Girls should beware of bullying on social media

By Mercy Nekesa | January 29th 2020 at 07:54:05 GMT +0300

Social media is like a supermarket where you can enter and pick whatever you want, but, ultimately, there is always a price to pay.

So much can happen with the pictures that you share with the wrong people. If you intend to use social media to grow your brand, then you are on the right track.

But if you happen to be sending nude pictures, you are exposing yourself to social media slavery.

There are many forms of cyber bullying; some target innocent victims while in other cases the victims put themselves in trouble.

The rise of cyber bullying cases in the country is the best indicator that social media users are desperate.

People are threatened that their nudes will be shared without their consent and blackmailed into parting with money.

Why would you send your nudes to someone you have not met because they promised you money? While everyone is looking for money, that is definitely not the right way to go about it.

Girls should respect their bodies.

Those who have no intentions of becoming socialites should keep their photos under wrap.
