Mark Zuckerberg is the dictator of the Facebook nation

6년 전

Speaking during an interview at The Next Web conference in Amsterdam, [Pirate Bay founder] Peter Sunde said that there is "no democracy" online.

"People in the tech industry have a lot of responsibilities but they never really discuss these things ... Facebook is the biggest nation in the world and we have a dictator, if you look at it from a democracy standpoint, Mark Zuckerberg is a dictator. I did not elect him. He sets the rules," Sunde told CNBC.

"And really you can't opt out of Facebook. I'm not on Facebook but there are a lot of drawbacks in my offline world. No party invitations, no updates from my friends, people stop talking to you, because you're not on Facebook. So it has real life implications."

This is precisely why we need more people to use things like Steem, Synereo & GetGems.
We deserve to control our own social networks' growth and evolution. This man meets with the Internet censorship czar of China for Blah's sake.

Facebook is a public company. You get voting rights by buying shares not by having an account.


No you don't. If I had shares of Facebook, I can't walk into their headquarters and say, "Do this!" That's not even close to how it works.
Like fuzzyvest said, by using alternate social media platforms we impact the current ones. No one wants to be the next social media wasteland because they failed to adapt.

Many people are leaving Farcebook and posting on Steemit - good to see!
