If College Students Were Honest on Instagram

By Elaina Berkowitz - Oct 11 2015

We all use Instagram. We all post pics. We're never honest. 

Instagram is one of the most popular social media outlets. Though we don't want to admit it, college students spend hours prepping for the perfect picture and choosing the perfect filter.

After all this hard work, we're faced with the challenge of coming up with the perfect caption. We want our lives to sound as cool as possible and our caption is a big part of that. That being said, our captions are never exactly honest. If they were, your Instagram feed would look a lot like this...

1. The Group Shot

2. The Classic Pretty Picture of Campus

3. The Going Out Pic

4. The Coffee Shot

5. The Selfie

6. The Throwback

7. The Workout Pic

8. The Sporting Event Shot

9. The Movie Night Pic

We probably won't trade in our Drake lyrics for super honest Instagram captions anytime soon, but it's good to keep in mind that you don't know the true story behind every shot.
