You ultimately need public support and the right people in power to break up monopolies.  I don't know if that will happen with Google or Facebook or not.  There are some special circumstances that make those monopolies particularly powerful in a way that Standard Oil or US Steel weren't.  With a commodity like steel you can just choose who you want to buy from.  But with social media, if you run a business or you just want views, then you really have no choice over where you do business.  It's the public at large that gives Google all of its power and not content providers or individual users.  And right now there are no Western countries where freedom of speech is enough of a hot button issue to mobilize any kind of resistance to Silicon Valley censorship.

I think the Googles and FB's will end up being weakened by the GDPR since their business is information, and the GDPR is about giving people control of their information. I've already clicked the sliders on various accounts that say 'you don't get my personal info, and you can't share it with anyone'.

AT&T didn't die of natural causes, though. It was broken up by the government.

Hence, this:

All monopolies eventually break up or go away.  There's already signs that Google and Facebook are going the way of another former monopoly, US Steel, who stagnated and lost ground to hungrier competitors.  See also: AT&T.  Everyone thinks these monopolies are insurmountable until they're not.  There's no reason to think the FANG companies are going to be any different.
I don't think we can expect the government to do anything this time. On a long enough time frame, all businesses fail, but they can do a lot of damage while we're waiting.

I see you’re new to the something sensitive forums. Let me assure you that there are posters here that are SO STUPID they do not in fact understand this.

reminds me of an old joke:

the most effect birth control ever created is aspirin.  the trick is, instead of swallowing it, you just hold it between your knees.
