I heard about this Instagram account a while back and passed through it then. I really did not see the point of it and wasn’t interested at all. I mean who cares how you take your “selfies” and what horoscope you are. However it’s their life at the end.
However, we received an email this morning about how this was all made up and it is created to make fun of people. So I went and checked back again on the account. Personally I don’t think the owner of SelfieKW did this on purpose as his profile is full of selfies of himself. I guess he just wanted to make something out of selfies. Plus the people who submitted their selfies did it with their own will. No one forced them and no pics were taken from accounts without permission. They submitted it, they should take what is coming to them.
However, I have to point out that cyber bullying here. As bullying is not considered an issue in Kuwait and it’s only called “child’s play”. We need to understand that we live in a society where people tend to talk. However our talk can be considered very harsh at points that could lead to ruining some lives due to traditions and the culture its self.
A I noticed most of the people on SelfieKw are kids. Yes I consider them kids. When those kids are exposed to harsh comments that could lead to things we really don’t want to see. We have heard many news of teenage suicide due to cyber bullying. It’s not really a joke.
We really have the ability to create some really stupid trends. Whether these trends are accepted or not, people tend to do things because they think its the “in” thing without taking in consideration the circumstances. This is just a friendly advice, sending your name, date of birth, accounts, etc can lead to things you really don’t want. You have your own Instagram account that you control, why have it in public where people might attack you for nothing?
