The meme is delightful but also painfully true because it highlights the very nature of social media. We put out a specific image of ourselves tailored to its respective audience: potential employers, families, friends, and dates. Each image is crafted to send a specific message: “Hire me!”, “my life is fabulous!”, “slide into my DMs!”. It’s rare that you get a meme that actually makes you think about the ways in which we represent ourselves to the outside world.
Oh, and there are dog memes of course because obviously.
