Alex Gregory on what social media is doing to us

The New Yorker cartoonist Alex Gregory uses humor to show how social media changes the ways we communicate, and what that’s doing to us.

Wanted to share this funny cartoon by Alex Gregory in The New Yorker Magazine on Instagram. It’s how social media is changing the way we communicate, and what that’s doing to us. It’s funny because it rings true, to the extreme. Check out the facial expression on the guy next to the one complaining. Gregory conveys a lot with a few lines and dots. Brilliant!
