Many people say social media is to blame for people feeling more depressed and anxious and suicidal these days. It’s been explored here on this blog before, and the idea is that it’s because on social media, people are judged by likes and follows and compare themselves to others. Recently, I was watching an interview with Brittany Furlan, a person that used to be a Vine star. She brought up another reason why social media may cause pain in a way I never thought of before. She said one thing about her, was that she had different accounts on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, and she noticed often how she had more followers on one service compared to others. This would upset her. So the various and different accounts people have throughout the internet may also be a causality for their suffering, by comparing them to each other.
