Today lots of people are wasting their precious time on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Viber & WhatsApp with useless chats & online gossip, spreading fake news & infinite scrolling their feed again & again. In order to put a check on this malpractice, country Uganda is planning a never heard & seen solution – Tax Social Media Users! Under the brand new “Social Media Tax Method” a daily tax of $0.05 per mobile phone subscriber shall be charged from the people for using social media services. The method is the result of Uganda president’s ideology that “idle talk on social media is costing the country much-needed time & income“. Well, we hope that on roll-out, the new idea will help Uganda to rationalize the social media use in the country & will also help the country financially!
