The world crisis photos from Crisis Relief Singapore highlights a blunt truth about the false compassion often showcased in social media platforms.

If you use Facebook, Twitter or any other social media platform, you’ve most certainly come across a friend sharing world crisis photos and imploring you to like those photos or pages in the aim to make a difference—even though you know it won’t, but your guilt into liking it.

The ‘Liking Isn’t Helping’ campaign from Crisis Relief Singapore features various depictions of human catastrophe with photoshopped images of people giving the thumbs up to highlight how sharing or liking an image doesn’t make an aorta of a difference in those people’s lives.
