What exactly would Net Neutrality do to Facebook?

Basically the same effect supporters were asking from NN for telecoms:


“No one company should have the power to pick and choose which content reaches consumers and which doesn’t,” said Franken. “And Facebook, Google and Amazon, like ISPs, should be neutral in their treatment of the flow of lawful information and commerce on their platform.”

And then one week later, his political career was suddenly over. Politicians got the message loud and clear; Don't F* with Facebook.

Is there any reason to believe that Facebook had anything to do with releasing the pictures of him groping a woman?

Stop them from making zero-rating deals with ISPs.

I doubt they'd even need to make deals. Customers would blame ISPs for Facebook being slow before they'd blame Facebook.
