Social media has become the new “reality”, except it’s fake. We have entered a new era, where everyone is trying to be an influencer, the most wanted job these last few years.
However, many people go by the saying “Fake it till you make it” even though one can spot fake miles away.
r/InstagramReality, a subreddit thread dedicated to this topic, wrote: “Social media is a breeding ground for Facetune and Photoshop. It’s unbelievable how some people get away with it while others don’t!”
Viral Strange has gathered 30 pictures of these influencers that can easily be replaced by the name ‘photo-editing software’.

What do you think of heavy photo editing? Do you think that it’s ok to slightly edit pictures for Instagram, or should there be no edits at all?
