Blue Whale Game
The Blue Whale game or Blue Whale Challenge is a trending game at the moment. The concept of this game goes like this. A group of administrators gives a task to complete on a daily basis. The duration of the game is 50 days. The final task of the game is to commit suicide. After the completion of every task, the participant must send photos.
The initial few tasks include certain genres of music, waking up at odd, watching a horror film and so on. This gets intensive when the task is to carve out shapes on their own skin. Isn’t this crazy? This further leads to self- mutilation and finally suicide.
Still, we aren’t able to figure out how one falls into the pit of this game. Sources say it may be by installing an app on their smartphone or may be through social media like Instagram or Facebook. The administrators create interest by getting in touch with the participants. Some common hashtags include, #bluewhalechallenge, #curatorfindme, #i_am_whale. These are signals for anonymous curators.
There is no proven confirmation of the existence of this game. Some have even come forward and said that their loved ones are performing such unusual tasks from the personal accounts of their family or friends. There are sources suggesting that this game has evolved in Russia. According to the overall survey, 130 deaths have been found with two people being arrested.
Be Aware of this Game
To create awareness about this issue among kids, Europe and America have taken initiative by advising parents to watch out their kids more carefully. They are cautioned to frequently check what their children share on social media. Hope kids really become aware that such games are just a diversion that would leave their lives in danger.
