Facebook is a collection of communities. As is twitter. As is WordPress.com … and so on … However social networks are owned and run by corporations … and corporations are setup with the primary agenda of “making profit” … So …
Are corporations the best structures to be running communities ? Or does that just lead to the corporation promoting their own agendas, like “profit for corporation first, freedoms of community members eroded as best suits the corporation as a consequence” ?
Does a corporation have the right to “own” a community ? Or is that a contradiction in terms ?
Or perhaps we do need a “big brother” watching over us, making the tough choices, so we don’t have to ?
