Avoid Falling into the TikTok Trap – Archbishop Palmer-Buckle<span class="wtr-time-wrap after-title"><span class="wtr-time-number">1</span> min read</span>

Most Reverend Charles Gabriel Palmer-Buckle, the Archbishop of Cape Coast, has advised young people to be cautious of their social media consumption, particularly on platforms like TikTok, urging them to utilize their time more productively.

Expressing concern over the growing trend of youth addiction to social media, he emphasized the importance of avoiding frivolous online activities that contribute to idleness and lack of productivity.

Addressing thousands of young attendees at the Cape Coast Archdiocesan Youth Rally of the Roman Catholic Church in Assin Fosu, the Archbishop emphasized the need for youths to use social media as a tool for learning new skills and acquiring valuable information, rather than merely following superficial trends.

The four-day rally, which brought together approximately 2,000 youths from various regions, featured prayer sessions and social activities aimed at fostering spiritual growth and community engagement.

During the event’s opening ceremony, Deputy Minister of Education and Member of Parliament for Assin South, Reverend John Ntim Fordjour, encouraged the youth to fulfill their responsibilities to both the church and the nation.

He emphasized the significance of every individual’s talents and urged young people to create their own opportunities, rather than assuming that success can only be achieved abroad.
