I'm in Chile, in Puerto Montt City. TV and Newspapers are controlled by monopolic groups but a lot of people use Social Media. A lot of people don't trust the official media. There are serveral case where Social Media help to show the true. One iconic case is the Murder of Camilo Catrillanca. Goverment can't censor the Social Media. The only censorship is provided by the people who denounce publications. Now I was some banned in Facebook but tomorrow I have all my attributes.
The problem in Chile is the power of the bigest companies. They use their power to control politics and is not easy try to make changes for us the people.
