Why WordPress is Better than Facebook

“Because of the GPL, and the way it works, WordPress will be available as a publishing platform for decades to come, and long after the next social network comes and goes, for as long as the Internet remains free and accessible, anyone with WordPress will be able to have their say.”

Note: the GPL is the license under which WordPress is distributed that guarantees it will always be freely available.
