Wow - good story and such irony about their mutual friend. Who was the most "sociable" and now a somewhat of a recluse a "prisoner" to the Social media. I enjoyed this. Thanks! Blessings~

WOW indeed! This was such a well written, engrossing story! You gave a perfect view of what can so easily happen, as someone gets pulled into the social media addiction! Great job on this!
Strong beginning drew me into your story immediately. I think the theme of how someone very outgoing could get caught up into social media to the exclusion of others is excellent and well portrayed in the end. I thought you were going in another direction: did you intend to make the group of women sound self-righteous? (I thought they did.) If so, bringing out that interplay more would be satisfying…maybe that is why Louise preferred her online life?
I thought you said about as much "between the lines" as in the story. Well done.
