When a popular social media mommy blogger suddenly goes dark, none of her followers can understand why. So they do only what followers should do. Go to social media to ask why and to give their opinion. But none of them could have ever imagined the real reason why.
Violet Young is a married mother of three who has a successful YouTube channel and blog. She holds nothing back. And because of this she has many mothers who follow her because they know she understands them. She is just like them. She is one of them.
So when she shuts down all her social media overnight her followers not only don’t understand why, but go through a sort of withdrawal.
Lily has been following Violet’s media since her son was born. She is a bit obsessed with Violet and her happy family. As a single struggling parent in a going no where job, no real friends and Violet’s posts her only “real” companionship, she determines its her loyal duty to find out what has happened to Violet.
Yvonne is a photographer who is married to a handsome personal trainer. They have been trying to have a child for a while and have been unable. Yvonne follows Violet’s comings and goings for other reasons, none which are healthy.
Henry is Violet’s husband who although he lends his support to his wife on social media would rather keep their private life private. He would also prefer she give him some attention rather than her followers.
These characters all have something in common. They are all living with secrets and lies. Some unknown to the outside world and some even unrecognized in themselves. And just when you think you have them figured out another curveball is thrown!
Unfollow Me is a story about what social media can do to people from the media star themselves to their followers. It shows the entitlement some people feel once you have allowed them into your life. And how some followers can go from empathizing with their media “crush” to crushing them with their criticism.
