Facebook and Antitrust
I am still processing the recently announced F8 Facebook changes, but it seems that Facebook is moving further in the direction of becoming a platform for other content, such as music. As it becomes more of a gatekeeper to eyeballs, the issues of who has and does not have access to the platform and on what terms will become contentious. It’s a good time to review these posts on how these will (but should not) be viewed as antitrust issues. (See here and here and here.) Last week’s hearings on Google are a preview of what is in store for Zuckerberg, Sandberg, and crew.
