I’m not a liar, but Facebook is.

Such a good article from March 2015 about how things we see online aren’t always how they seem and how pictures might look great but the person could be going through problems .

“I wasn’t trying to be something I wasn’t when I posted these pictures to Facebook. But because you and I put up our very best moments on social media to show our friends, family, and acquaintances, it paints a picture about our lives that just isn’t true.”

“Life is not 1 dimensional. There are always things happening simultaneously in our lives and none of the pictures we post on social media can adequately portray that. I think we have to be careful about assumptions we make when we look at pictures and status updates.”
