What is the biggest problem according to Ocasio-Cortez, that people were left without communicating online yesterday
American politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sees last night's lack of online communication, from the collapse of the social networking system, as a destruction of freedom and democracy.
She emphasizes the fact that both Facebook and Instagram and WhatsApp are managed by the same owner. According to her, this destroys freedom. Comment: “Latin America lives on WhatsApp. "I am amazed at how many people have underestimated how catastrophic this collapse of the system was," wrote Forbes journalist Jose Caparroso.
"Everything has to do with Facebook's monopoly mission that has created, copied and competed with every possible platform and thus destroyed the freedom of society and democracy. As a reminder: WhatsApp was not created by Facebook. "Facebook was horrified by this platform and bought it."
And so it really happened. Zuckerberg of Facebook bought WhatsApp in 2014.
"Maybe a billionaire prone to destroying democracies should not be allowed to own so much space online, and maybe that's why antitrust laws exist that officials who do not lobby for billionaire-owned interests should start implementing. "Just an idea," Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram ceased to function from 16:45 yesterday, until after midnight. Upon his return no one gave any reason.
On September 13, the Wall Street Journal began publishing a series of details based on several documents, revealing that Facebook was aware of a wide range of problems with what it offers, such as the teenage girls' mental health impairment from Instagram. Misinformation about the January 6 Capitol riots. The reports have caught the attention of government officials.
Some allude that this may be the reason for the blockage, but it is not something confirmed.
