Facebook tax

As the tech companies of Silicone Valley are doing everything in their power to engineer addicting products, I propose a tax. If cigarettes are addicting and taxed, we should impose a tax on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc because they are addicting. As I see some of the insidious things the tech companies are doing to my children (snapchat streaks) and how Facebook is using everything about our data to mine for evil purposes, I think we should have some benefits as a society. It’s time for the Tech companies to do some good in the world. How nice does a “Social Media Tax” sound? I would love it. Get to work representatives! Looks like Marc Benioff agrees (link)
