A wannabe Instagram influencer learned the hard way that you shouldn’t lie to your followers after her own sister exposed her for faking a post.

Casey Sosnowski, a freshman at Florida Atlantic University, hoped she’d gain attention from her followers when she uploaded a picture of herself ‘on a hike’.

However, her post went viral – for all the wrong reasons – when Casey’s sister Carly took to Twitter to reveal that the picture was actually taken in the family’s back garden.

Exposing her sis, Carly wrote ‘my sister said she was going hiking… this is our backyard,’ alongside the original Instagram upload, which was tagged at Lake Okahumpka Park and Trail, and another picture of her sister having the photoshoot.

Ironically, Casey’s original picture had gained just 30 likes, however Carley’s tweet racked up an impressive 275,000 likes and more than 40,000 in just a week of it being posted.

However, Casey has cleverly gone back and edited her picture caption to make light of the situation, writing ‘did I go hiking? No. Is this my backyard?…… Maybe [wink face].’

Since the post blew up, Casey’s picture has reached more than 3,000 likes with many people commenting that her sister’s tweet had brought them to the account.

A clever marketing tool, perhaps? Either way, this is the type of content we like to see, proving that Instagram is not real.

One person replied to the tweet writing ‘don’t hate the player, hate the game,’ while another added ‘she brought a water bottle [hahahahaha] people will do anything for likes!’

Others shared their own fake social media stories, with one person writing:

My friend wanted me to take a pic of her while she was flipping her hair. It took me over 30 minutes to get it exactly the way she wanted.

The caption of her picture was – spontaneous one. After that I don’t believe anything I see on the gram.

It could be worse, as Instagrammers in Spain have reportedly been getting sick from posing in a toxic lake.

Ahh, the joys of social media.
