Fakes of visual representations are not new. The first photo was faked 150 years before Photoshop existed. But the medium itself and how the fake is created has changed and certainly will have a huge impact on culture and society in general.
Reddit comments are often a great source of information. Even a small post from a random user can generate a wave of understanding for many other people reading the comments.
