Teen Faked Being Rich On Instagram And Is Surprised By How Easy It Is

It makes me wonder how many people out there are doing this too?

In a world where social media dominates our lives, we are given greater insight into the lives of complete strangers. They often seem infinitely more interesting than our own as we see them partying on yachts in the Bahamas or taking a private jet to the Maldives.

Getting rich requires years of dedication and hard work but faking your wealthy status is perhaps much more enjoyable and faster? Well that’s exactly what Byron Denton did. The 19-year-old fooled his followers into thinking he was a wealthy influencer by using Photoshop. He was shocked by how easy it was to deceive everyone.

It seems that faking body shapes by cinching the waist and expanding the bust and hips are not enough anymore. Now, people on the internet are also faking their lives.

The London-based vlogger has admitted to creating fake images to prove that you can do just about anything on social media and have people believe you’re living a grand life. Thanks to the magic of Photoshop, Byron deceived his followers pretending he was rich by posting manipulated photos of him shopping at high-end stores like Louis Vuitton and kicking back on a private jet.

Byron was inspired to conduct a social experiment to see how easy it would be to fake a flashy influencer lifestyle to his followers and how they would respond.

As it turns out, the experiment’s results revealed a lot. Not only were people convinced, the engagement on his page skyrocketed and all it took was some editing.

Byron said:

“I had a lot of messages from my friends asking how I was affording all the designer stuff and a lot of comments from my followers asking if I’d won the lottery or something.”

After a week of pretending, Byron finally revealed the truth in a video that he titled, “I faked being a rich b*tch on Instagram for a week, and this is what happened…” on his YouTube channel.

He shared that he used the FaceTune, PicsArt app, and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom to alter his photos.

Byron’s editing skill was so good that majority of his friends and family were convinced with his photos and only five people asked him if they were real or not.

Although this was just an experiment for Byron, it makes us wonder how many influencers out there have been doing this for real.
