Like: Compare nouns
As: Compare verbs
In this question "Like" should be the correct answer. Eg: Cats like dogs sometimes play fetch.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

As has been used as it presents the role or the function of internet - direct media channel to customers for the sponsors.

Hope it helps !
