I’m interested in what people think about the opposite end of internet regulations. Net Neutrality was put in place because many ISPs are effectively monopolies, but so are sites like Facebook and Youtube, and Net Neutrality doesn’t regulate them at all. Online censorship is becoming a bigger issue, and people are starting to recognize that social media is a de-facto public square. The same people who favor Net Neutrality suddenly go all “muh private business!” when we start talking about applying 1st Amendment principles to social networks.
