Indonesian photographer Gunarto Song was recently photographing a volcano when he captured a meteor right above it. Thanks to Gunarto’s shooting angle, it looks like the meteor is flying straight into the crater, giving him a once-in-a-lifetime shot that quickly went viral.
That social media is full of fakery is old news. But what fascinates me is just how easy it is to fake your life on Instagram. YouTuber Natalia Taylor recently decided to test it out herself. She “traveled” to the nearest IKEA store and took some photos, even purposely leaving some IKEA price tags in them. She shared them on Instagram, and she managed to prank her followers to believe that she was on a vacation in Bali. Natalia shares more details in her recent video, and it’s a useful reminder that social media isn’t real.
