Essena O’Neill is an 18-year-old Australian teen who amassed half a million followers on Instagram, 200,000 followers on YouTube and Tumblr, 60,000 on Snapchat, sharing seflies, all of these accounts have now been deactivated. She has decided she is done with social media. She deleted 2000 photos, renamed her account to “Social Media Is Not Real Life.”

She has also changed captions on some existing photos to reveal the truth behind the perfect image.

Who agrees? Maybe it is time for someone to create a social sharing platform not based on validation in views, followers and likes but instead shared for real value and love.
