What do you think about Square and the new power of the Internet?
Are they the overlords of the world?
Or are they merely puppets?
Are we really going to be living in a world in which Square is the overlord?
The answers to those questions are going to have a lot to do with how we define “overlord,” “puppet,” and “possible overlords.”
We’ll see how the new powers play out over the next few months.
But as it stands, it seems like Square has decided to take a “no-holds-barred approach” to its power to dominate the web.
In the coming months, we’ll see some interesting developments in the form of the upcoming Facebook-Square collaboration, which will likely include more direct content sharing between the two platforms, according to a report from The Verge.
But this isn’t the first time Square has taken a stand on this front.
In 2013, Square announced that it would launch a new mobile app that would make it easier for users to share content directly with each other on Facebook.
While this wasn’t the end of the internet overlords, it certainly seemed to signal the start of the end for them.
The Verge story makes it clear that this partnership between Facebook and Square was designed to provide users with the best possible user experience by giving them access to all of the same features and services as Facebook, and also giving them an opportunity to see what the company has to offer in a way that the Facebook app couldn’t.
And the news comes just days after Square’s Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder, Shervin Pishevar, was quoted as saying that Facebook’s “overlordship” of the web is an “epidemic” that has “really gotten out of hand.”
So while Square is clearly looking to take on Facebook’s hegemony, this isn`t the first move Square has made to take this new power seriously.
Back in 2013, the company announced plans to use Facebook to power its own new platform, called Facebook Stories.
This project, according the Wall Street Journal, was supposed to take place over the course of a year, but it quickly fell through due to budget problems.
But even though it’s not clear when that project will actually go ahead, the news does show that Square is getting serious about building an open-source platform that allows users to build and use their own websites, apps, and other content in an easy, friendly way.
And with that said, it looks like we may be seeing a new era of internet overlorddom in the coming weeks.
