The "dark net" is a lot like the Internet of 1993. Conspiracy theories, virtually no online shopping, amateurish DIY advertising and websites mostly in text.

Unless you go to the tor Facebook site, which is pretty much Facebook.

The most commonly used of the three anonymous systems is Tor - which is so prominent that mainstream websites like Facebook, The New York Times and The Washington Post operate versions of their websites accessible on Tor's network. Obviously, those sites don't seek to keep their identities secret, but they have piggybacked on Tor's anonymizing web technology in order to allow users to connect privately and securely without governments knowing.

IIRC, the government controls some of the tor network. Probably multiple governments.

Yep. Gopher and Archie would be totally appropriate if someone would bother setting some up.

It's not really possible to "control" the tor network.

However, there are certain types of attacks that make it possible to figure out locations of some types of services. But those types of attacks are limited by difficulty. Sort of like how you can own the bitcoin network if you can control 50.1 of the network.

Browser attacks and JavaScript exploits are still the number one way to remove anninmity from dark web users.
