Ladies sharing pictures of themselves scantily dressed

On a picture sharing sites like Instagram, you find images of women who are scantily dressed. Surprisingly, these pictures get the most likes and comments.

 

Sharing 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. The source of the fake news is not usually known, however, some blogs still go ahead to distribute these unconfirmed stories.

 

Celebrities talking about their relationships 

People are usually interested in what happens between celebrity couples, usually their private lives. For celebrities who are social media addicts, they tweet everything happening in 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 an expose on his relationship with Tiwa Savage.

 

Showing of wealth

Showing off monies and other luxury items on social media is now a trend especially among Nigerian celebrities. These celebrities share pictures holding or posing with wads of cash, luxury cars, and expensive designer clothes and bags. Then you wonder what they want to achieve by showing off their wealth.

 

Begging people to like or comment on your post

Funny right? You will be shocked that some Nigerians will beg or ask you to like or comment on their pictures. As far as the image is not for a competition, you should like or comment on any pics of your own accord. .
