In the past ten years, we have all noticed (hopefully) the expansion of the vlogging phenomena, a form of content creation that allows “normal” people to reach broad audiences and spread their message through video.
Most vloggers talk about their passions, such as gaming, make-up, and life experiences that are pleasurable and relaxing for the audience. However, they rarely integrate essential issues that impact people’s lives to a greater extent, such as civic themes. Vlogging can lead to change if it’s used in the right way. By teaching their audiences about such topics, followers can learn useful information and live more fulfilling lives.
To transition from content consumers to content creators, young people need guidance. If they just follow, the danger is that they won’t be able to control their time and invest it productively and consciously. If we start by teaching children how to filter content and choose wisely how they spend their time online, we can further direct their content creation behavior.
