Mozilla Foundation: Tech giants like Amazon and Facebook should be regulated, disrupted, or broken up

Quote:The Mozilla Foundation today released its inaugural Internet Health Report, which calls for the regulation of tech giants like Google, Amazon, and Facebook. The report debuts the same day as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before a gathering of two U.S. Senate committees, his first appearance before Congress.

Though tech giants in the U.S. and companies like Alibaba and Tencent in China have “helped billions realize the benefits of the internet,” the report calls for regulation of these players to mitagate monopolistic business practices that undermine “privacy, openness, and competition on the web.”

“They box out competitors, restricting innovation in the process,” the report reads. “As their capacity to make sense of massive amounts of data grows through advances in artificial intelligence and quantum computing, their powers are likely to advance into adjacent businesses through vertical integrations into hardware, software, infrastructure, automobiles, media, insurance, and more — unless we find a way to disrupt them or break them up.”

Governments should enforce anti-competitive behavior laws and rethink outdated antitrust models when implementing regulation of tech giants, the report states.

100% agree, it's time for action.

I've never had any use for social networks, last thing I need is to have some old GF trying to get a hold of me, or hook up with people I went to school with that I hated.

I get it, I'm going to get my parents and granny off of there so I can get off of there. There's only so many cat videos I can handle.

Why bother? They will still be run by the same few people. Just let them grow and become all powerful. At least then we won't have to pretend they aren't running things.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

They take themselves, their political views and the establishment left far too seriously.
Goolag and fakebook stifle speech and control the narrative just like the NAZI's and Soviet Union...
and just like the NAZI's... they are just doing their job, and never for one second do they stop and give it a second thought.
They work in an echo chamber and every day is just a daily affirmation for them all working in lockstep toward the ultimate goal of the death of common sense, right is wrong, black is white.

The Nazis and Commies were puppets too. It's always the same people behind the curtain puling the levers and strings. Everything else is a distraction.

Yuppers.
Their descendants are still pulling the strings.
Nothing EVER changes... with Trump being the only possible exception but they will tear him down if it's the last thing they do.

I've told my mom I'm leaving FB, she's says how will I talk to you now that you moved up North. I said phone, email FFS vic.gif It's crippled her mind in some strange way. I think it does that to some.

How can be be sure our phones and emails are safe too, after all it's all social media and open to hacking?

Never joined FB, and have never been there searching for anything or anyone. They were pushing it all over the world when it first came out, it's a deep state surveillance tool, nothing before or after was promoted in this way.

Same here, I have a 4g cheap phone, never installed a single app or tied Google or my email to it.
