I turned off my facebook page almost 2 years ago, never went back and never missed it for one second.

I have never tried snapchat or instagram. All I have is a hockey twitter page, and youtube if that counts.

You?

I think that's wise; if I were to use a social media platform it would probably be Facebook.  I wouldn't touch Twitter with a  10-foot pole; seems to me it's nothing but a haven for trolls.  Not to mention the whole character limit concept seems to be corrupting the English language; people now think it's ok to use Twitter abbreviations in business communication and as an English major I find that very irritating.

I have never used any social media and I honestly probably never will. Just not my thing.

Now that I think about it, let me know when someone invents "anti-social media" - where people who hate social media congregate.  I might be interested in that.

Never have had any FB or Twitter and have not a care to.

I see zero point in them, but of course I am not starved for attention either.

I live 100's/1000's miles away from my home state so I have family and friends that really I can only keep up via facebook, so I grudgingly have that. I keep my friends to under 50, however...and most of them are muted.

Lol only reason I even have Twitter is because I was trying to contact the AZ Diamondbacks about something they did that pissed me off. So I wanted to talk directly to Derrick Hall the DBax CEO. It actually worked, and he even invited me to his office to discuss my issue. I'm sure it was lip service, but who knows. Told him I'd be right there, but he would have to pay for my plane ticket since I live in Seattle.

And no, I don't remember what it was that had me so fired up. This was at least ten years ago. I'm actually surprised my Twitter account still works.

The only place I interact "socially" is right here with you wankers. I thought about joining Facebook a few times but never bothered.

I tried it once years ago when it was still somewhat new.
Now I’m kind of glad I got rid of it! It’s just a time consuming waste. The main guy Mark Suckerberg was caught selling private info to other corporations and agencies. It’s like a thinly veiled spy network.

I've sort of wondered if I was leading a "cloistered life" by not diving into this social media crap but based on the responses in this thread it sounds like I'm not missing anything. 

Granted most here are old farts like me (OK, maybe I'm an "older" fart than most) but the responses in this thread confirm that I'm probably not missing anything by abstaining from the whole "social media" world.

You’re definitely not missing much imo. Maybe it could be somewhat useful for the few that only use it for keeping in touch with family.

Remember your profile had a song that you could play when somebody visited your profile? Myspace was way better.

This board is a form of social media. So I say yes to "other social media". My opinion of Facebook is it usually becomes a drama magnet for those I know that use it. I chose not to use Facebook and can still use the thing on the wall to communicate with friends and family. I don't use a cell phone either.

I still use Facebook, but usually only for a couple of minutes a day, usually to post something stupid about what music I listened to during my daily exercise walk, or to pimp my latest HubPage blog entry. I purposely keep my FB as silly and inconsequential as possible. No politics, no religion, nothing about my job.

I have a Tumblr blog but it's basically a repository for my movie capsule reviews (I just copy and paste the same ones I post on this forum) so I can keep track of how many movies I've watched.

I don't Instagram (my kids and wife do, though) and I was on Twitter for about five minutes a few years ago -- long enough to decide "Nope, this is not for me."
