    This Artist Made Visual Representations Of Social Media Apps And They're Spot-On

    It's a metaphor, you see?

    Like it or not, social media is a pretty unavoidable part of life now.

    Artist and designer Ben Fearnley wanted to examine how people interact with sites/apps like Facebook and Twitter.

    The result: these stunning 3D illustrations of "sculptures" that represent the major social media brands.

    Fearnley created these illustrations with the specific traits of each platform in mind. For example, Facebook has a bit of a voyeuristic connotation to it.

    Then there's Twitter, which is a giant megaphone...and yes, those are hashtags pouring out the bottom.

    Snapchat is especially tongue-in-cheek: The shredder concept obviously represents how Snaps disappear...

    ...But the note on the side makes a statement about the kind of content you get on Snapchat, 99% of the time.

    And finally there's Instagram, which is a heaping pile of likes to "Insta-feed your ego."

    Fearnley notes that he uses social media plenty himself, so this project isn't meant to denigrate the platforms or people who use them.
