If we want to encourage a more inclusive, fair society we have to break the dominance of the "I know more people than you" social meme.
The way we do that is simple. We should tax people based on how many Facebook friends they have.
Yes, as WELL as other taxes. Not in spite of. Quite simply this policy would reward people who are social outcasts. And that's fair. The whole point of society is to equalise the playing field.
What if you’re not Facebook?
I have only 1 or 2 friends but on Twitter I have 2000
when I was on evil Facebook for one year I had 1000 friends. They were all fake - not friends at all. Facebook ‘friends’ are a fraud anyway.
Its actually fraudulent how they harvest and sell friends but bevasue the WWW is a lawless place - free for all - Mark Z is allowed to keep on con people.
If you don’t wa t to be a social outcast - Facebook really is not the place. You’ll end up more of an outcast the more you use that piece of evil work.
I have about 60 friends on FB. They are family/stepfamily/people I've met on forums. On Twitter I have about 95 people following me. I disagree with the idea of taxing people by the number of friends they have.
Its quality of friends, not quantity, which counts
