MENA Youth take to the Free For All Social Media

MENA Youth take to the Free For All Social Media

Al Monitor IRAN PULSE produced this article that is summarised as the US tech giants Apple and Google have removed Iranian-developed apps from their online stores, sparking a backlash.  Meanwhile most of the MENA youth take to the free for all social media without any second thoughts as to who is offering these media and for which purpose. As put by The Economist : “A NEW commodity spawns a lucrative, fast-growing industry, prompting antitrust regulators to step in to restrain those who control its flow. A century ago, the resource in question was oil. Now similar concerns are being raised by the giants that deal in data, the oil of the digital era. These titans—Alphabet (Google’s parent company), Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft—look unstoppable . . . .” Reviewing some of the comments to this article clearly show the overall sentiment of the local uses bear against the above named data providers. More thoughts? Please comment.
