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.

Donald J. Trump called on Monday Dec. 7 2015, for the United States to bar all Muslims from entering the country until the nation’s leaders can “figure out what is going on” after the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, Calif., an extraordinary escalation of rhetoric aimed at voters’ fears about members of the Islamic faith. This is unconstitutional, not realistic, shocking … just as Trump liked to have it perceived. Such statement is indeed shocking and unexpected, but it brings the real problem of the Muslims to the foreground and make people think.
