What could POSSIBLY go wrong with this new social network?

One of the biggest issues with social media is its ability to make people feel bad about themselves. When you scroll through your feeds, it sometimes seems everyone is richer/more attractive/luckier/having a better time than you. Photoshop and filters only make it worse. Self-esteem gets destroyed. Mental health issues ensue.

Imagine, then, an entire social network where everyone who posts is posting something fake. Nothing is real. What could possibly go wrong with something like this?
