Last night I learnt a very big social media lesson. Apparently blocking or unfollowing is a VERY big deal... I honestly didn't realise this.
I decided to block a friends account as she post really negative and judgemental stuff. I'm all about positive influences and I use Instagram as quite an 'inspiration driven' page. Most of the people I follow are really into clean eating and health and I use it as my little dose of happiness pretty much daily.
This 'friend' was posting things (which of course she's entitled to) like 'I hope you get your period in a shark tank...' Type stuff.
I'm quite oblivious to the codes of such actions as blocking and apparently I was sending her a clear eff off out of my life message. There really wasn't a lot of thought behind it from my end - I just didn't want negativity and passive aggressive pics flooding my feed.
I wouldn't have a clue if I've been blocked or unfollowed by someone - well unless I wanted to stalk them ... Which mainly only happens with the celebs I follow!! Ha
We are now feuding as she got very personal and attacked me quite harshly so I'm feel very good about my decision. I had made her feel horrible because I posted photos of a handful of friends coming over from work for my birthday. This was actually organised by another friend and I had no idea who was invited and this cranky friend got all offended. I didn't even invite family or anything and not once did I think I'd be upsetting people or rubbing them the wrong way.
But I'm just wondering is deleting/blocking/in following really such a big drama?? I'm not on Fakebook and after this I'm really thinking of deleting my Instagram too ... Or making a new one without people I know.
