Friday Fictioneers: All This Social Media Nonsense





All This Social Media Nonsense


‘All this Facebook, Twitter and what have you? Last year I got three business deals through in the time my niece spent on Social Media. All this buying clothes and tapping away on that machine. Today some tough love is in order Jack. She needs to learn how to be out in the real world with real people.’, I said to my brother.

He smiled, sipped his tea.

‘Zara has an online fashion business that’s doing very well Andrew.’, Jack smiled.

I sip my tea. He and I know my business is crumbling but talking big makes me feel better.


My book Black Coat based on a previous Friday Fictioneers prompt is available at:

    Very much the direction of travel in the world today. I still struggle with youngsters who earn a living as ‘YouTubers!’

  3. Time to give up and join in. Nice one.

  4. I sense a hint of jealously here.

  5. plaridel says:

    andrew has a point. zara needs to go out and socialize in the real world too. it’ll help keep her foot on the ground.

  6. Priya says:

    This is a ‘thriving business’ he needs to tap into. He is unaware of the power of social media.

  7. draliman says:

    The pros and cons of an online presence. Everything in moderation!

  8. I think we all need someone who believes in us. As others have said, finding a balance in this digital world.

  9. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Nice job.

  10. jillyfunnell says:

    So Zara was working away there and making a success of it. I agree with others regarding the digital age. Balance is good.

  11. Sounds like she knows just what she’s doing and he’s been left behind

  12. subroto says:

    It’s the new digital economy. He is probably jealous of her success.

  13. Dear Lisa,

    The fact is that digital marketing is essential in this day and age. Believable scene and dialogue.



  14. Some are very successful in this business. Many just waste their time… just as it has always been

  15. Laurie Bell says:

    Hahaha brilliant. You captured this beautifully. The lack of understanding and bewilderment

  16. kislaya says:

    A realistic take on prompt! True people are doing so much like earning, on this world of the internet!
    Wonder if he is jealous due to lack of understanding of Zara’s business..

  17. That’s the world of Generation Z…we won’t be able to understand much!

  18. It’s a different world today.
    Congrats on your book.
