if so why?

Not a red flag at all. I refuse to do Facebook, Instagram, or anything like it. I like gag, because it's sharing opinions, not here for pics of what you ate for lunch, your new whatever the hell you just bought, or status update.
Similarly, I do not like or agree to participate in how superficial most social media is. I don't want to know what your new carpet looks like. I want to know what your biggest fear is. I hate how edited, piecemeal, people pleasing it all is. I think if you can stand back from it for just a min, it becomes clear just how shallow it is.
I don't like that people are obsessed with checking it, competing on it, and missing what's right in front of their faces and actually real for the sake of notifications about the latest 9 billion things people took a pic of in the last hour. Have you noticed how shallow it all is? People have 900 friends, but only about 10-20 who really are interested at all. When did we lose the ability to value depth with those 10-20 in favor of a superficial list of 900?
When is the last time people just stood and watched a sunset with someone? Watch it, watch the persons face, listen to them describe it, listen to what laughing sounds like when it's shared. We are missing life by editing it into bite size artificially filtered and processed pieces. I want to actually swim in the ocean, not sit on the side and try to get the right angle so I can show it to 500 people in hopes of getting on average, 5-20 who go "ok. Cool." I don't care if nobody knows I went for a swim. I did, and I loved it.
No thank you. I'd like to enjoy what's mine, and wish you the best enjoying yours. I'm keeping mine for me, and for the love of all things real, please keep some of yours for you.2

No. Why would the lack of social media accounts sway me away from dating a woman? If anything, it's better that she doesn't because she prefers in person interaction. And so do I - when I can.1
