There’s a difference between reality and social media…right? Right?!
How do we explain, then, the outrage, the hurt, the disdain when someone is unfriended on Facebook?
I’m sure you’ve witnessed it yourself, but the negative impact that an unfriend can have on a person is quite the new and unique phenomenon.
Just a few weeks ago, a friend of mine raged via Facebook status about his latest snub. Even though she was no longer privy to his commentary, he called her out by name, scolding her for being so rude, so insensitive, so mean.
How dare she?
