Contrary to popular belief, posting an aerial shot of your flat white on a beat-up wooden table on Instagram does not make you authentic.

Neither does wearing a beanie hat, or fashion glasses, or taking a bubble bath, or your blog about how to live an authentic life.

The woman behind the account wants to remain anonymous so Socality Barbie maintains her true authenticity, obviously.

"People were all taking the same pictures in the same places and using the same captions," she told Wired.

Lesson learned: Stop being so insufferable on Instagram.
