Lately, an Instagram celebrity named Lil' Miquela (pronounced Lil MiQuaaludes) has been in the news quite a bit, and for good reason. Lil' Miquela, despite her insanely lifelike language, posture, and perspective, is not real. Not like "Timmy Thick sociological study" not real, but computer generated not real. Despite this, she's become a fashion icon, Instagram celebrity, advocate, and now pop star, begging the obvious question of whether or not we're fully prepared for the kind of uncanny valley we're entering with social media. With this in mind, we broach the topic of r/darkfuturology, considering the ramifications of Lil Miquela (Lil MiQuaaludes) on our overall perception of Internet authenticity.
