Is Facebook a monopoly? That's been in the news lately. Actually that's been in the news for years now.

I don't think they're a monopoly. You don't have to use Facebook. You don't have to use Facebook services. You don't even really need to see Facebook ads with the right plug-ins installed. There are plenty of alternative social networks out there. With more coming online all the time.

Is Facebook too big? Definitely. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if Instagram and WhatsApp were spun-off.

Does Facebook have problems? For sure. Just read the latest security news.

Should Facebook be broken up? Um, Why? It's not like they are 1970s AT&T.
