The Deletion

Afternoon Reading, Face It Episode 2 of 3

The second of three short story commissions on the theme of social networking.

"It soon becomes apparent that I don't need to even see Emma White's account because she's sprawled all over my ex's page like spilt bleach. I decide my next move is self-deletion."

The Deletion, by Laura Dockrill, shows how reliant people are becoming on social networks and makes us wonder whether, after setting up an account, it's ever possible to truly quit.
