<nettime> Regulate Social Media


Hello
Although small scale social media initiatives are important and useful their existence and development does not negate the necessity for dealing economically and politically with Facebook, Google et al...

Here is one example - https://www.regulatesocialmedia.org/ I am sure others are out there and more will begin appearing; it is critical to make these discussions widespread and to make the social media behemoths accountable - dramatically so. The insidiousness nature of the faux public sphere propagated by these companies needs to enter the public discourse in a thorough and comprehensible way.

Cheers
Allan
