Ist Facebook systemrelevant?

„What if Facebook goes down? Ethical and legal considerations for the demise of big tech – Society is becoming increasingly dependent on data-rich, ‚Big Techplatforms and social networks, such as Facebook and Google.

In this article, we use the hypothetical failure of Facebook as a case study to analyse legal and ethical risks related to the closure of data-rich, Big Tech platforms. Focusing on the EU, we argue that existing governance frameworks are inadequate for addressing these risks and make preliminary recommendations with a view to setting an agenda for future research and policymaking on the demise of Big Tech platforms and data-rich companies more broadly.“
