You know, I didn’t think about this when I made this, but in a way this comic represents our online lives… there’s always those people on social media who everyone flocks to… and it’s easy to feel left out if you aren’t the person getting all the likes and shares and comments. So you go after the “star”, something shiny that you can hold up to get some of those people to look your way for once. And it feels good.
But then again, those people who like/share/comment are probably going to forget all about you when the next shiny “star” comes along. So there’s a little bit of emptiness to it too, and maybe even pressure to continue finding “stars” to share.
