But how do you know a social media blackout is a social media blackout unless you go on social media to check? 🤔 #SocialMediaBlackout— Rob AF. (@RobForbesDJ) June 20, 2017
A planned social media boycott by users on Wednesday appears to be getting very little traction because well... people are online and sharing some of the funniest memes.
On Tuesday organisers of the 'Social Media Blackout' campaign called on mobile users to boycott social media and refuse to buy data because of high prices.
South Africa is said to have the second highest data contract prices among a select group of BRICS member countries - Brazil, Russia, India and China.
