Steve Bannon, White House Chief Strategist, Wants Google, Facebook Treated Like Monopolies

August 3rd, 2017 Comments off
WhiteHouseChiefStrategistSteveBannonWantsGoogleFacebookTreatedLikeMonopolies

Bannon is one of the driving forces behind Breitbart, and is widely seen as having played an important role in President Donald J. Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Google has been online for almost 19 years now.

Facebook has been for 13 years.

During that timeframe, both companies have become dominating giants.

In 2017, Google is the top ranking website in the United States, and the world.  It’s closely followed by YouTube, which is owned by Alphabet, Google’s parent company.

Facebook is ranked number three world wide, per WeForum, which cites data from Alexa.

Google, YouTube and Facebook are all routinely used marketing tools in manufactured housing — and all other kinds of marketing too.

Disclosure. MHProNews’ sister operation, MHMarketingSalesManagement.com provides professional services to the industry, which routinely maximize online results through ‘white hat,’ organic methods. These involve using the resources named in this article, but often by using MHProNews.com, MHLivingNews.com or other methods that allow the user to skip paying anything to those giant tech companies.

Besides having the world’s top 3 visited websites, Alphabet/Google and Facebook account for 99 percent of revenue growth in digital advertising in the U.S. in 2016, according to the analysis of IAB estimates.

Overall the U.S. digital advertising industry grew 21.8 percent in 2016, says Pivotal Research.

The big point is that if Google and Facebook are the primary interfaces to buyers, over the long-run they own the relationships and the related data,” Pivotal Research Senior Analyst Bill Wieser told Business Insider via email. “Every partner they work with is subservient.”

Internet Utilities, Advertising, and Monopolies

Wieser isn’t the only one who sees potential problems. White House Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, has long been saying that the internet giants need to be regulated like utilities, and treated like monopolies.

In fact, as The Intercept points out, Facebook’s founder even Mark Zuckerberg called Facebook a “social utility” for the longest time.

I think there’s confusion around what the point of social networks is. A lot of different companies characterized as social networks have different goals — some serve the function of business networking, some are media portals. What we’re trying to do is just make it really efficient for people to communicate, get information and share information. We always try to emphasize the utility component.” – Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg told Time in a 2007 interview.

However, as they also point out Zuckerberg appears to have taken away that slogan in recent years, likely at the advice of legal council, hoping to avoid just what Bannon and others are considering.

Facebook co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg, is already a force in manufactured housing marketing, could be poised to enter the factory built housing space, and is widely rumored to be running for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. Image credit as shown.

When Bannon says he believes there should be laws put in place to help regulate these things he does not mean by letting the  government take complete control. Rather, they could cap advertising fees and prices, since many see it as an essential place for people to advertise their businesses (see disclosure, second image, above). 

Rumors have it that Zuckerberg, who announced a road trip back in January, might be gearing up to run for the White House. Is part of Bannon’s strategy to head off a potential POTUS Trump 2020 rival?

POTUSDefinedManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsThe trip the Facebook founder spoke if is supposed to be for personal growth, “meeting regular folk”, and to “understand America.”  That sounds like an exploration of a campaign, further supported by the fact that Zuckerberg has hired Clinton campaign team members (more on that in a future report).

Bannon is known for edgy, controversial positions – and for being brilliant in his work. The tweet above is one example of some of his more controversial statements. It may also shed light on the Zuckerberg, Facebook, Google strategy. Image credit, Twitter. 

Google and Facebook Are Growing Offline As Well

Regular Daily Business News readers will know that Google and Facebook both have physical stakes in the market as well. Google is planning to build 300 units of modular housing that will be used for temporary employee housing; and Facebook – although their building method has yet to be confirmed – is planning to build a whole “village” or town called Willow Campus.
