Social media’s problem isn’t bias, it’s advertising. And that we can fix.

Remember when we all thought the internet would miraculously make the world better? That was then, and now we know the truth: bad people still do bad things. They just do it on the internet.

The ad-driven dynamic of commercial social media makes it profitable to drive outrage. Thoughtful and fact-based dialog is the first casualty.

Furthermore, automation has made it profitable to give each user a view of the world that maximizes involvement, without any sense of proportion or reality. The baseless Q fantasies are a case in point.

The Q delusions exploit defects in human information processing. At a more general level, our social media giants exploit the same defects to sell ads, without giving us the social contact we crave, especially in a pandemic.

Underneath the neighborly and family content are social network algorithms designed to drive users to more extreme content. Facebook in particular has repeatedly

Google faces a major competition probe over its dominance of internet advertising after Britain leaves the EU. 

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has revealed it could investigate the tech giant over controversial changes it is making to data rules. It follows a complaint from Marketers for an Open Web, a group of publishers and marketing firms. 

They claim Google’s new so-called privacy sandbox will allow the firm to hoard customer data – giving it an even bigger stranglehold over the digital ads industry and firms that rely on its platform. 



Probe: The CMA said it was looking at whether the concerns could justify a full-blown competition investigation into Google's actions

Google faces UK scrutiny over new advertising data revamp

LONDON (AP) — Google faces fresh regulatory scrutiny in Britain over plans to revamp its ad data system, after an industry lobbying group complained to the competition watchdog that the changes would cement the U.S. tech giant’s online dominance.

Marketers for an Open Web, a coalition of technology and publishing companies, said Monday that it’s urging the U.K. competition watchdog to step in and force Google to delay the rollout of its “privacy sandbox” scheduled for early next year.

The new technology would remove so-called third party cookies that allow users to be tracked across the internet by storing information on their devices, replaced by tools owned by Google. That means login, advertising and other features would be taken off the open web and placed under Google’s control, the group said.

The Competition and Markets Authority confirmed it received the complaint.


“We take the matters raised in the complaint very
