Welcome to the world of filters, where first impressions are everything. While there are exceptions, social media is still notorious for encouraging and rewarding vanity, which may vary from boosting your ego to causing others (including yourself) to be miserable.

By uploading photographs of influencers who have gone too far with their manipulation, the subreddit “Instagram Reality” is drawing attention to these events.
