Abstract In television, movies and video games, advisory notices are used to warn users so that they can be prepared for what they are about to see. This experiment used the concept of an advisory notice, but adapted it for use in social media. The goal was to prepare social media users that what they're seeing is not necessarily an accurate representation of another person’s life.
