Recently Facebook have taken over WhatsApp costing them an unbelievable and ridiculous 19 billion dollars. That kind of money could contribute massively towards sorting out some of the worlds problems, problems like poverty, oppression, starvation and supplying the world with water. Instead of this Facebook decide to spend it on eliminating competition, actions and greed like this is just one more example of why corporations like Facebook, Google and Amazon should pay a lot more tax than they do. In my opinion a corporation like Facebook should be taxed at least 80% on their ridiculously massive profit, this would prevent these greedy, bloodsucking, inbred parasites from having an absolute monopoly on the internet and simply taking over their competition.
Google have ruined YouTube and Google plus forces YouTube users/uploaders to have a useless/shit Google plus account. I do not like Facebook or Google and I would much rather not have to use these disgusting, greedy companies but unfortunately they have such of a huge monopoly on the internet that we have no choice. If I were to close my YouTube and Facebook accounts in protest of their lack of respect for our rights, freedom of speech and their disgusting greed, it would make it impossible for my videos to be watched for free or at least mean that I would lose 95% of my audience.
But Facebook, Youtube, Google are now all censoring the web and with the huge monopoly these and a few other corporations now have on the internet they could potentially remove all criticism of themselves from their websites this would completely destroy civil liberties and the masses do not even notice, it is not as if the mainstream media (owned by the same corporations that are ruining the internet) are going to expose themselves instead they will carry on rambling about celebrities private lives. Internet censorship is now happening everyday and they are slowly winning the battle it will not be long before the internet is under control unless we begin to create and use new alternative websites.
Something else that I have noticed is the fact that if I share my download links or a link that sends people to a website that requires payment for example Amazon or Sellfy my post will struggle to reach forty or fifty people! They do this to encourage Facebook users to pay Facebook to spread information that they should not have to pay for but in usual Facebook fashion Facebook decide that people that do not have the money to pay to be heard, should not be heard.
