Google product: confusing as hell

I love podcast, listen to it almost everyday, from tech new, software development, to financial. i used to listening podcast using castbox, but it had its limit, it had subscription if you want to add podcast more than 100(?), i’m switching to Google podcast now, it has decent feature, so basic, no categorizing, no playlist, been try this app for quite sometimes now.

How Imgur avoids the ugliness of social media →

when you post on Instagram you’re actually curating your own personal brand. You are sharing the highlight moments of your life and in order to make your life look quite good. But then on the receiving end, the people that are looking at it, it makes them feel just a little bit worse about their life because they don’t quite measure up.

Could not agree more, yes, i have an instagram, yes, sometimes i did felt that feeling, and i remember a words or something on interwebs.

Instagram is a the gallery of curated fake life”.

Dunno whether it’s true on people’s case, but i think the real life, the thing that we hold on to, people that we care (in real life) are much more important that how many likes we got.
