A step in the right direction. With time, more stringent laws will be enforced to further regulate the excesses of social media.

Google especially has an unfair advantage especially in advertising of their subsidiaries, no other companies can compete with them on search engine.

For example, Google has a subsidiary called YouTube, if a small competitor wants to do similar video sharing as YouTube, that startup wont get traffic at all because once a user type in any keyword relating to video, the search results shows all videos from YouTube on the first page. That is bad and unfair..Google with their search engine kills small businesses.

With Google search engine, Google acts like a very big global monopoly that wont allow small competitor to survive because they want advertising money for only themselves


Then that's not Google's fault I think..the goverment is just waking up to it's responsibility in some sense think. Will you let some one else shade market in front of your store before. Nature of business is inherently competitive.

Care to explain what this 'regulation' in other countries mean?

Some of you would not care even if they're tying a rope in your necks, long as it's your preferred political candidate doing do.

read the article.

it's not regulation of user's activities. it's basically regulating the business environment which the business operates. Basically, telling Facebook as a business how they can use their business to benefit small businesses. Same goes for Google.
This has been of concern to these countries for years because there's been complaints against on how they force smaller businesses as well as competitors to fail due to unfair business advantages.


It has nothing users, so they won't need VPN.

shocked




Quite a mischievous and sensational headline
They mean they hope to achieve a level-playing ground for businesses in the UK who can't have their ads on some of these social media and search engine sites who have far reach.

UK will NEVER muzzle free speech.

Somebody is twisting the facts to make it look like it is okay to regulate social media.
Remember that breakfast in Sheraton is not the same as breakfast in Mai Shai's kiosk.

A regulation of social media in Nigeria will be worse than Armageddon.
UK is regulating so that her people can reach out, Nigeria wants to regulate so that her people can not reach out.

Social media if it's run by single companies as Google YouTube and Facebook is in itself tyranny.no one power should be concerntratng on one hand. creating competitive strata is decentralization. I think it's a welcome development. What's the alternative to YouTube?.

YouTube.

Nothing wrong there.
Google worked their way up to that level.
It wasn't handed over to them.
