What it’s like living in the information stack

The FAANG walled garden is Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google. These are services that allow you to use their service, while they control the content you see and use your data to do so. 

It is always scary to be reminded that all these free apps that we download have cloud server farms where they store all of our information which we thought was private. 

When I really think about it, it does make sense that this feudal world of ours has its ways of gaining power and becoming successful. They become successful in this society by controlling what we see in their app. This makes the users enjoy using their app as the provided content is controlled by the data they have stored.

  1. I enjoy your honesty in this post Caitlyn, I agree with the sentiments you shared in terms of it makes sense for this to be how the online economy works. In my blog I shares similar sentiments but complain more about how it’s a scary time we live in. I enjoy your realistic approach this week thanks for writing a great post


  2. hey caitlyn! love your post!! super relevant to todays society, particularly with all the new apple products that now even listen to our conversations which is crazy! in my post I touched on how feudalism is something that is bad for our society and will continue to be bad for the future. Those are just my thoughts though 🙂


  3. Hey Caitlyn, I really enjoyed reading about your post and your thoughts on the walled garden. In my post, I mentioned the walled garden and focused on Facebook and the carryover of information. Your remediation was really relatable, and very clever too! 🙂
