I am an experienced Social Media practitioner with a strong passion for connecting with customers of brands. As part of a team, I presently work on the social media account of a leading European auto company. On this job, I have brought my vast experiences in journalism, marketing, search engine optimisation and branding to play.
In between watching XFactor and Strictly Come Dancing, my mind keeps wondering how easy for a nobody to become somebody. In this age now, there are many platforms for any talented individual to showcase his or her “wares”.
Among the greatest platforms, apart from XFactor, American Idol and all the others, is YouTube. YouTube has become the platform of choice for many who know the importance and relevance. All it takes is a good video recording camera and a steady hand either in your bedroom or living room. And in a second you are broadcasting to the world.
The most interesting of all these is that mobile phones now come with video cameras as standard. You need not invest in buying a “big” camera.
This, however, brings me to another point. While thousands are making use of these new technologies positively, some are advertising their wares negatively on it. Do you know that YouTube among many other platforms are gradually been infiltrated by porn? Porn disguised in every form. People are beginning to realise this is probably the only unregulated forum to post “dirty” stuff online.
And now you wonder what the children are exposed to.
Wait a minute.
To be continued.
