What are your thoughts on people who use a lot of filters?

Asked by honeybun35 (995points) 1 month ago

I see lots of filters being used on social media and was wondering if it’s a good idea for me to use. Some people that’s all they ever use. Is there a good purpose in this?

I would assume they are vain or insecure or both. I guess people should do what makes them happy, although I do question if it does. I work with children, and there are just way too many way we are messaging to kids that they are not enough, so I would not say this is harmless.

Virtually all celebrity photos are filtered and adjusted. It is not unusual.

It’s fine. It’s all fake and performative anyway, so have at. Anyone who thinks what they see of a person on social media is an accurate representation of them is a fool, and if you actually care about the BS fake clout game, you are at a tactical disadvantage without the filters.

What kind of filters?

To me it tells me they are not happy with their natural looks. All the brows, hair, eyelash extensions, spray tans, etc..is only pretty packaging for high-maintenance people who are insecure. It’s kind of a joke with a sad punchline if used all the time. A l9t of guys consider girls who use filters as catfishing.

Maybe it’s like a new type of makeup?
People have fake hair, fake eyes, lips, teeth, breasts, butts, or whatever. I could see those same people using their computers to augment their appearance. That would be a logical next step, or evolution of
people who already use make up.

OR. It’s a 11 year old kid, in Singapore, trying to get your money….

I have a granddaughter who uses some sort of program to “enhance” herself. The photos don’t even look like her. But that’s what I get. I’m not a fan. I’d rather see her as she really looks!
