Long live the likes. Or not? On Facebook and in our visual culture, perfection reigns. The bar is set high; if you fail, you’re out. So you have to be somebody - whether you like it or not.

No one likes it when their Facebook post does not get a ‘like’. Our (visual) culture increasingly reflects a sham reality where perfection predominates and everyone pretends to be as beautiful as possible. In this documentary, people who are actively participating in this visual culture react to the phenomenon. Anything is possible, but the bar is set high; if you fail, you’re no longer in. So you have to be somebody - whether you like it or not.
