Google — One of the Largest Monopolies in the World

Story at-a-glance -

  • Google monopolizes several different markets, including search and advertising. Bing, its closest web search competitor, has just 2 percent of the market; Google has 90 percent
  • Google also controls 60 percent of the global advertising revenue on the internet. One of the primary reasons smaller advertisers cannot compete is because they don’t have the user data Google has
  • While not the sole threat to privacy, Google is one of the greatest. It catches every single thing you do online when using a Google-based feature, and builds powerful personality profiles of all users
  • Evidence suggests Google’s Android operating system circumvents a customer’s decision not to share location data by tracking the addresses of nearby cellular towers instead, and sharing that information with Google
  • Monopolies like Google pose a serious threat to democracy and basic liberties. Take back control by boycotting Google-based services, including Gmail, Google search engines, Google Docs and Chrome
