Some people just like their privacy, saying its a red flag because they like their privacy isn't an issue.122
What Girls & Guys Said
This question is sort of comical because young girls think it's weird if a guy doesn't use a bunch of social media, and post stuff of himself.
Guys worry when a girl does the inverse of this, posting way too much content of herself.60
I can see that you’re 19 and social media has been around all your life. Before the internet was a thing, people used to connect differently. This is why there’s so many people on your comments seeming appalled you would even ask such a thing.
As a millennial, I seen the best of both worlds. Social media will give you insight into their lives before you. Quite convenient, if you really think about it. But the internet is not really a necessary thing, as in- the population makes it important, but in reality, it isn't. There’s more tools than their social media profiles to get to know them, although at your age, it may not seem like it.
So if someone doesn’t have a social media account, they’re probably more woke than they are a serial killer. They’re probably more tired of the hype than they are trying to hide something... or they know the true worth of their data and refuses to give it up for free.
Communicate. Talk. Ask. Develop an understanding of who they are without the need to use social media. It’ll make you seem more.. mature.
People shouldn’t date unless they know how to use the right words to get the right answers..20
I mean People kinda subconsciously use social media as a way to fact-check for lies. So a person not having that social media makes the other person more uncomfortable because they cannot do that. So while a person not having social media isn't really a red flag it will sorta still feel like it to a person.
Also it could actually be just 100% a red flag, like what if the person don't have social media cause he want's to be less tractable after he's killed u lmao. Extreme and rare case but if there is still a 1% chance that's... still a chance.20
No... I actually do not use a lot of personal social media. I only recently made a Facebook profile because I was forced to by a company in order to redeem a reward from my points. I have not used it for any other purpose or added anyone because I just think it has devolved our abilities to have real and genuine relationships.40
I personally deleted the majority of my social media as a teenager and it honestly has helped me to stay productive more often in terms of preventing potential distractions so instead I use games or I play a card game I came up with on my own time any time I get bored and I also have an over the door basketball hoop to help me do a productive hobby that doesn't require any electronics.41
I hate social media, in hardly ever on, then I get yelled at by family for not knowing things that were on FB like a funeral or a birthday party. I tell people to fuck off and personally tell me via call or text if it a actual important event.
It would be a major plus if my partner didn't have it.30
God no. The total opposite. The only social media I have is FB, unless this counts. But im new to it. I don't snapchat.. Instagram, or have Twitter. And the last time I posted anything on FB... well, will be a year next month. Lol. I chose to work on myself and not date. Issues and all that. Take it as a good thing. They are more intuned with themselves.11
Seriously, has this world gone to shit this badly that you would need to as that question? Like, what the fuck is wrong with your dumb ass... like thinking people who never have an SMS account must be like "serial killers" or something... makes me wonder why you feel the need for others to have a freely available website... perhaps you are the social site serial killer that has been stalking these particular areas? I mean why else would you be upset that some people don't have sms accounts...70
It depends on how you define social media.
Is going on this site considered "social media?"32
Only if you're looking for love online.
My husband doesn't use social media. I don't really. I have FB, but I rarely use it.
I would only have an issue regarding someone not using social media if I was looking for dates or a relationship with a total stranger online, because you can't look into their background as additional proof that they're legit or not. You can learn a lot about someone by their social media.30
No, just the opposite. I have no social media because I think it is a huge time waster, it contributes to all sorts of social and societal problems, it creates self esteem issues in children (especially girls) and even adults and it opens your life up to the entire world so your information can be stolen. Even your personal property can be stolen if you let the world know you are on vacation and your home is empty.
I think social media has had a particularly troubling affect on today's women and has contributed to the trend of women being shallow, materialistic and entitled.0
On the contrary. You know that that person will spend more time with you than sitting staring at his/her phone all the time.60
as strange as this may sound but back in the olden days you know 2000 and prior before you millennial shitbags and gen z 'ers came there was a time when the internet barely existed and social media was barely a thing with something called MySpace and prior to that no social media at all. *gasp* what a strange concept.. people actually used to verbalize to each other face to face *the hell you say* *i'm lying you say* nope it's all true people actually also used to pick up a phone and *get this another new concept for you millennials and gen z 'ers* actually talk on the phone (the hell you say or gasp not true) why yes it is all true people actually used to communicate face to face or over the phone for what it was originally meant to do talk. god help you millennial shitbags and you gen z 'ers if you were ever sent back 20-30 years in time prior to social media10
Why would it be most studies I've heard of say they are negwfor your health: anxiety, depression, stress, eye strain, posture of neck and back.
I have a few apps of course but I usually use YouTube more than any other mainly for music and animal clips 😁.0
Nope. Quite the opposite.
Someone with shit tons of social media, is either obsessive or too full of themselves.51
I don't care what anybody says, it is a red flag. What the hell is that person hiding!15
Not a redflag. I understand someone who truly has no social media than someone who has and actively uses all of them. Like I have specific uses for the socials I use and don't seek to have and use everything.10
I didn't have any social media until quite recently11
Nah, it's fine. I am actually quite jealous of people who don't have socials. They seem so free to me.42
dating someone with too much social media is a red flag90

NO, if anything that will be a plus, I love when I hear people say that they don't get on social that much, and I applaud them. I agree the future is moving into digital but some people rely so much on social media that it can change their thoughts. Social Media has really been damaging our minds if you think about it.
