The world of the 21st Century is a sphere of ambient illusion on social media, where the values of some people are determined by their social status. Anything that is bright and shining need not necessarily be made of gold. Certain things appear to be valuable but actually, they are not. So we have to be careful not to pay more for things before examining their actual worth.
Sometimes we are deceived by appearances, thus the adage which says, “All that glitters is not gold”. It cautions us from being carried away by outward appearances that divert our attention and make less important things appear more valuable. Therefore, not all we see on social media is real but on the other hand, there are more positive implications for social and cultural identity.
