Does it make sense to breakdown giant tech companies strickly from the point of view of consumer??

For example:
1. Will consumer/advertisers benefits more when we have Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook, etc etc as different companies and compete with each other?? User can switch platform if they don't like the policy and operations of one company..

2. Can AWS serve their customer better if they are not part of Amazon?? Can Amazon still afford to run thier online retail business with huge loss without having profits from AWS/Alexa/Kindle products??

3. Will consumer/advertiser benefits when google is divided into mutiple smaller but focused companies??

4. Similarly for IBM, Oracle, Apple, Cisco, etc etc

    What we need is fair competition, not simple breakdown. In software industry it’s much harder to achieve...

    Having a moat to funnel $ is critical. Breaking up will make moon shots harder

    Yes all these should be split up vertically.
