We live in an era of choosing your persona and being chosen for the presented self. Thus we define ourselves to the standards of the ideal-social self by collecting aspects of our everyday lives as “someone.”
Like our brains remind only a part of the past, online platform archives the meaningful or supposed-to-be worthy moments we selectively publish. Exaggerations occur at times as we sometimes distort the surrounding environment, the self, or the cognition itself; we also often hide our genuineness to build a facade that suffices certain social positions we desire.
