One of the biggest global consumers goods companies, Unilever, is threatening to stop advertising on digital platforms like Facebook and Google if the companies don't clean up their acts. So what needs to be done to fix the Internet?

Andrew Keen is the author of, "How to Fix the Future," and he joins Cheddar to explain how the Internet and the companies that control it need to change. Keen argues that Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg have not gone far enough with their news feed adjustments.

Keen goes so far as to call Zuckerberg's move "cowardly."

Overall, Keen believes technology has a lot of potential. Keen says, "We cannot go backward."
