Imagine an instagrammer like any other, but all made up and guided by algorithms. Looks like a human, writes like a human, “does” what humans do and documents their life online. You will never meet them in person, because their life is a made-up story unfolding in realtime. As if Gulliver’s travels had been reported over a period of years, with small snippets every day, but without one-eyed giants, Lilliputians and other extraordinary events.
Can you imagine following someone on social media who lives an ordinary life, attends events and goes shopping, but has been 100 percent made up by business people, with the sole purpose of making more money?
