So Seth Godin wrote about how the Internet as Envy Amplifier.
The Internet amplifies everything. It creates a caricature of you. It is a “safe” place to explore those aspects of identity. If you’re shy, you can be internet extroverted. If you are lonely, you can easily make friends online.
Like Seth says, the what you see on the Internet is not who you are. I say that it’s a caricature of you.
