The Net Neutrality Debate Consumes the Web

It’s been nearly a week since the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) passed new rules that will allow it to regulate the Internet as a public utility. Aside from a couple of viral distractions, social media conversations have revolved around the FCC and net neutrality since the recent ruling.

Opinions are strong, with politics and partisan rhetoric playing an increasingly large role in the framing of the narrative. Beneath the excitement and vitriol lies a profoundly engaged user base that is highly reminiscent of 2012’s anti-SOPA, even if today’s language lacks its unity. With so many consumed by net neutrality and its various connected topics, marketers may want to stay on top of new developments.
