It is not good effect, especially on the mental health of users, even the researchers agreed to say that social media sites such as Facebook, Google+ or the microblogging site Twitter, can make users feel their lives are always compared to others.

Surprising that the users react with other ways to upload photos that are considered the best they can project themselves, competition arises to show the ability and self-best with friends on social media and making others feel bad.

Of course it's nice to travel, but on the other hand they are the users to use it as an instrument to show the best moments in their lives, who would not be jealous of other people see your vacation photos into a beautiful place and may be envisioned.
