Is Facebook The New Government?

More people are not only using Facebook but becoming actively involved reading, engaging, and voicing opinions over user policy changes daily. The level of participation has exponentially grown and often Facebook has taken into account the thoughts of its users, like a true democracy, and adjusted settings as necessary.

In a time where people tweet more than text, send links more than resumes, email more than mail, its only a matter of time before there will need to be regulations related to social media and not just to protect people’s interests but also to create organizational processes. Just as the SEC is an independent agency that monitors and enforces securities markets, soon there will need to be an agency to monitor and enforce online and privacy rights – or maybe we already have a new processes to interact with our online lives: Facebook.
