| Alt Tech |
|New social media platforms.|
Alternative technology is becoming increasingly important as outlets to circumvent censorship from the digital monopolies.
While most Alt Tech companies declare themselves to be independent to start with, various pressures, including legal threats and economic reasons soon make many conform. If they become too successful, the cartel companies with their unlimited access money have a history of simply buying them up.
Some alternative technologies are not dependent on companies, but are user-to-user based, making them much harder to close down or censor.
