Social media influencers

I had never heard of them until just now watching BBC Click program.

If you want to see how our world is changing just google "social media influencers" and see how kids in their bedrooms are making millions. It's astounding and legal?

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Not sad if you are one of the influencers making a fortune!

I Dont think kids watch TV and stuff much these days, its an online social media world now for them hence its the platform of choice for companies targeting the young.

I suppose it depends on who or what the kids are following. I had a school teacher who had a great influence on my life and I only saw him once a week for a term or two. His political leanings, I now know, were not middle of the road. The one thing I am glad he taught me was to question everything before accepting it which meant that I did question what he said and we had some amazing class discussions. My maths, however, could do with some work

Except as Click found out they were promoting fake goods and profiting greatly.

As in all walks of life there are some who will take advantage, itís a changing world that some of us old duffers donít fully understand, tarring them all as fake goods providers is an unfair reflection on the majority.
