Does social media make you spend?

Social media has made it difficult not to compare yourself with others.

We can see that the neighbours have bought a brand new car, that the relatives have bought a bigger house, that our colleagues are on an expensive Easter holiday, that our friends are buying a boat and, worst of all, that people we don’t even know have things that we think we should have. But the reality is, comparing ourselves with what other people are buying will never get us anywhere. Cash in the bank and #ExperiencesNotThings are important. So, is there a direct link between your spending habits and your social feed?
