The topic for my thesis and final year project in college is, "Examining the psychological effects of negotiating online and offline identities." The first step in the process was to understand the pervasive nature of social media and how it portrays the ideal life.
To do that I made a case study video and mock Instagram posts. When the QR Code in the Instagram post is scanned, the creation process of the post can be seen. There is omission of 'unappealing' backgrounds and enhancement in many of the situations.
