Google and Facebook have dominated the online advertising industry in recent years, with analysis company Pivotal Research reporting recently that Google and Facebook combined accounted for 99% of all online ad industry growth in 2016.
Together, they account for more than 70% of the $73 billion spent each year on digital advertising. Nearly 80% of all online referral traffic comes from Google and Facebook. This is an immensely profitable business.
The political ideology shared by these tech giants is notably left-leaning. As Google and Facebook create new applications based on the latest technology to influence opinions and censor news content, their monopolies pose a significant threat to Americans’ First Amendment rights.
We ask Congress to regulate Google and Facebook like utilities to alllow new competitors to thrive in the marketplace.
