The staged lifestyles of IG for example are extremely poor reflections of reality. In fact many of these accounts are especiallu repetitive in the exact type and style of photographs and blurbs they have with them. Its almost become a formula, so many selfies, interspersed with x number of lifestyle shots and y number of inspirational quotes. Even the messages in the blurbs are entirely unoriginal. It shocks me how people can fall in like with these 'personalities' when all they are is a series of headshots and platitudes. Many of them unoriginally and blatantly plugging products. Its as if nuanced advertising is no longer necessary because people will suck up literally anything these days and defend the person doing it.
