"It's like letting strangers into our house without an invitation."
Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, the GAFAMs reign over the digital empire where thousands of data are stored continuously to be sold to the highest bidder. For many years, teacher Philippe Gendreau has encouraged young people to reflect on the power exercised by these media technology giants in their daily lives and the impact they have on our modern democracies.

From their impact on the environment to the tricks they develop to hold us captive, the GAFAMs are scrutinized in this essential essay to equip young people, teachers and parents alike.
