My 12-year old daughter got mad yesterday when she discovered that an older girl she knows stopped following her on Instagram. Outraged, she vowed that as retaliation, she was going to stop following the older girl in return. I realized that this antisocial social media was about to turn ugly and suggested that the point was to express yourself and not worry about who wanted to "follow" you. Both my children looked at me like I was nuts. "It's ALL about how many followers you have, mom!" What do I know...in my mind people follow you if you are a cult leader, have a scout troop, or are a yellow brick road.
