As a nation of young people raised on social media and the spotlight surrounding its many “influencers”, it’s no wonder that social celebs have made household names for themselves. They’re trusted. And they know it. So it’s no wonder that social media celebs have come under fire over the past few weeks because of some shady ad endorsements.
The study assistance service, EduBirdie allows students to buy essays – if this isn’t ringing warning bells, it should be. Although they claim the service isn’t plagiarism because essays are written to order, it’s pretty damn unethical. The service has been investing (undoubtedly) thousands in advertising to get into the public eye, and did this by having its services endorsed by some YouTuber household names. These included Adam Saleh and JMX, who have millions of subscribers between them.
The two have, along with others who were paid to endorse the service, now removed their sponsored content, but not before the message reached millions of young people.
Yeah, we know that writing essays is a bit crap. Honestly, for those of us (probably most of us) who like to procrastinate a little, and avoid essays like the plague when the sun’s shining temptingly through the window, they’re become the weight of the world on your shoulders. But that doesn’t mean you should try to sneak your way around doing them.
It’s not fair on you, because you deserve better than a half-arsed, carbon copy essay they’ll pump out for you. It’s not fair on everyone else in your class, who are slaving away to get through the work. And trust us, you’ll get caught. Honestly, the consequences of that aren’t worth even considering. Ditch any ideas you might have on essay writing or “proofreading” services – it’s all cheating and the short-term gain will mean long-term pain. In moments of essay desperation we’d all love the idea of a get out of jail free card, but there are better options.
Struggling? Talk to your teachers, lecturers or tutors as soon as you notice a problem. That way, it won’t snowball into a huge last minute panic. For other study tips and help, have a look here for Push’s best advice on beating the essay blues. We’ve got your back.
