How much vlogging is too much vlogging?
Notably, India right now has the second highest number of Internet users after China which means there is a wide scope to use the opportunity. A lot of us consume content on Youtube.

Be it talking about their everyday life, speaking on important issues or even addressing some fan questions, celebrities today like to connect with their fans in a more personalized way. Honestly, there is no harm in doing that and we all love to know more about our favourite celebs. But how fair is it to create a vlog on personal moments?
Creating a vlog on pregnancy or death is something that crosses a particular boundary. Yes, it’s good to stay connected with your favourite personalities but at what cost? Is it worth watching a pregnancy or a death vlog? Do you remember when Sambhvana Seth was trolled for creating a vlog during Sidharth Shukla’s last rites? She was slammed by many for it.
Later, she clarified that she didn’t leak any picture but was it fair? It was insensitive, wasn’t it? Why do we even have to carry cameras on such occasions? And when we watch such content closely we get impacted a lot more than we think.
Not only this, people these days also create vlogs on pregnancies. Becoming parents is such a beautiful moment. Instead of enjoying the process, a lot of people film it. Well, it’s fine to share good news with your virtual family but how justified is it to shoot a video on labour pain? Recently, a video of a celebrity couple too went viral for shooting labour pain video, and it was then used by many to make money.
But Hadd to tab ho gaye, when some YouTubers went to an extent to shoot their Suhagrat Vlog. Obviously, they did not shoot the entire night but putting such clickbait thumbnails, sharing your highly personal moments which is meant to be kept private, all comes under the umbrella of cringe. Maybe you are not shooting the Suhagraat but your idea was to milk views over it, and use your spouse as an eye-candy for many crosses boundaries.
What experts suggest?
A lot of content is flooding on various social media platforms and just because it is a game of numbers, a lot of good content goes unnoticed. People are filming labour pains and even deaths to make money. This also reveals the content consuming behaviour of Indians. A lot of users on Quora said that it is the responsibility of creator and consumer both to promote good content but most of us fail. According to a report, if you see most of the YouTubers in India are either kids/teenagers or young adults. The audiences often confuse cringe with comedy. Apart from it, a lot of us also enjoy voyeurism. We love peeking into each other’s life.
