    The up side of losing net neutrality might be the death of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, et al. If ISPs decide to create a "social media" tier for an extra fee per month, I won't pay it and I bet many other won't either, leading to the eventual death of social media through user attrition. Hmm, that might be a good thing. ;)

    Those costs won’t make it to consumers, they’ll be buried in the ecosystem of companies that keeps Facebook free. Wouldn’t it be interesting to measure the true value of social media to the end consumer this way though?

    Nah, we are more like the "Gilligan's Island" of the internet whereas Facebook is more like North America, Europe and Asia combined.
