Results on European countries show that life satisfaction decreases with an increase in deprivation and exclusion after controlling for individual's income, relative income.

Being objectively deprived of a good or service many other people in society or their peers have (basic needs and status goods) causes someone to feel more deprived than when someone lacks a good that only few people have (luxury goods).

In line with research findings showing that SNS users’ comparing with others may culminate in decreases in subjective well-being (Fan et al.,Seo and Hyun, ), it is expected that feelings of relative deprivation may have a detrimental impact on subjective happiness. Therefore, two hypotheses are proposed to explore the different Author: Hyeseung Yang.
