Let’s say someone types “Travel Mexico” into their favorite search engine.  Go ahead, try it.  A slew of stories and articles will come up. Now, try to determine which ones are accurate and genuine information from people who travel there.  That’s the thing.  Most people who are writing these stories don’t actually go to Mexico. Most of these stories are imagined, made up, or fake.

Bored Panda recently featured another story about fake influencers.

Allow me to let you in on a little secret.  Most ‘journalism’ you read is complete caca-del-toro.  One person will write a story about a topic that wasn’t covered in a while.  Then, seemingly overnight, over a dozen stories will pop up. Curiously, they all echo the same original story in that particular writer’s own words.  Is it any more accurate?  Nope!

Faking it is the currency of the social media world, it’s even how influencers get their start. -Bored Panda

What’s crazy is now there are twelve stories about Mexico travel, all based on one account.  That original story writer hadn’t even been to Mexico.  They just happened to glom onto a local Mexican story on their social media feed.

The worst are the ones who fake their travel adventures. That Instagram influencer or Facebook wanderlust warrior isn’t what you think. They are probably clever people simply looking to make money. This is nothing new. Since the dawn of journalism, this practice has been ongoing.
