    In Pig’s case, it’s true. Everyone else’s life is better than his.

    There’s pretty clear from several studies that spending time consuming social media generally makes you less happy. No matter which medium.

    There should be a law that if someone posts a picture of their meal, they have to share.

    On IG yesterday I learned I have a trophy wife. It turns out she’s a participation trophy but we’re happy so there’s that. Oh, and I saw some kittens falling over. Good day.

    If pig believes that some of what he reads on any social media site is true I have a bridge he might want to buy.

    I have always called that “Waltonizing”. The old tv shows, especially the Waltons, always showed the ideal perfect families, who lived in wonderful towns and beautiful houses and were full of love and laughter. I know someone who always thinks everyone has it better than her, so I tell her she is “Waltonizing” again and she has no idea what fears, miseries or struggles go on behind closed doors.

    Social media in a nutshell. They sell our information to corporations while making us feel bad in order to get us to double down on spending in order to ‘feel better’.

    Of course Pig is unattractive — he’s a pig. :-D

    (Before I catch any hate, I actually find piglets very cute and I collect pig items. Every year, my wife gets me a pig calendar or two.)

    Aside from my comic content, I avoid any and all social media. You can’t miss what you never had. From what I hear, I’m not missing much anyway. Simple solution for a better life, it seems is to avoid all the social (seems really anti-social) media sites…..

    I don’t need Instagram for that. My friend and her husband retired early, have the perfect marriage (trust me), travel all over the world, and buy whatever they want. They are always texting and emailing about their fabulous lives, even if they’re just having cocktails on their back deck. I’m not jealous, because they earned it, but all of the boasting gets a little old.

    Why you shouldn’t compare yourself to others. Styx warned us about it in their song ‘The Grand Illusion’.
