The pressures from social media - stimulus for PHSE

The pressures from social media - stimulus for PHSE

Lifefaker.com helps fake perfection on social media using the strapline “Life isn’t perfect. Your profile should be.” USEFUL FOR PHSE as stimulus material. The material may be used to kickstart sessions around the use of social media. THE PREMISE Instead of going to the trouble of living a perfect life, now you can just get the photos instead. Lifefaker.com ‘sells’ ready-made photo packages you can post as your own. These include The Look At My Holiday and Cry Package, The I Found Love and Babies Package, and The My Weekend Was Amazing Thanks Package. The site includes testimonials from real Lifefaker users. Ruby, 22, said she’s “never seemed happier”. THE REALITY However, anyone who tries to use Lifefaker.com will learn the real purpose of the project. Instead, they’ll receive a message from Sanctus, a mental health start-up. The site reminds us that we’ve all felt the pressures of social media – with 62% of people feeling inadequate comparing their lives to those online. The site users can click through to Sanctus.io for a film exploring the unhealthy behaviours on social media that impact our mental health, and what we can do to change them.
