The Big Tech Three
Today I really started thinking about just how much power is in the hands now of just three tech giants, Twitter, Facebook and Goggle and the various offshoots they own, Instagram, YouTube etc...
No one under 50 watches tv or reads a newspaper to get their news anymore. That makes these tech giants often the go to source for attaining people's daily dose of news and information on the latest happenings in the world.
All that power in the hands of so few people opens up a whole Pandoras Box of bad possibilities.
Basically they get to control what information gets out to the general public and more important what information gets buried to never see the light of day.
They also get to decide who can even participate in the discussions by limiting who can use their sites.
I'm an anti-monopoly type of person and think anytime just two or three giant companies control a whole industry and are able to use their power to bully smaller companies around it isn't a good thing for the general public.
That's my thought on the subject from my deep mind shaft.
