You have to show cause for your existence in this age by leaving gushing parental footprints online. You have to fulfil your purpose on earth by showing how you participated in the procreation process and contributed to the longevity of mankind. So raising a child on social media is the closest you can come because raising a child on social media isn’t about how good you are at being a parent, but rather how good you can be at successfully selling this impression to a large gallery. – Jackson Biko, blogger at bikozulu.co.ke
Kenyan lifestyle blogger Bikozulu once wrote a piece titled: “#How to be a Social Media Mom”. Biko’s article covers some of the “irritating” things adults do on social media, especially parents. These include posting ultra-sound images, maternity photo shoots, attention-seeking status updates that tend to border on over-sharing. Once the babies are born, family and relatives will literally post millions of photos and videos of these kids on social media.
