to the OP, i'm the same. I don't have any social media websites, and I don't participate in them. I guess my own personal reasoning is that if I really am interested in someone's life, I'll contact them. Those I want to share my life with are usually kept abreast of what's going on when I telephone them or vice versa.

Except that you just posted on a social media site.

I really only use linkedin because I am in sales. FB I only use to post on online comments to news stories. I don't give a damn about you going to starbucks and the store and don't think you should care either. Twitter is a nuisance.

I guess I don't think of CD like FB, but I guess you are right.

Well, I guess you're right. I never really equated CD w/facebook or any of the other social media websites. Oh well..

I have a LinkedIn account and was active in it for a while, but there's little to gain from it, since I work totally behind the scenes in my job, in a very specialized area. I have no desire to reconnect from people I went to high school with, nor any of my exes. I'm pretty shy as well, and most social situations tire me out.

That's me. Anybody else?
There's enough insanity here. Why should I go looking for it anywhere else?

I don't do Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, or Linkedin. I have better things to do than sit at the computer all day and night. I spend enough time right here.

I wished I never joined Linkedin and Facebook!!!! I listened to some of my friends on this one and regretted it ever since. Who has that type of time to waste???

It looks as if it may get more difficult to stay away from Facebook.

Don't use social media. Don't Twitter or Facebook or any of it. Don't want my personal life out there for all to see. Don't have cell phone or text. Email minimally. Check email maybe once a day at work (work email).
