Facebook is Not a Monopoly, But Should Be Broken Up (Wired) — Demand monopsonists integrate horizontally, acquiring or copying user demand adjacent to their existing demand and gaining leverage over their suppliers (and advertisers, if that’s the model).

But if they can, they’ll own every square foot of demand that feeds those industries. (via Cory Doctorow)
