    Omg I can totally relate. :rofl:Then you don't want to give your number and it gets all awkward. :unsure:
    :five: No social media life is good.
    Yea I know and then you meet someone you like so you have to brainstorm how to keep in contact lol But I find only it becomes an issue online. No one in real life is really that caring. Because they see you everyday so whatever lol the only time it was a mess was when a professor wanted us to contact each other on Facebook :mute: I threw one together real quick but didn't put my real name or spell it correctly, didn't upload photos or make my profile public lool I just signed in to get updates on like exam times and whatnot, the derp

    Not really. I think sometimes social media has fizzled out out as everyone just shares 'funny photos' and never really talk to people.

      Well, I've forgotten my Facebook password. Never went on it since ...What- like 3 years?
      Detest Twitter- only ever went on it to see the edexcel out roar last year. It was Hilarious I must admit.
      Instagram- had it for a while. Got bored & deleted.
      Snapchat- yea.

      I don't think this makes me weird.
      Then again, I never know what's going on, on social media .
      Guess that's what friends are for.

      Then again, some people consider TSR as social media. :lol:
      Me too! I have a Linked In (if that counts) and TSR!

      I personally wouldn't, but I understand why others are surprised.

      I don't use any typical social media - namely Facebook/Twitter. The most I have is a tumblr blog which is about it.

      It isn't strange at all, I used no social media and had never even owned a smartphone until I started university.

      I'd just sometimes think it's a bit sad with good friends, as it'd make it harder to share photos with them, or for both of us to stay updated on each other's lives, or to post photos of us on these platforms (a lot of people with no social presence also don't want photos of themselves online). So in some ways I feel like they're missing out, and that I am too by extension; that a social media user would be more engaging and fun as a friend... Perhaps that's all a little bit superficial and untrue. I was quite happy back in my social media-free days. But there you go.

      My online presence is limited to a couple of forums and XBOX Live.

      There's too many self-obsessed people on Facebook and Twitter who feel they have to broadcast their entire life to the world.

      I don't have any social media either- I've never really understood the point of having Facebook and not that many people really use it. I don't tend to take lots of photos so I don't use Instagram either. I think not having social media gives me more time to actually spend with my close friends and socialise with them.

      I get why some people think it's a bit weird, but to be honest, with exams round the corner, I think fewer distractions is probably better!

      I've had a teacher taking my number, but never heard of a professor wanting to contact through Facebook. :rofl:

      It's so annoying when people tell you to make an Twitter/Facebook/IG account. I keep saying yeah this summer I will and never do.

      I used to use Twitter a lot back in the day. Glad to say I'm done with it. :ahee:

      :five: It's best to stay away from it tbh.

      TSR chat forums, PMS and VMs are known as social media. :lol:

      Your number? Hm that's kind of normal I guess lol but the Facebook thing?! Really?! So glad he's gone and I hate him.
      Yea I know like, "ok. I'l' subject myself to random stranger's opinions about my looks and give them an inside look at my personal life while I'm at it, sure thing. I'll get on that right now."

      LOL I did Tiwtter. And it was ****. Like after a while it feels like you're talking to yourself. I got sexted when I was 14 anyway and have been catfished/people lying to me/people taking my pics without permission, so that really has made me cautious.

      I don't have any social media accounts. I get sick of having to justify myself. Usually the people who demand explanation are the ones who live through social media and have no identity or personality outside of it.
