I don’t have Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, etc. I just don’t feel like I need any of them. My life is pretty mundane and unexciting. I’m fairly certain people don’t want to hear about my job or the fact that I went to the gym and the grocery store. The internet doesn’t need to be inundated with my selfies. I text and call and send pictures to the few people I think might actually be interested.

I don’t have any of those.  Older bee, we are homesteaders and keep that type of stuff away from our lives best we can.  Now the bee has become a real treat for me these last months, and I do a lot of online reading but not fb, snap, all those.  First off my phone is the old flip type that doesn’t really do much!

I don’t understand the concept of Snap chat. Like people seriously need to snap pics of everything they do and put it for others to see? Ugh…I hate that everyone has become  so consumed with social media and letting others know or see what they are doing every second of the day.

I used to be really active on a purse forum and there’s a fish forum I occasionally post on but apart from that, I don’t do social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the like.

I have a twitter account which I don’t use as often as I used to but I gave up facebook two years ago and I found that I really don’t miss it. I am also in the “I don’t understand snap chat” camp

Just deleted my FB about two months ago.  Never had a Snapchat, IG, or Twitter account.  Am applying to jobs right now and am not a frequest FB user, so I just decided to deactivate it.  Don’t miss it at all.

I have all the usual social media accounts (FB, IG, Snapchat, and the like), although I’m not a very active user. Just had to chime in for those who say they can’t understand Snapchat — the appeal is the filters! I don’t think I’ve ever actually sent a snap to anyone, but the dog filter and the Coachella filter and the deer filter…<3 <3 <3

I don’t. I’m just honestly not interested in it. 😛

I have Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter. I’ve never discussed my job, the gym or the grocery store, there are no selfies, and I also text and call my nearest. You don’t have to like social media (I’m not the biggest fan myself) but it’s rude to stereotype.

One of my SO’s best friends is really into updating his Facebook status, check-in, location, whatever info you call it. For example, he’ll post random stuff about how crowded it is at IKEA that very moment and how the cashier is too slow while waiting in the checkout line from his phone. Well, he just left for a long vacation to another country and he posted on Facebook his complete 3-week itinerary along with dates and a map. I wouldn’t be surprised if he comes home to an empty apartment.
