I feel pressured by them is the thing. I'm 19 years old, and I only have a FB and an email. I joined this because I wanted to ask this question, and it was recommended in my search of sites.
Anyways, my bff is on Insta. she has hundreds of people following her, knowing what she's up to every day in her life. She shares too much in my opinion, but that's her choice. She's active on fb too, and has twitter, tumblr, a tinder account and like 3 email accounts. I just don't understand what the point to social media and letting basically the whole world into your life like she does. She wants me to make an Insta, a tumblr and a tinder account so I can find guys, but I'm nothing like her. I don't want to make those accounts, and I don't feel comfortable with posting my life over the internet for everyone to see.
Am I abnormal?
I just feel like my opinions / thoughts about online and internet stuff are so weird compared to other people. Basically all my friends are always on their phones, taking pics for their instas, and tumblrs and always texting their matches back on tinder / snapchat (which my other friend uses constantly)
I'm tired of feeling like I am wrong for not having these things. I choose not to make an account on these sites. Why is that so strange / hard for them to accept? Am I THAT weird or different?
I would like to hear your opinions please.
Thanks for answering.

Nothing wrong with you at all. I feel exactly the same way. I'm not in any social media anymore, and even when I was I didn't post almost anything, I just used it to chat with my friends, like "the messenger" was the thing in the past.
I hate it so much when I go to play pool with my friend and then he's on the fucking facebook with he's phone chatting with other people while I try to talk something. Social media is the most anti-social thing ever made.
But yes you are "abnormal" from their eyes. If you go to a crazyhouse, sanity is abnormal there and you would be the crazy one. If you are called abnormal or crazy in this world, you are on the right track. Don't become one of the crazies because of that.
It might be harder to find people like you, but it's definitely worth it to stay true to yourself, eventually you will find them and it will be 100 times better than to just go with the "normal"1

I understand your reasons for not wanting to have accounts on other websites.
It's true that some people share too much and that might be dangerous. And there's also people who are so obsessed with social media, that they don't pay attention to what's going around them. They don't think about their real problems.
It's a little bit sad.
But I don't think you're wrong for not wanting to have an account. That's a choice you made. And you're not obligated to do the same your friends do.
So, please don't feel that you're abnormal, because you're not. :)1
