Because of this, some of the biggest companies and websites virtually marched the streets of the internet on July 12 to support the Day of Action. This includes internet giants like Google, Netflix, Amazon and others. Since the FCC is inviting comments and protests on an official portal, different types of protests were done on the internet on that one day.
Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, posted a statement to educate the public on how they can react. Part of his statement says, “Right now, the FCC has rules in place to make sure the internet continues to be an open platform for everyone. At Facebook, we strongly support those rules. We’re also open to working with members of Congress and anyone else on laws to protect net neutrality. If we want everyone in the world to have access to all the opportunities that come with the internet, we need to keep the internet free and open.”
Twitter also wrote an official blog to support the Day of Action and Netflix tweeted about it. Other sites put up banners, alerts and prompt like this to promote the protest and raise awareness. All these efforts seem successful as the agency received 2 million comments of protest that day alone.
