Social Media Envy

This reflection is based on the Gospel reading for the Fourth Sunday of Lent, Luke 15:1-32.

The 2017 McCann study called “Truth about the Youth” surveyed over 30,000 respondents all over the world, and found that one out of two young people today feel worse about themselves whenever they see the posts of their friends on social media. This rising phenomenon has been called “social media envy.”
