Back then we could not do that since phones were talk & text only - smartphones didn't exist yet, or any kinda phone that smartphones are used for with apps & internet.


Also, a lot of people are apparently ditching landlines because we are now dependent on cell phones, so there's no need for a landline. The landline rarely gets used.

For those of us that are in our late 30's and older, it is probably easier to say that social media is overrated because we grew up in an era with just landline phones and snail mail.

I am not a facebook user and don't plan to be. I don't use any social media EXCEPT nextdoor. I was hesitant to use nextdoor at first but I actually find it useful for updates. I rarely ever post on Nextdoor though.

I think it depends on what you call over rated and why? For many of us, we have lived years without any form of social media unless you call the telephone social media. For others they wouldn't know what to do without it. I do use facebook some, but not a lot. I wouldn't think of tweeting. But then, I am much older ad if I did do most of that, none of my friends would even know it. My biggest complaint is the lack of good communications on a personal bases because of social. When I get a message inviting me to the the celebration of a dear friends life when I din't even know she was no longer with us, it has gone way to far. Or when people go on a political rampage and regardless of your views you hear them blabber on and on, it has gone to far I am afraid some social media is breaking up friendships. That is not what it is meant to do.

Not only overrated but extremely stupid. The only way I find social media useful is if I own a business and I want to promote an item I want to sell and posting it for all to see.

Twitter is fun for trolling and getting opinions on topics. the Medias where people show off pictures of themselves and post about their problems is lame to me so I dont bother those.

I wouldn't say overrated because people use it everyday. The question should be is it nauseating since everyone on your friends list they have their own reality show.
