Do you use any type of social media account? ORRR are you one of the few that doesn't use social media?
As for me... I basically quit social media... and I am 25. I don't use any social media accounts. I only have a snapchat to talk to women I used to meet up with (no sexual images exchanged)... but I barely use it. Last time I used Snapchat was 7 months ago,

I only have a facebook.
I like to see how others are doing. I don't post anything and I don't usually talk to anyone on there (only family). I use it to keep up with my relatives.
I also like to play fb games sometimes when I'm really bored and actual games don't sound appealing.
i also like to read the trashy things people say and do... and looking through my feed is a nice way to find interesting articles to read.
But I don't have anything other than a facebook. And I could go without it. I don't care about social media that much.0

I don't use any social media. Never really have. I mean... I watch youtube videos and I guess technically that qualifies as social media but it's not really what I understand when I hear the term social media.
I used to have a MySpace account many years ago. Some of the younger people on GaG probably don't even know what that is ;-). But then it became stupid, so I quit it. A bit after that, I made myself a Facebook account because there was this big hype going on and everyone was constantly talking about Facebook. But about a year after I got my account, I figured it's even more stupid than MySpace. I really hate how everyone on Facebook has this obsession with being cool and hip and trendy and everyone's constantly bragging about where they went on vacation and what they ate and what club they went to and who they fucked... it's so obnoxious. People always tell me "I need Facebook to stay in touch with old friends". That doesn't make sense to me. I stay in touch with my old friends and I don't need Facebook. Hell, our great grandparents stayed in touch with their friend without any Facebook. I can just text my friends or call them or - even better - actually meet them in person. I'm generally not a big fan of modern technology. I also hate how people constantly whip out their smart phones and stare at their screens when you try to have a conversation with them in the real world. For example when my girlfriend and I just got to know each other 5 years ago, this was a really bad habit she had that I had to tell her to get rid of. Every time we went on a date together and sat in a restaurant face to face, there came a moment where she took out her phone. I think many young people are so addicted to this social media crap that they lost the ability to go through situations such as simply being quiet for 2-3 minutes if nobody can think of anything to say and instead enjoy the moment. I know I probably sound like some 90-year old grandpa but I think it's really true. It's a shame people are so hooked on this stuff. And I also believe social media actually makes you more asocial cuz "friends" on Facebook are often not actual friends and many folks behave so nasty to other people on social media. Luckily in my country other social except from Facebook and Twitter are not common and not very popular. For example rarely anyone has Tumblr or Instagram. I feel like a lot of social media make people believe they're soooooo important.0
