I don't think this will ever happen, the internet is way too useful to them and helps them to spread disinformation and propaganda easily. I don't think they'd take away a tool that is so useful to them.
If you were trying to create a database on your populace detailing individual people's connections, families and interests, what the he'll could be more successful than Facebook?
Kogan assured the MTurk users their Facebook data would “only be used for research purposes” and remain “anonymous and safe”.
However, the Facebook data was then used to generate sophisticated models of each of their personalities using the so-called “big five” personality traits and characteristics – openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, neuroticism (known as the OCEAN scale).
By summer 2014, Kogan’s company had created an expansive and powerful dataset. His business partner boasted on LinkedIn that their private outfit, Global Science Research (GSR), “owns a massive data pool of 40+ million individuals across the United States – for each of whom we have generated detailed characteristic and trait profiles”.
Documents show SCL agreed to a contract with GSR, whereby it would pay its data collection costs in order to improve “match rates” against SCL’s existing datasets or to enhance GSR’s algorithm’s “national capacity to profile capacity of American citizens”.
lol :>) yea you are probably right . I was out shoveling all this global warming this morning so it may turn out to be helpful in getting things done and keeping this old body moving .
I think we will see each other in Internet Withdrawl treatment centres!
But they know that we can and do change our thinking and strategies . If it could be done using AI it might be a bit more of a threat but as the "fake news" meme has taught us they would need to hire every X prostitutes and even then they don't have the numbers or the $$$ . Humans are and can be very creative .I don't think they could create a air tight system on the internet because they need it and want it and it has put them in a catch 22 situation they though they would be able to handle but too many people have seen the bs and are creative enough to get around it .
As to the social networking road block: what if they have already learned all they really need to know about us by now?

That's ridiculous. Nobody will shut down internet, it will become more controlled. That's all.
A cosmic event or similar could shut down the internet.
When "THEY" shut down the Internet, where will we go?
