    I have read that young people do not use Facebook but like more active platforms such as TikTok . Facebook does seem to have a social agenda. Here is a short video posted today by South African Willem Petzer about a casual post on Facebook that caused him to get a thirty day suspension from Facebook:

    Zuckerberg is just banning anyone and anything that he does not like or does not understand. I think that it is time to start a new Free Speech Home where all things are considered that do not call for violence or veer into obscenity and pornography. If Trump would leave Twitter, it would go out of business. What do you think?

    Josh Hawley-R, the freshman senator from Missouri that defeated Claire McCaskill, is a proponent of breaking up Facebook. He's a youngster at 39 years old and has a lot of fresh ideas. I don't know his positions on a lot of issues. Might be someone to keep an eye on.

    Facebook does seem to have some of the earmarks of a monopoly. It will be interesting to watch.

    I’m not sure how best to address the problem, but they (he?) undoubtedly have far too much biased control over a huge swath of information exchange that dominates social media platforms—Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp. Google, YouTube, and Twitter are also part of this issue, though not owned by Facebook.
