Zayn Malik: Social Media Breeds Followers NOT Leaders
We have to agree with the former One Direction singer, Zayn Malik, who believes that the ‘ridiculousness’ of social media is a breeding ground of followers.
What we’ve learned is social media followers are conformed to whatever is said on the internet, which has ruin the new generation. This is why we’re agreeing with Zayn Malik on social media is a platform that breeds followers rather than leaders. Read on to see what he is saying…
Zayn Malik, 24, might have a vast following on platforms such as Twitter and Instagram, but the star isn’t a prolific user of either website.
Facebook has become a bragging site to let all your friends and people who don’t know you watch and see your every move. Twitter has become a place for people to be racist, prejudice and hate on others. Instagram is still somewhat decent, but it’s breeding ground for no talents to become instagram models, men to promote their bodies and more.
Zayn Malik had this to say to VMAN magazine:
“It’s become ridiculous to me. Even angles of pictures can’t be taken a certain way because that’s not the cool way to take an angle of a picture. Everyone’s personal opinions and what they believe in, how can you amalgamate all of that into one thing and expect that not to create a problem for people’s minds?”
“That’s my personal opinion, that it’s not really that developing for us as people. That for me is the main reason why I don’t believe in social media: because I believe it breeds sheep and not lions.”
On top of that Zayn has become a bit introverted since he hasn’t “properly showed his face” in public for a year.
“Personally I am not a very outgoing, like, social person. Like, in terms of big groups of people; it’s been a year since I’ve properly shown my face. I always feel like I’m trying to work through whatever certain issues are around certain subjects. For me personally, I think it comes from a place of not ever wanting to come across as an over-arrogant person or a person that takes themselves too seriously. I’m not always trying to be pretentious or say something that I think is going to change the world. I feel like I’m one voice among millions.”
