We are using social media as a platform to portray a life that we are only partly living. We want to show off to people, we want people to see how much fun we’re having and we even sometimes take pride and pleasure in flaunting riches.
We are now using social media to adopt personalities that our closest friends and family know isn’t really us. We use it as a means to stand out from the crowd when we are really just as common as the person standing next to us.
Have we become fake?
