12+ People Who Were Caught In A Lie On Social Media

Kasia M 10 Jul 2019

I don't think I have to tell you that social media can be totally deceiving. Some people go through a lot of effort to put their best foot forward when it comes to posting online.

Others, however, may need a lesson in how to either be better liars or just give up on lying altogether. Because when you're caught in a lie on social media it's never pretty.

1. Photo Credit

Facebook

As a budding photographer myself, this really bugs me. Don't take credit for a photo you didn't take yourself. Let's thank the watermark for getting them busted.

It's funny how some people announce on social media that they're doing some drastic lifestyle change to appear more righteous only to get busted by a friend.

Pretending to have grown up poor just to enlist some kind of pity on social media is never okay especially when your mom outs you. Ouch!

Apparently, this girl has 28,000 followers and swears this is not Photoshopped. How are they not dropping like flies after seeing pics like this? It's beyond me.

9. Lame Excuse

I can't believe the lengths some people will go to so they can avoid having dinner with their friends and then they post what they're actually doing.

That time you took some time off from Facebook only to come back and find out everyone has discovered FaceTune and has gone berserk with it.

Well, it's great to hear this guy has been working hard in the gym but wait a minute these aren't real abs. Busted hard here.

I don't understand why people post fake pictures of themselves on the 'gram and then do a real-life interview. Really?

But I guess some things are worth the risk for certain people.
