More than ever, we live in a fake famous society. People’s worth is based on their social media following whether it’s LIKES on Instagram or CONNECTIONS Twitter, both of which can be bought. If you have enough money you can stack the deck and make it appear that you are well loved and liked.
What is real being presented to you? They can produce videos in seconds with a computer algorithm that cater to your wants and needs
In a new HBO documentary Fake Famous follows technology journalist Nick Bilton as he turns three 20-somethings with small social media followings into Instagram influencers.
“When you look on Instagram, there are over 140 million people who have over 100,000 followers,” Bilton told The Post. “How is it that the entire population of Russia can be perceived as famous? It’s not possible.” (NY POST)
Those shiny photos of influencers hanging at a day spa or sitting on a private jet are fake shots on a budget. Buy a fake private jet studio for $50 an hour along with 100k instagram followers and you’re ready for business.

Me, being pretty sad and isolated at the time, made up a bunch of parallels between my hopelessness and the doomed life of flying fish, aka, “exocoetidae” shares Norii.

Rihanna has set off a firestorm with a tweet that called for the support of Indian farmers. We won’t delve into the full specifics here, but farmers in India have been protesting against a new law that could impact the pricing of agricultural produce.
Could India ban and censor Rihanna? The nation could if Rihanna continues to interject herself in foreign affairs.
Soon after Rihanna’s tweet ministers, Bollywood stars and cricketers warned Rihanna not to meddle in their affairs and that she should stay focused on peddling “hate” and “divineness” in America.

“Hey this is Mike and Jason and we’re from Brooklyn. We make pop music about Mike’s life with synths and stuff. We like it, hopefully you will too, and if you don’t, that’s cool. We’ll probably make more anyway” shares the duo.
