Social media can be a wonderful place for people to open up, be their true selves and connect with people all over the world. However, it can also be a place of deception.

In the online world, now more than ever, people are able to curate and edit their lives meticulously, particularly when it comes to appearance. With filters and face-editing apps, it’s possible to make yourself look like an entirely different person.

One model and influencer, Nicole Sahebi, recently showcased just how shocking the before and afters of filters can be, exposing the “fake” side of social media.
