I never liked the look of twitter and the fact that you can only write a certain amount of words.

I’m not sure what is meant by “overrated”. If millions and millions of people are using it every single day, if not every hour, then it’s probably not overrated. I’m on FB, but I’ve narrowed down the number of people I follow, simply because they post so much junk that I find myself wasting time just looking for something - anything(!) - worthwhile. I don’t care to see what you ate for dinner last night and still won’t care when tonight comes around. On the plus side I’ve made money off what I post for my part time business, so I really can’t complain.

I don’t post on Twitter, but I do follow 4-5 entities during the fire season here in California. I don’t follow people on Twitter.

I pretty much use YouTube to educate myself (when working on my car), and to catch up on NHL highlights from the day before.

All in all I use social media almost everyday, but if it wasn’t there anymore I would be heartbroken. Radio on the other hand . . .

Yes, we can say that it is overrated. We gave too much attention to these social media channels. One must know the better use of it. Why would we go far away and addicted to it?

For someone my age (40s) it can seem that way, but I grew up without it, I developed my friendships in a different way and now, it's basically an easy way to keep track of and occasionally say hi to my friends. There are some people in my circle that do put a little too much emphasis on their social media presence, but it isn't really common.

However, for young folks, it's important, it has become the way they communicate and socialize. One is judged by their social media persona, and expected to participate. It's easy for someone my age to say that kids waste too much time or are too concerned with their social media image, but we weren't raised in a time when it was so common. It's how kids share things about themselves, it's how they develop their image, it's how they socialize, meet new people and communicate. A young person without social media is an outcast.

It's radically different from the way pretty much everyone grew up until recently. It will, and is, changing the way advertisers work, it's changing how campaigns are run, how ideas are shared and how we keep in touch with people we meet.
