Never heard of #FAANG before. Seems to be the same thing as the (better known?) #GAFAM. Maybe we should standardize on one term? What are your arguments for your choice? #surveillacecapitalism

TBH I choose #FAANG because it has the more comprehensive Wikipedia article. #GAFAM redirects to "Big Four tech companies" (GAFA) and only has 3 lines of text:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GAFAM

We could also go with MAGA FENTY, for #Microsoft, #Apple, #Google, #Amazon, #Facebook, #Ebay, #Netflix, #Twitter and #Yahoo

#GAFAM seems to be primarily used by our french friends. The french Wikipedia article is longer (but I don't understand it) 😀

I learned the acronym when @LaQuadrature did their poster campaign. https://gafam.info/

I guess I'll just use both until I see a trend. #FAANG #GAFAM
