Re: Not sure the comparison is valid

I used Facebook for some time because it was an essential component of communication for a statewide political activism group. It always irritated/concerned me to be dependent on it for this. But it was peerless for this purpose and still is. I stopped using my pseudonymous account but I am consequently in the dark about group leadership activity and important news.

So, yes, Facebook is a public utility.
