Yesterday, we were treated to a video that highlights how differently we act in real life VS on our phones.
Anti-bullying charity Ditch the Label has a similar video, but it points out the most common ‘lies’ and false representations that people share on social media just to get ‘likes’.
Examples include made up selfies with the hashtags #IWokeUpLikeThis and #effortless, as well as fake #fitspo and #relationshipgoals images.
Are you guilty of any of these “Insta Lies”?
If you’re guilty of living an Insta Lie or know somebody that is, then this video is most certainly for you. We’re partnering up with boohoo.com to call out some of the funniest and most common Insta Lie’s posted on social media.
Insta Lie (verb): an intentionally false representation of real life on social media. Examples include:
1.) Tagging an edited and made-up selfie with #IWokeUpLikeThis;
2.) Taking a million selfies before deciding on just one to post as #Effortless ?;
3.) Going all the way to Starbucks, buying a coffee and opening up your Macbook – taking a photo of your #WorkSpace, closing your Macbook and then going back home;
4.) Using filters to edit your travel photos – making them literally look #Unreal.
