Ladies sharing pictures they are scantily dressed
On a picture sharing site like Instagram, you find images of women who are scantily dressed. Unsurprising, it is this kind of pics that get the most likes and comments (attention). They do this just in a bid to get more followers (popularity).
Sharing of Fake News
Combating fake news is one of the biggest problems social networks are encountering today. It is now very difficult to distinguish between fake and real news. Oftentimes, whoever is affected by the news releases a statement denying the news. This source of the fake news is not usually known but some blogs distribute these unconfirmed news stories to simply get more web traffic. So, before you share any news, you should know how to determine if its fake news and after if it is fake, ensure that you report it.
Celebrities talking about their Relationships
As a celebrity, everyone is interested in what happens in both their public and private life. For celebrities who are social media addicts, they tweet everything happening their lives including their relationship problems. If you are serious about your relationship, avoid talking about it on social media. Remember what happened to Teebillz when he did expose his relationship with Tiwa Savage.
