In an era where being famous seems to be everything, a lot of people are now doing anything, and I mean anything to get their names out there – doesn’t matter if they have to go the immoral route.
With social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Keek and Instagram, our youths do not bother to work hard for fame and success anymore. And who can blame them, when girls instantly trend just by posting nude photos on Twitter and Instagram, they get worldwide attention just by posting a Youtube or Keek video- it just seems like the perfect answer for fame-obsessed young women.
Let’s face it, we can go on and on about how repugnant some of those acts are, but the fact remains that they still pique our interests, we still talk about them and give them what they are looking for – attention. Even well known celebs trying to raise their profile have now resorted to posting virtually nude photos, pictures with the doing drugs and the likes.
The young ones are not exempted. Secondary school students now put up “sexual” pictures of themselves on these social media sites, and since most parents don’t even get the appeal of some of these sites, they have no idea what their kids are up to.
