Oh, Instagram, how we have such a love/hate relationship with you.

Happily, there's a new account that is is doing a perfect job mocking the social struggle that is Instagram. Meet Socality Barbie, who recognizes the struggle that is finding those "perfectly candid" moments to share with your friends. With her tousled brown hair, thick-framed glasses and occasional heart-foam latte, she'll make you laugh at the joke that is authenticity on Instagram.

It's now become so complicated to simply share moments, now that those moments need to be perfectly planned out, complete with a variety of hashtags for optimum likes. There are even aggressive articles making the rounds about how you're failing at Instagram that detail the unspoken rules of the site.

Articles like this one from Vogue harbor advice such as, "never post more than three photos a day," "posting your #TBT before 9:00 a.m. is embarrassing," and "a Diptic or Pic Stitch of several images from your vacation is not a good idea."

Thanks again, Socality Barbie, for reminding us how silly living life confined inside the four corners of Instagram can be. So, get out there and live beyond the #Instagood and #VscoCam coordinated shots!

Because we girls can do anything! Right, Barbie?
