It’s summer and our social feeds are filled with too good to be true vacation photos, and in all likelihood many of them aren’t true. A new study has found that “fake” vacation photos are on the rise.
Time is reporting, that 33% of men and 26% of women have faked photos to make their vacation seem more lavish and expensive.
Participants admitted to taking a picture in front of a villa that they weren’t renting, posting drinks they weren’t drinking, changing the angle to make it appear they were on a secluded beach rather than in the middle of a crowd, and more.
The study also found as a whole 30% of Americans have self-aggrandizing behavior on social media, and that number rises to 56% amongst millennials.
Have you ever lied in a social media picture? Are you okay with your friends being dishonest on social media?
