Feudalism is something I didn’t expect to hear in my communications and media degree in 2020 but well here we are. While Feudalism is the term to describe the system that governed the societies of medieval Europe, it does have its place in the Comms and Media. We live in what can be only described as a digital feudalism, where what used to be kings are now owners of tech companies. Instead of paying tax with our dollars we pay with our information. Many social media platforms thrive off this digital feudalism. For example, a site like facebook’s main way for maintaining its massive profits is collecting users data and selling to companies in a more specific market and tech companies are only getting more aggressive with better and better data harvesters to collect your information.
