On her new website, Essena Oneill talks about the stories behind some of her most liked photos, such as the one below. This one was taken on her 15th birthday with the sole purpose of uploading a hot picture of herself as a Facebook profile photo, which she hoped would make her popular.

Before she migrated to her new website, Essena aimed – or at least appeared to aim – at educating the youth about social media’s lack of authenticity, about how most of what is seen on social media is a product of genius social marketing such as this seemingly harmless and candid photo of her in between sips of orange juice.
