Youth on Role Models

“Role Model”- not what you think it means. It has been beaten with a stick and chased out of the youth sub-culture. Where has all the power gone which the icons carried with them? Well, it’s the YOUTH THEMSELVES. They’re the emperors now.

When together, the youth hold the power to create, choose and change their icons. Digital Socialites mark a revolutionary shift into the way idols are perceived which is why today there is no perfect idol but there is a “perfect youth”. Instead, every idol has one exceptional quality that the youth adopts to make themselves a better package. Youth prefers adopting qualities than copying. The difference is that while adopting means taking and exception feature from an idol and blending it with one’s own personality.
