15 Things We All Fake On Social Media


Social media is a fickle friend.  You’ll sometimes be obsessed with how many people are following you on Instagram, spend way too much time editing photos and thinking of a clever caption and then the next day, you’ll want nothing to do with it.  The problem is that you can’t trust anything these days.  People edit themselves to show only their best selves and their best moments.  The rest of us are prone to some green envy when we scroll through and see how great everyone else’s lives appear to be.  Here are 15 things we all fake on social media.

1. Appearance

Nobody looks that good all the time.  Nobody gets ready every single day and look perfect always.  It just doesn’t happen.  But, who’s going to take an honest selfie when they look like crap?  That’s right, no one.  So, we take photos when we know we look good and then we edit the crap out of them to make ourselves look even better.


2. Relationships

Some studies say that the more you post about your spouse/boyfriend, the more problems there are in a relationship.  We aren’t sure about that, but we do know that it needs to be documented when our significant other does something nice for us, because, honestly, it doesn’t happen as often as you’d think.
