The society is concerned about the negative influence of social networks on the youth.

The first category is trying to fit into the chain of ridiculous situations and the second category is actually the one which is creating the chaos because boredom is not allowed.

Unfortunately, the family cell is destroyed and that is the base of chaotic social schemas we are witnessing nowadays.

For example, while some of these orgies are exclusive only to HIV carriers, others ‘offer blue tablets’ that are supposed to prevent the contraction of the virus.If you make it, you will be a living legend and a social media hero.If you do not make it…then, you will be an urban legend of stupidity.The Spanish teenagers are not alone on the road of self-destruction.
