PEOPLE who receive high numbers of likes on social media are provably better than those who do not, a study has confirmed.
The new study examined Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram and concluded that the more popular you are on these platforms, the higher your actual worth.
Professor Helen Archer said: “We measured the cumulative lifetime social media likes of various test subjects and found that people with fewer likes and followers, irrespective of their ‘real world’ achievements, were losers.
“In contrast those with record numbers of Instagram likes, for example Beyoncé or Ronaldo, are the peak of everything humanity could ever hope to be. That’s just science.”
Test subject Tom Booker, who has spent most of his life volunteering in developing world communities without wireless internet, said: “I thought I was a good man. But it turns out without the momentary approval of internet acquaintances, none of it meant anything.”
Professor Archer said: “Tom is a particularly unfortunate case. If he’d only put his work on Facebook he could have scored some epic reactions and maybe even a viral post.
“But because he did the work for the sake of it, and not for an Instagram story, our algorithms have written him off as a human being altogether.”
