Some people live through Facebook. Of course, that means their lives are boring, so they use Facebook as a platform to augment reality. Memes caught on – whether it be the “caught me sleeping/bae caught me slippin” or eating money. People are desperate to look better-than-real in a world of fake.

Here’s a video that illustrates the phenomenon of augmenting reality into ego-boosting status updates. For example:
