They’re an Escape

Like a great deal of social media itself, virtual influencers offer an escape from users’ day to day. While they are of course perfect by design, many consumers seem to appreciate the up-front nature of their feeds. Knowing that every caption is scripted, and every outfit conceived by a team of technicians, CGI influencers feel in many ways, more real.
