It's the 'Gram. An entire generation of lazy kids has turned a social media platform into a successful lifestyle. Where was this when we worked at gas stations and movie theaters.

Most people curate what you see about their lives on social media. This woman obviously had people thinking her relationship was better than it really was. Her new captions show a totally different story behind such sweet pictures of her and her (now ex) boyfriend.
A lot of people love the X-Files, especially now that it's back on TV. Now someone has recreated Dana Scully in miniature for the fans that just can't get enough. She's relentlessly working cases, pausing only to take an occasional selfie and add a filter. The truth is out there, and you just might find it in your Instagram feed.
There's a mysterious bro on Instagram who's also an accomplished chef with over 100 thousand followers. He's known for over the top small plates of junk food and captions written in all caps. The chef known as Jacques LaMerde has made a name for himself as an inside joke in the cooking world.
Until now the true identity of this chef has remained elusive, until it was revealed to be Christine Flynn, a Toronto chef. She appeared as a guest on Top Chef. This reveal may put an end to Jacques LaMerde, but hopefully she's onto bigger, better, just as unhealthy things.

Yesterday model and honorary Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, got a lot of attention on Instagram. One can only assume it was an attempt to compete with her older half sister in the continuing Kardashian effort to post naked and "break the internet". In the tasteful black and white image, Kendall appears to be sunning herself on top of a horse. There's only one problem with this picture, it's not Kendall Jenner, it's a French model named Elisa Meliani.
Anything seem familiar about the pose in this picture? This woman posted the nude picture on her Instagram over a year ago.
South African artist Jaco Haasbroek is out to make sure that you do.
His art project, The Good News, places posters of happy news (often with puns) around the city to brighten people's day.
He told Mashable he started the project after seeing a missing dog sign that said "STOLEN."
"It's quite sad when someone loses a pet," he said. "The idea popped into my head that by simply adding 'Our Hearts' at the bottom of the poster, it would completely change its meaning and turn into something positive."
You can check out more of the project on Haasbroek's Instagram.

Essena O'Neill, from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, had over 574,000 Instagram followers, more than 250,000 subscribers on YouTube and around 60,000 dedicated Snapchat contacts when she decided to give up her life as a 'social media celebrity'.
In her final YouTube video, O'Neil describes why she is quitting social media.
"I put my value in numbers, not real life people, moments or my natural passions of art, writing...Posting on Instagram consumed me," she wrote.
"We are not followers, we are beings of individuality and love. I have never felt so free."
She said she is leaving her Instagram and YouTube accounts up as documentation of her journey. She even started changing Instagram captions to reveal the truth about sponsored posts and highly edited photos.
Instead of using popular social media platforms, O'Neill has set up a website and blog, letsbegamechangers.com, where she will continue to interact with fans and share her content.
Her first challenge to users? Go social media free for one week.
they always come back. I love you NYC 💋they always come back. I love you NYC 💋 #godblesstheworld #michaeljackson #rip miss you as my real only private friend. For you: god, for all hurts and wrongs, please let me forgive, Allah please let me be forgiven, and all forgive themselves. Please and thank you. (Someone I was with the night before several towers fell, it felt like not a curse, but more like a spell.. What we think in America is not always clear, we don't have @peta commercials / you just kill deer....with this being said, I'm a girl with a reputation mislead... Like a diamond in the rough, you, now, for 25 years have seen me on TV and screen.. So i am programmed 🔺to stand tough. Black or white - in life, rather than love we create a fight of an ideal situation of an unexceptional, yet unacceptable future that @TMZ @Eonline @HarveylevinTMZ & #harveyweinstein ..couldn't and wouldn't even care to describe any thought of the people we forget to help when a franchise film comes out and, If money means more than freedom- than stay in California. If helping others is a passion, talk to angelina jolie... If you want to be a brilliant actress, work wth Meryl Streep ...at the end of the day- republican or democrats --- BE HERE NOW @oprah and live with integrity. Or go to sleep. The most beautiful life comes cheap. Stop fighting and using artists for distractions. It's boring... 🙏 #UnitedNations
Either this is performance art, or someone hilarious hopped on her account, or we should all continue to be very worried about her.
Not sure how something conceivably about Sept. 11 turned so quickly into something about Michael Jackson. Not sure why she asks god to help her forgive, but only Allah to let her be forgiven. Not sure if she's mad at Oprah or using her as an example of something good.
