Facebook was just hit with 2 big antitrust lawsuits. Here's what 'antitrust' means and how 'trust-busting' laws attempt to keep the biggest firms in US history from growing too powerful.

An 1889 political cartoon. Nawrocki/ClassicStock/Getty Images Antitrust laws were created to keep the big conglomerates, or trusts, that were forming across oil, railroad, steel, and other sectors in the late 1800s and early 1900s from growing too large and powerful. Now, regulators are coming after 21st-century big tech — the Federal Trade Commission and a group of 48 attorneys general filed two separate antitrust lawsuits against Facebook on Wednesday.

Who regulates social media?

Social media platforms have repeatedly found themselves in the United States government’s crosshairs over the last few years, as it has been progressively revealed just how much power they really wield, and to what purposes they’ve chosen to wield it.

So many Juul users— many of them teenagers —voluntarily posted about vaping that it hardly made a difference when the company in 2018 silenced its own accounts to help stem its popularity among underage users.
