I don't use Facebook/Twitter/Snapchat etc... I only use Instagram, because I quite like it, but not to post selfies.

I'm 28. I don't have time for social media at all.

I have a Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Rarely post on any of them, just use it to keep up with news and new projects from actors who I enjoy watching.

If Facebook and Twitter went away I wouldn't be mad. Instagram is the one I use most frequent, but, I don't base my life on social media. Never cared for posting selfies, find it a bit annoying. Nobody cares what I had for lunch, what my cat looks like etc.

I also use my phone for texting mainly! Don't like speaking on the phone. Email gets checked once every few days. I suppose I am not a very social person.

I find social media to be for shallow people who want compliments.

Me on the other hand, I could care less about that. The only people I care about are my friends, family, and wife.

Sounds like a nice life to live

Social media is really what you make of it. I've been lucky. I've found jobs through Facebook. I believe I have found my next place to live through it and met a lot of great people through it not to mention reconnected with old friends.

If you don't want a presence on social media, that's fine for you. I'll just keep connecting with folks through Facebook in the meantime.

This. I have managed to connect with so many people from my past who would have otherwise gone spiraling off into oblivion, never to be seen or heard from again.

There's a fine line between saying, "Oh, I don't really get into that" and saying, "I don't do social media because I am above all that." One is a statement of fact while the other is an expression of smugness.

Instagram is a social networking app and city data is a social media platform :rolleyes

By stating you donít do selfies you perpetuate the stereotype that thatís all instagram is.

I use twitter to adot status reports while traveling and any local emergencies in real time. These platforms are as good or as bad as the people using them.

I've thought about deleting my facebook. Haven't really decided yet. I prefer actual person to person interaction. It's nice being able to stay in touch with current local events in the area. I was even thinking maybe deleting it and setting up another FB account just for that but use an anonymous name so people that know me can't find me on FB. So, I won't be clueless what is going on in the community.

C-D is "social media" in a way but the difference is on FB, you don't really have conversations on a range of topics unless you're in a FB group. And C-D is anonymous.

CD forum and a couple of gardening forums are the full extent of online social media for me. I don't have accounts with any other kind of social media. I do all my other socializing on a face to face basis or else by talking on the telephone to people that I know personally.
