Social media connects people. You can learn things worldwide with just a few clicks and swaps, no matter where you are. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, even YouTube and TikTok have become daily essentials. With forever developing technology and these platforms, it’s easier to feel closer to loved ones.The number of miles between you and them is just a digit now.
But over time, people have highly transposed the purpose of social media. It has become a mere tool to gain fame. And, people hide their true selves behind fake edits.
After photo editing tools gained popularity, it was easier for people to transform from one person to another without giving it away completely. Photoshop and filters are indispensable for some people when posting regular content to their accounts. It’s the new normal.
Have you never wondered how all these famous celebs and influencers keep up their pristine beauty? Their beauty stays the same or sometimes looks like they keep getting younger as years pass by. You will find how they – may be not everyone, but most –keep this façade going on from the following photos. This TikTok user practically removes all these fake masks the majority of the world’s population wear.
Meet Holly Cockerill, a distinguished character on TikTok. She’s a makeup artist in the United Kingdom. Recently, she has taken the initiative to reveal how corrupted social media is regarding fake edited photos. She posted several chapters of TikTok videos under the title “Instagram Vs Reality” with several edited and unedited pictures of her own.
“Social media is fake. Don’t be fooled,” she captioned. Further, she clarifies that she never uses these edits on her photos. Take a look at these photos yourself. You might even be able to think of some people who are “Fake Socials.”
The difference is as clear as day. The person in the edited version does not represent the natural person at all. Keep scrolling, and be sure to close your hanging mouth at the end! Share this post, so every fake person sees this.
