30 Instagram Photos Compared To Reality Showing How Far They Are From Being Perfect

Published 5 years ago

Everything looks perfect on social media: the food, the hair, the makeup, and even nature! But if everything is so perfect, then why don’t I look like a Calvin Klein model and my reheated 2-day-old Chinese takeaway doesn’t look like a five-star Michelin meal?

The reality is that most of the “perfect” stuff we see on social media is altered in one way or another. Good lighting, the right angle and a little photoshopping can go a long way in turning a plain photo into one that will gather hundreds of thousands of likes on Instagram. And remember that many celebrities have whole teams whose only job is to make them look flawless on social media. So cut yourself some slack and check out the “perfect” Instagram photos compared to reality in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
