To Vlog or Not to Vlog, That is the Question
In the recent decade, social media has become an entity of its own and its impact in our lives is massive. The latest trend of vlogging has taken the world by storm. People like Irfan Junejo, Hania Moin and Sajid Shikari are just some of the biggest names in the Pakistani vlogging and youtuber community. Youtube has become a huge platform worldwide for people to become social media stars by uploading videos of the content they want to post and gain followers. The vlogging industry is gradually becoming bigger and bigger in our country so it is time we analyzed the community a bit.
It hardly takes any effort to record and post videos online. You just pick a random topic or the thing you are most passionate about, record yourself talking about it on your iPhone or Android phone and upload it. There is a demographic for every kind of content on the internet so someone will watch your video for sure. If your content is trendy then it could gain hits rapidly. It can be as random or as popular as you want.
The point is, you do not need to have a specific set of skills or talent to get famous on the internet. You could gain popularity by posting videos of playing stupid pranks on others, playing games whether you are good at them or not, talking about social issues that you have no real knowledge of, or give your “unpopular” opinions on controversial topics whether you really think that way or not.
Vloggers that post quality content and talk about stuff that actually matters should get the recognition they deserve. But if you are copying someone else’s ideas, doing stupid things on camera for views, embarrassing others, or insulting someone just for the sake of views, then should you really be famous?
The social platform is huge and instead of using it to talk about important issues or entertain people with original content, some take the easy route and just do what everyone else is doing. They do not care about the quality of the content but the quantity of viewers they can get. People even work freelance and post pictures or videos about what’s trending, then claim to be “professional” bloggers when all they are posting is fluff pieces with no originality. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be changing anytime soon and we have to look forward to a youth that is inspired by the Jake Pauls of this world rather than the Superwomans that we should really be looking to.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
