If a pic of your crush, class friend, or one of the influencer divas looks too good to be true… you do the math. Because if there’s anything we know about pic-perfect shots on social media by now, it’s that a huge number of them are totally fake.

And as long as there are serial Photoshop offenders out there, the Instagram Reality subreddit will continue exposing their malicious deeds. Trust me, people out there are never running short of inspiration to face-tunefy and beautify their looks.

Below is the fresh batch of IG absurdity that must be seen to be believed. More eye-rub inducing snaps from Instagram vs. Reality can be found here, here, and here.

Previously, Bored Panda reached out to the redditor Cluelessnumber7, who’s the moderator of the r/InstagramReality community. The moderator explained the adverse effects all the heavily edited images have on people.

First, it sets unrealistic expectations that influencers purport to their easily impressionable audiences. “The amazingly smooth skin, suddenly common almond-shaped eyes, pouty lips, sharp jawlines, slim hourglass shapes, and so on," they commented.

Meanwhile, the viewers have no idea how long it took to pick the outfit, hunt down the perfect lighting, and many other little details that come before face-tuning every picture-perfect Insta look. Without discussing the use of editing apps such as Photoshop and Facetune, “there is now a countless amount of people comparing themselves to (and perhaps spending money to look like) a person who doesn’t exist," Cluelessnumber7 told us.

The second problem that hasn’t been addressed enough is the insecurities of the influencers who feel an urge to edit their pictures. “They’ve been editing their photos for so long it could mean losing the validation from their followers, losing followers, and maybe losing sponsors if they came clean.”

As huge crowds of followers become familiar with your fictional, yet perfect look, it may be impossible to speak out about all the editing that goes into creating their brand. “So, they would rather enjoy the false fame than risk losing it over integrity," the moderator concluded.
