Ecosystems are too big to ignoreCommercial ecosystems on internet become big and unavoidable by definition of their success. It is important, as there are more and more professions, whose professional success requires participation in certain ecosystems. In my mind, LinkedIn and Facebook are front runners in by that criteria. Making people aware of privacy policies and turning them away if they do not agree is a strong-arming policy which serves only the ecosystem operator entity, but not participant people or society at large. It is a pretend choice, not a real one.
An example is LinkedIn for some types of businesses. Can a technology recruiter survive these days without a LinkedIn contract? I do not think so.
Sender forces you to subscribe for a policyPeople often operate as guests of ecosystems. They may have financial or personal needs to attend to content offered by ecosystem participants. There are other drivers which deprive visitors of real choice.
In the matter of fact, Google shows an example of an opposite - one can browse Google Maps on Android with or without GPS turned on.
This is especially a problem, when one buys a phone at a carrier shop, which is broadly advertised having an application ecosystem and specific applications in it.
So, if all this coercion by companies is so prominent and still is unchecked at large, is it time to ask for regulation?
