Singer Aima Baig recently discussed how internet trolls have affected her use of social media in general as well as her posting habits in a new interview with a local digital magazine.
She also discussed the lesson she has taken away from the experience.
The singer admitted, “I don’t go on social media that much I don’t post that much anymore [either], and I don’t read comments anymore.”
It also has to do with the fact that celebrities are more accustomed to receiving trolls and vitriol on social media, so the good feedback or compliments frequently come as a surprise, according to Baig.
Looking for the bad comments only.
The performer of “Baazi” remarked, “Recently I did this cover and I was going through the YouTube comments; surprisingly, or rather fortunately, all those comments were really sweet, and I was looking for the bad comments only.”
We are so accustomed to negative comments at this point that I briefly paused and thought, “What about all the positive ones?”
Therefore, instead of being impacted by one negative comment as I used to, why not concentrate on all of them?
On the work front, Baig’s last single ‘Funkari’ with Shiraz Uppal and Adnan Qazi, was a major hit and garnered more than 2 million views on the video platform YouTube.
The celebrity mentioned that earlier she used to get affected by all the hate and would cry alone in her room, but not anymore, as she has learnt to live with it. “This is my biggest lesson that you don’t have to share everything on social media,” she concluded.
