Like in my article about Gigantic Social Media hard to Stop and the Powerful Social Media and Internet, the role of Social Media globally is huge and unprecedented. The role of social media in the United States is also immense and impressive, but it pictures a different role then the global role the social media are playing. In the United States the social media are (shadow) banning specific political websites and individuals … and politicians.
But that’s not all. It actively and publicly gives preference to one political party (the Democrats) and works against and suppresses anything from the other political party, the Republicans. And it’s not only the social media, but also the mainstream media. And you know what? They are stupid to put all of their effort in one place, because the reckoning will come and will dismantle the social media as it is now, and the mainstream media as well.
Another issue is that right before the major midterm elections, the social media are increasing the efforts to banning one political party and all its sympathizers. They openly try to interfere with the elections in the United States. It’s not that they didn’t do that before like this, I remember several elections they tried to influence in Europe too.
If the conservative media be independently in a safe way, and remove itself collectively from the mainstream Internet presence as it is now, the current social media and the mainstream media will be in for a very bad awakening.

Facebook, Google, Twitter and YouTube, to name four of the social media companies, are proof of the competence and creative innovation of America. The success of those companies are beyond believe. What started with nothing then some ideas in the minds of their creators and founders, they created four companies, which now (in 2018) are used by billions of people all over the globe. What started out as American companies, are now spread throughout the world and integrated in societies in almost every country in the world. Actually, they are integrated in the personal lives of more then three billion people worldwide with an annual growth of 13%.
There are politicians and ignorant citizens calling to regulate or even to stop those giants. They might get hurt by the harsh counter, which for sure will follow.

Each minute of your time awake or asleep, there are billions of people on the Internet doing their things. Yes, literally billions each minute, each second of the day, none-stop. And each year this number only increases to the absolute extremes, never predicted, never seen on such scale.
The world counts in January 2018 7,593,000,000 people, or with other words, 7 billion and about 593 million people. From those people, 55% live in cities. From those almost 7.6 billion people, about 4 billion (53%) people have Internet access, which is 7% up from 2017! From those people connected to the Internet, 3.196 billion people (42%) using the social media, which is an increase of 13% from 2017. Throughout the world, 5.135 billion people (68%) are using mobile phones, a growth of 4% with 2017. From those mobile phone users, 2.958 billion people (39%) are using the social media.
And then each minute, 3.3 million posts in Facebook, 150,000 emails are sent, 500 hours of YouTube videos uploaded, 29 million messages sent with WhatsApp, 1,440 posts are posted at WordPress websites, 448,800 tweets tweeted, 65,972 photos are uploaded to InstaGram and 3.8 million searches are performed in Google search engine. It’s powerful.
