Facebook, Google : Internet or Minitel 2.0 ?

Post by Jamel O on Sat Mar 19, 2016 1:31 am

Lot of people think that internet is Facebook, Google and all "free" services like that, but in fact  all people using an internet connection are internet.

Indeed, Internet Network is totally decentralized and horizontal, this is for what it was very difficult to censor  this network because it has not a "central point"  in counter of telephone network.

The real dream of Google, Facebook and a lot of "cool" services are to be the central point but internet is clearly the opposite of this "Minitel" vision and if we think about this subject, we can conclude : Facebook could be a great minitel service in 80's like 3615 Ulla in France.

For me, Wikipedia is Internet because this is users who contribute to enrich this encyclopaedia in opposite of Google, Facebook  are just a "Minitel services"companies (in color with enrich text and design but deeply Minitel in use)  that use your datas and your privacy to make money.

If you want to know more about this subject : go to the webpage of Richard Stallman, father of Free Software (GPL / GNU Licences) and Linux, he explains why you should not use facebook => https://stallman.org/facebook.html

(his website isn't design but this is his content who is most important, he is one of the most important guy of "Computers and Internet", he changes our lives).

So what do you think about that, Are you agree or not with this conclusion : Facebook is Minitel 2.0 ?
