An online persona refers to the image or impression a person creates of themselves online through their social media profiles and activity. It is the way a person presents themselves to others online, and it can be different from their real-life personality.
A curated feed on social media refers to a collection of posts, images, and videos that have been specifically selected and arranged by an individual or platform to present a certain image or theme. It is a carefully crafted collection of content that aims to showcase the best version of a person or brand.
False reality on social media refers to the idea that social media can often present a distorted or inaccurate view of reality.
