Facebook claims it’s not a monopoly, is your whole home screen (The Outline)
Ok, Facebook.
Paris Martineau in The Outline:

Facebook, which Mark Zuckerberg would like to remind you is totally, definitely, absolutely not a monopoly, wants Congress to know it’s all about fair competition. Or at least that’s how the company phrased it in its over 500 page-long list of answers to American lawmakers released Monday. Among the pressures it was trying to defuse was the focus on the stranglehold it has on digital communications; despite Facebook’s protests, it owns several of the most popular communications app, including the three most popular by a large margin.

 

According to data collected by Statista, four out of the ten most popular social media apps in the US are part of Facebook: Facebook (duh), Instagram (which is owned by Facebook), Facebook Messenger (you get the picture…), Twitter, Pinterest, Snapchat, Reddit, Tumblr, and WhatsApp (also Facebook).
