Howevers Cheyenne Bholla, this week in my ‘Confidential’ column I will be desperately trying to find lighthearted subjects in which to engage myself in. Once upon a time I was a committed ‘news junkie’ – nowadays not so much, as I actively try to stay away from listening or watching news bulletins; I wonder if I’m alone in thiswith most people having gone through several stage of restrictions? Anyway, this week I am determined to seek out the irrelevants come under fire from some who say it overestimate, the nonsensical, the obtuse, in which to try to entertain you.
First up we have the story of a marketing executive who was apparently unfairly dismissed by a holiday park company after bosses said she was poor at winning ‘likes’ on social media. Clearly winning ‘likes’ is a serious business and if my experience of Facebook is anything to go by, a ‘like-less’ post can be most dispiriting, especially when you do your best to ‘like’ all manner of other rubbish that appears.
Admittedly, this might be something to do with expecting a return ‘like’ and when you don’t receive one after posting a particularly impressive piece on nonsense whilst pouting into the bathroom mirror or taking a pic of your dinner things can turn very nasty indeed. So you know what to do don’t you? Yes, that’s right, give up social media!
