Facebook is showing #Australia what happens when you rely on an unaccountable corporation for essential public services.
Yes, we need to switch to #ProtocolsNotPlatforms. These are natural monopolies; competition naturally disappears, they need to be public.
Ditch Facebook + Instagram + Google + Zoom etc., of course. Then stop relying on some corporation to provide it. Use (and build) #federated systems owned and operated by the people, not by profit-seekers.
Natural monopolies that should be public services, are in @pluralistic wheelhouse. I'm sure he's got a better response than our media “oh no, what centralised private corporation can save our public services”
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
