's private photo uploads to third parties so you could search for, and view, private bikini pics by username, for fuck's sake.

294 The thing that struck me right away about social media is the stupidity of its exclusivity.

Why can't you be on Facebook, and have people from LinkedIn, MySpace or Twitter appear and comment?

It would be like at the very start of email they told you that, if you were on yahoo, you can only get email from other yahoo users.

That NEVER would have taken hold.

So how did social media take hold?

The "user" has no input into the TOS contract and has no way to modify it. That's pretty one-sided.

The user ought to have a right to refuse whichever part of the contract he or she chooses and still use the service.

They're compiling a file on you if you're a user or not. All they have to do is properly infer that you exist - then there is a long list of devices that can phone home about you.
Let's say you have never used FB in your entire life and do nothing but carry a smartphone that you don't even turn on, let alone install apps on.
Let's say your partner also has never used FB, but engages in regular smartphone usage. They installed one of hundreds of apps on their phone made by a company that has data sharing agreements with FB; not even some fly by night outfit, we're talking major stuff like MSM outlets and whatnot. That app nabs their address book, and the partner's data gets sent to FB.
Boom. There is a file on them now, if there was not before. Now you get established as their cohabitant based on your address book entry and correlating the geolocation of your phone - which is done even with the phone powered off. Now you get a file on you as well.
Now FB knows who you are, where you live, and where you go, and they're getting that data from multiple sources.

Yep. Iirc during the election one of Obama's buddies techniques was to make some user agreement where you agreed for any and all of your friends, too.

348 161 Look, Facebook can do what it wants because it's a private company.

Don't like it, Jesus and Conservative Principles sez to build your own platform.

Yeah, that's it: it's a private company and a monopoly, with a majority ownership and control by ONE guy.

NO harm in that --ask John J. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and the other Robber Barons.

Oh wait---the government broke them up because they had a distorting effect on the economy, and had built up all sorts of barriers to entry by competitors.

Just as Zuck is asking to be regulated ---so as to keep competitors out.

So, by gum, your "build your own platform" is straight out of the 19th century!!

Huzzah!!

349 Given its deep corruption, you gotta be asking yourself how many Congresscritters has Zuck already paid off so that he feels secure that nothing will happen to him or his censorious and privacy-invading enterprise.

IOW how many Nadlers and the like have sidled up to him and said, "Nice little monopoly you got here; I'd hate to see anything happen to it".

(and you can substitute a lot of GOP types for Nadler, and still be right)

350 Facebook has "pretended" to be an open platform, but by censoring some posts, they've in effect become an editorial board. I'm wondering if they can be pressured to go back to an open forum if there are libel lawsuits directly against facebook, based on the posts they ALLOW. Since they use editorial judgment, they cannot use the "public forum" defense.

351 Facebook spams my cell phone in texts warning me to sign back in to the Facebook I used to have back in 2014 when I then dropped them and cleared my membership.The only way to get them to stop spamming me every single day to sign in or they will cancel my membership is to sign in.To ask them to stop requires me to sign back in.I have to simply take their constant aggravating spam text.I hate Facebook.
