How A Single Photo On Social Media Can Derail A Person’s Entire Career

Social media can be one of the most beautiful things in the world and also one of the most dangerous things in the world all at the same time. It has the power to bring about revolutions while building a new star or destroying someone’s entire career. It has the ability to make everyone and anyone famous. Some get famous by doing silly things, while others have a natural talent for something, and in some cases, it just happens by accident. For example, a 17 year old high school pole vaulter from California by the name of Allison Stokke got famous because of her talent and by accident. She knew she was a great athlete, but she would’ve never thought that her rise to fame wouldn’t be because of her exceptional skills but because of a photograph of her posted on social media.
