In May 2016, less than two years ago, Facebook reported that people spend an average of 50 minutes a day on its apps- Facebook, Whatsapp and Instagram. This figure was seen as a sign of the tech’s giant astonishing growth as well as increasing influence over our lives. But on the web, two years is a really long time. On the 1st of February, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO reported that users are spending in total 50 million hours less a day on Facebook.

Most of the social media giants operate as hosts rather than publishers as such they are exempt from being liable for user-generated content if they act to remove content when notified. Facebook, Twitter and other social media giants are obligated to remove illegal content when they are informed of its presence on their platforms.
