The Age Of Influence Preview

The rise of social media has given birth to a new breed of celebrities – influencers. These individuals, armed with their charm and relatability, have amassed a loyal following that trusts their opinions and recommendations.

However, beneath the glitz and glamour of the influencer lifestyle lies a dark side that often goes unnoticed. Since the internet and social media gave everyone a voice, the use of these platforms for bad purposes also raises the question about where society is going at a moment when anyone can say anything there.
