Lewis Carroll would have loved the Internet. After all, it’s a looking-glass world where nothing is quite what it seems; a magical wonderland filled with curious characters and vivid, unexplored landscapes. Watching the colorful pageantry pass by on a smartphone screen, it’s often hard to believe your eyes.
Popular software programs like Facetune and Photoshop make it even harder to separate truth from illusion. A 21st-century version of the Cheshire Cat wouldn’t bother with the old disappearing trick to draw attention; he’d simply turn on Facebook filters.
