Hipster Barbie Instagram Account Mocks Everything Wrong With Social Media


Thu, Sep 10th, 2015 11:00 by Peter Steen NEWS

On Instagram, the @socalitybarbie account — dubbed Hipster Barbie — has gained in significant notiriety as it mocks how social media has become the "perfect representation" of that someone who pretends to leads the perfect life.

Socality Barbie subtly satirizes how smarmy millennials create “natural” conditions to emphasize their authenticity. Each post features a shockingly earnest or explicitly satirical caption, a la, “It’s like we’re all competing to make the best computer screen saver and the winner gets crowned most authentic.”
