Not a fan of social media personally. My sisters are Facebook nuts though, and when I went home for an early Christmas a couple weekends ago, when they came around a lot of their time was spent on FB.

Even my 5 year old niece is being corrupted by technology. When I was there (and bear in mind I see them maybe 3 or 4 weekends a year), she spent every minute on a tablet. Tablet died, and instead of playing around with the uncle she never sees, she migrated to a laptop to watch cartoons on Netflix. The 3 year old niece though was very playful though and we even sat for a bit and watched anime together lol.

My sisters get pissed at me because I never post anything on FB, but I don't really see the allure in doing so. If FB, Twitter, etc were gone tomorrow my life would go largely unchanged.

I used to feel this way, but then I went and lived in the wild for 6 months. The feeling of needing technology goes away after a week or 2.

Nope I'm too busy making boilies (for spring carp fishing) and watching anime.

I have developed a rather unnerving addiction to technology. The internet is such a big thing after all since it's pretty much the go to for anything these days. I use a PC for watching videos, anime, making music, recording voicework, writing, playing games and everything inbetween.

I hate social media it causes too many problems and everyone likes to put there business up on facebook when no one cares. Its too much drama. I actually get pissed everytime i go on facebook. Its all pictures of food, sluts doing selfies and people complaining. I really dont understand why people go on it all the time

the only social media i even use is tumblr, and that's just because there's a lot of cool art and fandom based stuff posted there.
besides that, i've never used social media, and don't really feel the need to.

I absolutely love and use technology all the time but...

I don't understand it one bit.

And social media sites are overrated, yet the epitome of convenience.

So I avoid them if possible.

Technology spoils us rotten and we at least need to cut back on it. It's come to a point where many kids don't even know how to hand write now that almost every kid owns an iPad and cell phone nowadays. I don't even like having internet data on my phone. Just call me old fashioned.

I've indulged in Facebook for a duration of almost a day many years ago, and Twitter for about a minute. So thankfully I didn't expose myself to it long enough to strip away what's left of my humanity, rendering me into another conformist fucking zombie.

That being said, I occasionally dabble in Miiverse but I don't take it seriously, and it's hardly the go-to point for social media addicts. I think anyone who subjects themselves to this shit shouldn't come to rely on it, and if they do, they'd better be able to muster up the resolve to not slash themselves when the plug is finally pulled.

I don't have any wireless smartphone, iPad, or anything else like that (unless the Wii U qualifies to some extent, and even then it's only used to check my e-mail from time to time) and I'm more than happy with it.

Edit: Google can suck and gurgle for trying to force me into using their shitty G+ bullshit too.

I have the same habit. You can usually find me messing around on an electronic device. With that said, though, I don't use social media on a regular basis.

I have a facebook, but only use it if i need to talk to someone. i have no twitter, reddit, tumblr or whatever that people are using.
i rarely text anyone and almost never call (i prefer face to face)
so i could live without a phone.
and for my computer i only use it to watch anime and nothing else. i use my computer so little that i never actually bought one but was forced to by my school.

i would be bored without internet (anime) but i have no need for them.
so all these phones, ipods, computers and what not., are really unnecessary for me.

If you have a business and you're using it for promotion, profit drive and clientele build then it makes sense having them. Hey, isn't Crunchyroll and YouTube considered social media too so then why is Facebook, Twitter and the such are being hit badly?
