True, "startup" was a bad word choice on my part. I was grasping for a
word that distinguishes them from The Big Five that currently control
nearly everything on the Internet.
In a system as vast and important as the net, it benefits all of
humanity to have its control broader than the number of people who can
fit in a golf cart.

I had heard about the FB thing, but had thought that was opt-in. If not
requiring explicit opt-in, I don't think the word "evil" is entirely out
of bounds. Psychosocial profiling derived from mass data collection is
something we should all be wary of.

VPS with it.
