Re: "Google leveraged its platform dominance"
Please. What is wrong with "used"? Has someone escaped from HR again?
You wanted them to 'used' like a 'used' condom when they can instead 'leverage' a more dynamic sounding word that gives the impression of force being applied with care and judgement and to ultimate effect?
Even when the impression is a total lie and gives a wholly false image of even remotely competent management.
This verbal virus spread far beyond HR years ago.
