Social Media Advice from Jack

me: Wow Jack you got over 69 likes on your birthday post already.

Jack: Nice!

me: I get about 10-15 if I’m lucky.

Jack: That’s because you post 50 pictures of a tree.

me: I like my trees.

Jack: And you post every day and spam everyone’s feed.

me: Spam? They can unfollow me. I post what I like so I can go back and look at it. How often should I post in your opinion?

Jack: Like once a month.

me: Gasp!! I post at least once a day.

Jack: Well get it down to once a week maybe or just do one post with all the photos you would have posted each day.

me: But then I can’t see them unless I swipe.

Jack: But then you’re not annoying people who don’t want to see your posts all over their feed. You’ll lose followers.

me: I don’t care about followers.

Jack: Clearly.

Sigh.

16 year olds get to do what they want, right?

At least that’s what Jack has high hopes for…

Jack: When I’m 16 can I do whatever I want??

me: Within reason, but no, not really.

Jack: Like can I raid someones house?

me: Jack! Seriously…

Jack: Not in a bad way. It’s not a bad thing, really! Oh forget it…

me: Sigh…raiding is bad. It’s like stealing, right?

Jack: No, I mean raid in a good way.

me: Still no.

Jack: Okay then, first things first. I need spiky bands on my gloves, can I get those when I’m 16?

me: Maybe. Sounds scary.

Jack: It’s totally cool!

me: Where exactly are you getting these ideas?

Jack: Magic Treehouse book #5!!!!

me: Those are school recommended, right? Sheesh…

Jack: We get our best ideas from books that schools recommend…
