If you are fond of social networks you probably already know that not everything you see ah is real.
But sometimes it's very easy to be fooled.
The American influencer Natalia Taylor made a powerful demonstration that teaches us not to believe everything we see in
Taylor teased his followers to think he was on vacation in Bali when, in fact, he has never traveled to Indonesia.
In fact, he was at a local Ikea store.
Natalia, who has hundreds of thousands of followers in
, I published a series of photographs that seemed to show a hotel room and were labeled as if I were on the Indonesian island of Bali.
His followers posted comments and even shared his personal travel experiences, and suggested destinations that the influencer should visit.
However, what the followers did not know is that she never really left the United States and the photographs were taken in rooms of the Ikea furniture store.
Taylor explained in a video that I decided to fool his Instagram followers "to see if they think I'm really on vacation."
Natalia is not the only influencer who has teased her followers.
Vloguero George Mason also did it.
Last year, Mason, 21, used his photographic editing skills so that his followers thought he was on vacation traveling for eight days across five European countries.
In the end, he revealed the hoax in a YouTube video titled: "Fing I was on vacation for a whole week."
I indicated that it was very worrying to see how easy it was for people to believe that they were really traveling.
In this top photo on the right side Mason pretends he is in Amsterdam, Holland.
When in fact it is in the United Kingdom, as shown on the left side.
The vlogger Gabbie Hanna managed to convince her followers that she had gone to the popular Coachella music festival in California.
But Hanna didn't even leave Los Angeles.
Publish a photo in which it appears against a background of the valley in the Colorado desert that she herself included in the image with Photoshop.
And then he said he had never been labeled and republished as much as with the fake Coachella publication.
After he revealed that the photo was not true, he said that "the appearance and appearances are important in terms of promoting brands and your social presence … the only thing is that you should know that things are not always as they seem ".
Byron Denton, 19, wanted to see how easy it will be to fake a luxury lifestyle.
All he needed was to do some photo editing tricks to make it look like he was traveling in luxury, when he was actually sitting on a couch at home.
Denton received thousands of likes in his publications and talked about people's obsession with celebrities.
Carolyn, also known as
Slow Traveler, regularly posts on Instagram about his life and has his own blog.
But one day he wanted to pretend he was at Disneyland in Paris to see what reaction he gets.
First he photographed himself in the garden of his house with a hat and sandals and then manipulated the image to place a background of the famous amusement park.
"Here I am in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. It's my crazy and self-indulgent birthday gift number 22 for myself," he wrote on Instagram.
"Tomorrow be back home and be as if this had never happened!"
And what Stritch's followers didn't know is that it really hadn't happened. The influencer had been at his home all the time in the United Kingdom.
