Reminder: companies like Facebook and Google are a threat to the Internet and the Web. They want to keep you on their site (with Facebook it's pretty obvious, with Google it's through AMP) so they can keep serving you adverts, which earns them money.

Those companies don't care about open access to information, privacy or consumer choice. Those values aren't profitable. What do you think they'll do when they control the majority of Web traffic?

It's not going to be "fight to uphold the independence and privacy of users".

@gid google arguably already controls the majority of web traffic due to dominating in the client space

@BalooUriza yup. They're already too big, and they're still experiencing growth. But it's not too late to divest from their networks and start reclaiming an open, independent Internet.
