We've all been there. You're scrolling through your Facebook feed, and you see that one friend who always seems to be doing amazing things. They're posting about their latest trip to Europe, or they just bought a new house. And then there's you, stuck at your same old job with the same old rent to pay. It's easy to start feeling down on yourself when you compare yourself to others online. But before you start feeling too bad for yourself, it's important to remember that not everything is as it seems online. So today, we're going to take a look at some of the most popular things online and ask the question: do they really deserve all the hype? Stay tuned!

It's a hype-filled world out there, and some products do, to be honest, live up to their billing. But the truth is that a lot of things don't work that way. We invited readers to inform us about the world's most disappointingly overrated persons, trends, locations, and other elements. So we can all have fun debating how they're wrong.
