IGF 2019 Pre-Event #28 Get-Quick-Rich Internet is ruining youth career

Knowledge Cafe


In this session, I want to raise my concerns about the career opportunities which are provided to the youth and Internet user by self-pro-claimed coaches or gurus. Many advertisements and articles can be seen on the Internet which tells a fake story about lucrative career options like Domain Name Investment, Money Minting Blogging, Affiliate Marketing etc. They show these opportunities as quick-rich program and fake proof of income, do false claims, they show their lavish lifestyle as result of the career they have chosen and to teach those secret tips they sell online courses and e-books. Most of the time that self-pro-claimed guru or coach tells you the black and grey hat tactics to fool search engines, affiliate programs and they tell you tricks and tools to generate fake traffic and fool ad networks. In young age they are learning unethical and immoral ways of earning. Our youth and new internet users are adversely impacted and ruining their career by getting nothing and specially citizens of third world countries are affected. I will share some real life examples and facts in this session. In the last I will ask community support and invite collaborate to aware our youth and new Internet users as well.
