I think because in a different way people tend to "lie" about their appearance and when it's the internet, it's even easier. Women will spend hours putting on makeup, trying to make eyes look bigger, wider, lips look fuller, combing hair different ways to make themselves look different. They try to find clothes that hide defects. Some will get plastic surgery - liposuction, implants. Men will sometimes wear boots that make them look taller.
