Are You Living an Insta Lie? Social Media Vs. Reality

217596 ratings | 7761541 views
If you're guilty of living an Insta Lie or know somebody that is, then this video is most certainly for you. We're partnering up with boohoo.com to call out some of the funniest and most common Insta Lie's posted on social media. Insta Lie (verb): an intentionally false representation of real life on social media. Examples include: 1.) Tagging an edited and made-up selfie with #IWokeUpLikeThis; 2.) Taking a million selfies before deciding on just one to post as #Effortless 😕; 3.) Going all the way to Starbucks, buying a coffee and opening up your Macbook - taking a photo of your #WorkSpace, closing your Macbook and then going back home; 4.) Using filters to edit your travel photos - making them literally look #Unreal.

This is why beside Facebook I don't use any other social media. It has dumbed down society. I mean how pathetic are you to post fake pics?

Sadly many don’t use social media for the positive aspect - connecting w/ far away family & friends. It’s nice I can post or talk about what’s going on to my relatives or far away siblings or friends and not have to send things individually or else that would take a lot of time that I just don’t have enough of. And also be able to see what’s going on with them and choose to make conversation on it if I want to. Using social media just for attention and to make up some life is using it for the wrong reasons and can only hurt you in the end. Use it for yourself because that’s the main reason and then use it for connecting with people who matter. I don’t follow trends and “trendy people” a lot of that is meant for Twitter (which I don’t use) anyway. If people would seek a more positive reason for it and have enough confidence to not compare their life to everyone else’s they would enjoy it more and if you can’t do that then yeah, don’t use it. It hurts my brain imagining being that fake or creating a scene just for a picture or likes, if you do that please get help.

I closed facebook and instagram 2 years and don't miss it at all! I now enjoy life more and spend more time with my love ones. Social media is just a big lie created to cause anxiety and depression specially on The youth who make other peoples opinion of themselves a priority in their lives.

I think we all want to feel famous and loved even just for a moment. Though what's the point if you feel sad after turning off the screen ?

I'm at my boat watching people visiting relatives on a yacht.  Instead of enjoying themselves & living in the moment they chose to spend half their day documenting the experiences (a boat, water fowl, trees, etc.) and uploading it to people who don't really give a f-ck.  What a hollow existence!

The social media sites I'm on are just for me to see memes and animal videos (and maybe 1 kpop group or 2)...I find it hard to trust these very happy people behind the screens these days😅

Social media are normally the best parts of someones life. If you honestly think it's not then that's your problem. Obviously there is lying and just showing the best bits. Two very different things.
Do people actually behave like this?

Wow anyone will do anything for some stupid heart from people they hardly or dont know. I am soooooooo happy I am free of social media. Now I live happier more confident and it's so annoying to see everyone doing the same thing. Such fake people we are around. That's why I'm introvert.

There are so many comments which are against Instagram and who hasn't it? I haven't had Instagram anymore and my life goes on. Now I am watching "just" videos at YouTube. Who else? Sorry for my bad English😅

I have Instagram but I tend to take pics of when I've been on holiday or spending time with family. Taking a picture just so you can lie to make yourself look interesting is just ridiculous. Suppose everyone's different

Asocial media.
oohh shut up, now you have used youtube to post this instead of spending time with your friends or family, and by doing so we are still using Youtube to watch this video, these are things we all do! So don't be fake moralists
Envy obviously keep us trapped into this fake social media life. We see someone's nice picture, so we post a nice picture of our own to trigger envy in others and make us feel better. Stop it and pray the Rosary.

Some of the happiest people you see on Instagram, are the saddest people in reality. And that my friend, is the reality.

I ve been wondering all my life what is so interesting on the internet that keeps people glued to the screens of their smartphones. It barely takes a minute to do necessary things like checking the email, answer some messages Than what ? Social media sites have become some kind of addiction. That's for sure.

This reminds me of the time when i was in santorini. There were 2 girls. Its was like 12 degrees out but both of them had short dresses on and they took pictures of each other with big smiles on. Soon as the "shooting was done" they looked mean and talked about how cold it is.

This video is just great. Shows just the reality. It just happens every day, going with friends or with my partner, sometimes I'd like to delete those accounts from everyone and so everyone would focus on the person they have in front of them. Live the present and the moment, instead of having a double life. It's like they are obsessed and their instant gratification of having a few likes it's more powerful than living the present life without worrying what u are showing online. Sad.

I only use IG but really that SHIT is now full of bots, fake likes and followers, really. I built my profile through hard work and inviting people to follow me, I have 824 followers and 1411 nice posts yet people with some 70 trash posts have 14k followers and each pic with 100+ likes, yet they follow and unfollow 13 people each hour, of course they use bots. The worst shit is that brands believe this and they sponsor the bots. So if you want followers or likes don't work just buy them. Facebook let tjis happen because of the money. Is all a FAKE.
Amazing video

How sad. Now we live among lies and truth. The problem is we do not know which is which. I dislike social media actually so I have ditched them. Only watching YT for interesting video like this. Ppl are addicted to posting and liking other ppl's posting and if they did not get many likes they would feel sad. How irony. How many real sincere friends do you really have online? We need to stop being obsessive to social media and gadgets. Many ppl are looking down on their phones instead of observing their surroundings.

The last so many years I have learned so much. How what we see in others is not always reality. It's quite sad. Recently I was talking to someone, and they told me how things were with their ex marriage. How hard things were, and how their ex spouse treated them, and how it affected their well being. But yet if you were to look back at posts or pics, and comments that were posted during that time...its sad to see a cover up of reality was put in place for the world to see. Or to please the other. Most likely in person at family gatherings as well. This person is now with a very patient and stable person in a relationship that fits this person perfectly. Their overall wellbeing has improved. Ever since my dad passed away almost 5 years ago, I look through every "happy" person and wonder what their real life is. I myself never told much about my private life with my ex when we were together...but I never faked happiness with him during the time I wasn't happy. I just never put out to the world what wasn't truth. Never do what you don't feel ..or never say what you don't mean. The same could be being done to you. And most never know. So many people have to be careful around their spouses. If you can't be yourself...you are not with the right person. That goes both ways.

Wow..i don't do any of these things. I just take a picture in my bedroom before i leave to go somewhere to remember the day or because my outfit/hair looked good that day. Sometimes at restaurants i'll take a picture of my food if it looks REALLY GOOD because i'm impressed of the presentation. NEVER UPLOADED JUST FOR LIKES OR ORGANIZED MY ROOM/ENVIRONMENT FOR A PICTURE. LIVE YOUR LIFE LIKE IT IS..DON'T FAKE IT.

This is why I don’t even use much social media. I mainly use YouTube for entertainment and such and that’s pretty much it. I actually interact with friends and others. I don’t like following them on social media because it’s too much performative interacting.

Thank you so much for this I needed a reminder that the perfect like reality we all enjoy to portray ourselves on social media isn't always what it seems. I have recently been in such a jealous, insecure, and unhealthy mood for believing every video and picture I see on social media, and I try to perfect at this art to gain happiness. This gave me a reminder that we dont live in this perfect world so I should be happy with the life I have. This gave me a more clear mind. Thank you
