I personally withdrawed myself from social media half a year ago. I never liked Facebook so that's one thing I never had. I deleted my Instagram page and got rid of everything else which allowed other people to dig into my life and business through their phones. I am just a private person and I feel like social media isn't adding any value to my life. It's not that I am anti-social. I love socializing with friends and going out, I just prefer do to all talking and sharing with the ones who matter to me most in real life, face to face. I feel like people often react shocked when they ask for my socialmedia and I tell them I don't have any. I do have Whatsapp so I can chat with friends and families, it's just these pages I don't have. Is it a turn off or like a big deal? I remember recently a guy I like asked me if I have FB or Insta, once I said no, that was it. Not even gonna ask me for my number so we can text? Is social media that important?

Thought my crush was even better cause she didn't have Facebook and she made it sound like she was unpopular and stuff. Just made her seem more down to Earth or maybe more like me.
Turns out she has (had) a Twitter account and about 800 followers, and an Instagram (which is private so idk). She didn't have an FB until about a year ago.
I think she deleted her Twitter too and I don't know why still. She doesn't have a smartphone anymore so that could be why I guess.
But yeah social media is just a distraction and the girls who use it a LOT can be kinda annoying. Because they'll definitely use it while you're trying to just hang out.1

I felt better and free when I started withdrawing from social media too. I just got sick of it after I've been told so many harsh things there. I deleted all my apps like whatsapp, viber, whatever... I had Facebook years ago but I never got back there once I left. It's such a waste of time, all about superficiality and gossiping. I also deleted Twitter a year from now and I felt so much relief. I don't even use my phone very much. I can keep it turned off for like 2 to 3 days if I don't have anything important planned.
Not being present on social media didn't prevent me from meeting new people and making new friendships. I actually got closer to some friends and met more people after I deleted all my accounts. Those who really care never fail to reach out, and spending time face to face is a hundred times better than texting.
I've never been told that I'm weird for not being virtually active though I'm always honest with people and tell them that I don't like social media. But some people have been disturbed by the fact that my phone is turned off sometimes :p2
