So true for the bolded part.

Obviously everyone here uses social media. I must say that it's a little ironic to ask that question here.

But we're anoymous. I'm not putting my real self out there though. People don't know who I am.

I don't consider city-data to be social media. More like opinion-on-random-topics-with-total-strangers media.

I don't engage in social media because I have seen its effects on others, i.e. addiction to iphone.

Most social media is anonymous.

Not facebook. I know some use their real names on twitter, pinterest, and instagram. Some even post pics of themselves.

Actaully, CD is more informationally then social because the intention of the majority of people here is exchanging information/views rather than waste each other's time needless chit chat about their personal lives that most of us can care less

I'm starting to consider forums social media just because I'm being social on here and I'm also experience the same mental fatigue I get when visiting Fb, etc. In fact, I'm more social on here than I am on fb just because there's questions to answer whereas fb is....people trying to be relevant. Not saying that doesn't happen here, I just learn more here than I do on fb.

Some use their real names on CD as well. Same with Reddit. Facebook lends itself to be a place where people use their real identities. But most social media sites like CD, Twitter, Reddit, chatroulette, AOL chatrooms, IRC, etc. don't necessarily require or involve real identities.
