Many young people nowadays dream of becoming social media influencers. But is it a good career choice?

Although we see the beautiful lifestyles of influencers on social media, they actually receive unequal pay because of their gender, color, disability, or mental health issues. It’s also common for them to choose their own price. As a result, they end up losing confidence in their abilities and working for free. They aren’t safe from online bullying, either. They often receive harsh comments about their appearance, the things they post or don’t post, and their work as influencers. This could lead to issues like eating disorders, depression, and anxiety, among other issues with mental and physical health.

Being a social media influencer attracts many people. But it’s important to know its dark side through tighter employment rules.
