What's my take on it? I think certain Social Media websites are amazing. (Not including Facebook) -.- The only social media websites I use is Youtube and Crunchyroll. Unless Twitch counts. I believe social media became popular because it's so much easier to talk to one another and show each other videos and such.

I'm exactly the same. I used to be REAL big on it. Posting Statuses every Day. But now I'm lucky if I Post one Once a Week. From Hot or Not to Facebattle, to Realpics, to Myspace, to Facebook. So goes the ways or Social Media! Crunchyroll is My Home these Days, and I love My Home and all of My fellow "Dorm-mates!"

Haha I never ended up getting Facebook... No real good reason why, just never did!

Might soon though, we'll see...
Things I use more are a heck of a lot of emails and texts/messages, a little snapchat and some crunchyroll (if that counts :P)

I enjoyed myspace when I was a teenager. I was excited about Facebook when I first started using it. Its blown up to such huge proportions now that I find getting on there makes me feel like I've just taken a nap and had a horrible nightmare. I can read posts by hundreds of friends and not feel like I've learned anything about them, or interacted with them in anyway. It seems an enormous waste of time. I do like that it is a way to connect with people you have not seen in a long time through sharing photos, and instant messenger.

I do not use social media because socializing is not my fore-take. Though I do have some social media, I rarely use it simply because it doesn't interest me as much as other things. Unless CrunchyRoll, and HummingBird count as social media, in which case I use them all the time.

I think that the public uses social media and it's become so big is because humans are social creatures. Socializing is one of the many specialties of humans, and the idea of being able to communicate with many people with similiar interests certainly erupt in popularity. I mean using social media allows you to connect you with other people that share interests from around the globe. There of course are some exceptions to this, like myself and I believe a few others.

Course my idea and usage of social media could change in the future, but you never know.

i absolutely hate facebook, everytime i see my friend's using it it reminds me why i hate it in the first place, people share the dumbest things on the planet, and it's a herd shallow people, and if you're a guy with an instagram account, you need to do some rethinking in your life.
besides that i use Twitter because it's an amazing gateway to interesting articles if you don't use it to follow celebrities.

I think using social media a bit isn't bad. However, It's gotten extremely irritating. I'm tired of hearing about "selfies".... I'm tired of seeing people constantly on their phones! I do use Youtube+Tumblr A LOT though!! It's quite addicting

I have Facebook, but very rarely use it to talk to people, update my status or anything like that. It's there for group conversations to make it easier to organize events and social outings that I happen to be invited to.

On the other hand, I use Crunchyroll and Tumblr a lot.

I managed to go way too long without using social media, the same as I managed without a mobile phone or other things people take for granted but I managed to cave in the end and set up a facebook account.

It serves the purpose for me of keeping up to date with my bands and knowing when they are touring locally. I have over a thousand bands on there so it definitely is important.

As for the whole 'socialising' aspect. I mainly just link stupid youtube videos or talk a load of nonsensical, non-important gibberish on there and get absolutely sick and tired of reading about other peoples problems and motivational posters or surveys over why 'men are dicks', etc, etc.

I think people use it for the wrong reasons. They post all day about the most mundane crap and beg for attention from other people. I definitely could have lived without it and I almost want to delete about 90% of my friends list just to make the whole experience a little more pleasant.

I use FB, deviantART, Youtube, CR (obviously), and... I think Anime Characters Database counts, too. Used to use Tinierme.

I don't mind them. They have their uses and I utilize them for several, so I've little to complain about.

Youtube to keep track of videos I like, deviantART for following artists, ACD for keeping tabs of character designs I like and tracking down characters... I don't really socialize on those. As for FB; gaming, keeping up with a few relatives and old friends, sharing websites and recipes with my mom and sisters, and I chat every now and then. It's CR that I like to reserve for online socialization. Despite that, I'm not much of a chatterbox here, either. I also use CR to take note of anime that are coming out, and various other news.

I find it laughable when I come across people who exaggerate social media's value, whether in a positive or negative light.

Hey I use FB, tumblr, and youtube a lot, but I find it very annoying for me now to be on multiple social media sites. Especially FB, and tumblr where I don't even make my self talk to people unless my friends are online. I think there should be a time limit for these websites to make everyone do something more productive rather than sitting and scrolling through the newsfeed because you get nothing from it anyway, besides news and the such.
