Wealth and success is now measured by posts on social media says Actress Yvonne Jegede


Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede has lamented about the current trend of people judging the success and wealth of others by social media posts.

The mother of one took to her Instastories to bare her mind on this issue and revealed that we live in a messed up society.

Yvonne Jegede wrote:

“The Internet has given popularity to opinions that shouldn’t be formed, to behaviours that shouldn’t be emulated, to people that shouldn’t be famous.

The other day I posted something about a car and a new camera phone and I got a comment that got me thinking. Common sense is not so common nowadays.

If you don’t post on social media they assume your life is messed up and that you don’t have anything.

Your wealth/success is measured by what you post on social media these days. We live in a messed up society.”
