Social media is the new networking. We constantly find ourselves connecting with those on the screen sometimes more than those we meet in person. During this time where social distancing is becoming more and more the norm, we look towards social media for more connectivity. Not to mention the social pressures that social media sparks. 

The majority of us only post the highlights of our lives on social media. From the new car purchase to when we graduate with our well-deserved degrees. What isn’t show is the hard work that was put in behind the scenes to earn those things. Yet, we find ourselves wanting to compete with what others have on the internet. 

Whether you find yourself spending your rent money or too much of your savings to keep up with the social media norms, you may wonder when enough is enough. To combat your social media usage or spend more internationally, check out Mint’s infographic below.
