The Art of Unfriending on Facebook

When it comes to social media, some might say that in real life I am anti-social. My non-poetic, non-anonymous self has a total of 31 friends on Facebook and 14 followers on Twitter, as compared to approximately 10,000 “Likes” on my Facebook author page and over 150,000 followers on Twitter.

The Ultimate Kids Helmet Accessory: Pogginz
