We continue to report important news about TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2019, which we follow from the ground up with the contributions of The Business Bank of Turkey. Snap CEO Evan Spiegel,who was one of the key speakers of the last day of the event, made statements about the monopoly research against Facebook.
In the TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2019 scene, Evan Spiegel said that anti-monopoly research lasted about 7 to 10 years, but the research was not reached at the end of the investigation. Spiegel underlined that he believes that many things can change over a long period of time, and does not expect much results from the anti-monopoly survey against Facebook.
Let’s also note that Facebook has copied and integrated many features from Snapchat into its platforms over the years. For example, one of instagram’s most popular features, Stories, is a feature first offered by Snapchat.
In particular, their privacy enhancements motivated Facebook to change its products, Spiegel said, adding that users often share stories they have prepared with Snapchat he also expressed that they had installed it.
Facebook is anti-competitive behavior, Spiegel said, adding that Facebook does not allow Snapchat’s tags and Snap codes on their platforms. Last September, we came across reports that Snap was preparing a file against Facebook.
Spiegel added that this file is real and that they have a file on Facebook’s anti-competitive behavior, and that the name of the file is Project Voldemort.
