Have you ever noticed that virtually everyone on Facebook leads a totally awesome life? Between that new promotion at work, completing a 26-mile marathon, having dinner out on the town with the most amazing person in the world or ditching...

I have some friends with facebook accounts using 'fake credentials' on facebook so the article is not far-fetched.
Have you ever noticed that virtually everyone on Facebook leads a totally awesome life? Between that new promotion at work, completing a 26-mile marathon, having dinner out on the town with the most amazing person in the world or ditching a dead-end job, it can seem at times that everyone lives a fairy tale life.

Can't say I had too many people in my feed who were competing for Most Interesting Man in the World, before I iced my account. It was mostly political commentary and fluff (xkcd, youtube links, etc.). It would appear that the Golden Rule still applies: don't believe everything you see or read on the Internet.

Thanks for this news breaking story...."REALLY"..I haven't looked at a digital photo or video in 15-20 years and not thought might be fake.
With the current state of digital photo and video editing software almost anyone can "fake It", but I suppose you guys never heard of Photoshop.

Congratulations for commenting as if, the entire story was about Photoshop capabilities! I suppose you used Photoshop to post your comment as well.

I went fishing today and caught a dozen massive snapper, here is a photo of one really close to the camera.

Played golf today and got a hole in one, here is a photo of the score card I didn’t manipulate.

So on and so forth…

People were faking it or embellishing stories long before Facebook came along, it’s just easier to spam everyone with your BS now ;)

Personally I have never had a Facebook account ... am I missing out? :)

The clip is very funny/depressing.
