Yesterday was the much-ballyhooed Net Neutrality Day of Action, an online demonstration day on which thousands of websites, people and services called attention to the impending revocation of net neutrality regulations by the FCC. And the turnout, it turns out, was quite impressive.
It would be quite difficult to use the web at all yesterday without running into at the least a handful of pop-ups, site takeovers and funny messages all aimed at get people to make their voices heard on the net neutrality debate.
Tumblr, Twitter, Netflix, Yelp, Kickstarter, Mozilla, Vimeo, Spotify, Airbnb, Amazon, Reddit, Etsy, YouTube, Twitch and many, many more participated; we amassed a few interesting ones into a gallery .
The broad exposure and ease of access to feedback mechanisms( some websites let you call your representative with a keypress, others submitted remarks to the FCC on your behalf) built for a fairly tremendous volume of reactions.
