    Nothing wrong with that. I used to be addicted to it, but I never use it anymore. But stil, having Facebook to get in connect with courses mates for example is handy.

    These days, I just use Instagram and snapchat from time to time :mmm:

    I only use Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter. :moon:

    I would kind of find it a bit weird if they didn't have any but its nothing to be fussed about
    if they didn't have any social media.

    Would you think it's strange if someone in this day of age had no social media accounts? No kind of online presence at all?

    No

    If they don't have Skype, Whatsapp only then is it fishy.

    To be honest I have Facebook and instagram to pree. I am one of those people that has had the same Facebook profile picture for years and I upload pictures on insta every few months. I have like 40 followers on twitter, half of them I do not know and they've just followed me. I've been on twitter for years and haven't bothered to search for anyone I know. I've realised I only ever tweet when i'm hungry or tired. Never really been one to divulge every detail of my day to day life.

    All in all everyone I need to be in contact with is on my what's app list. It was actually really refreshing to be in a relationship with someone with no online presence, so no I don't find it weird.

    No i dont...
    i have no online presence at all and want it to stay that way.
    nothing comes up if you google my name except an art award i got once
    That's an awesome life! I'm sure people don't know that when you post stuff on the internet other databases automatically get it and post it without your permission as well. Especially if you don't keep it private. Unless you're a celebrity why do that? And if it's private there's still randos out there doing god knows what ...to your waffle with ice cream photo lol

    Nope, not at all. I would consider it more intriguing if they didn't have an email address or a mobile phone, however.

    I don't have social media, or rather I don't use social media, my facebook profile is still up there, somewhere, but there is a story behind that. I have wondered what would people think of me or expect of me when they find out I don't bother

    I only have Facebook and Twitter. I barely use them tbh.
    I don't think it's strange. Life doesn't evolve around social media.

    I might as well be one of those people. I have Twitter and FB accounts I rarely ever use. I still don't even know what Instagram and some of these other ridiculous ones are. I just post on the odd forum like here, Imdb and DS.

    Only use TSR and snapchat... No need for any other social networking sites. If I need to know what my mates are doing, they'll tell me. And I don't really care if a celeb has coffee for breakfast

    I used to be a social media addict. I used to use twitter and facebook all the time, I stopped using them now I have lost in contact with my school friends I want to start using twitter again but it's so hard to get back on it because I haven't used it in nearly a year now
    I also don't have an instagram because I look weird/ugly in pictures but for some reason, everyone assumes I have one?!

    I'd consider it admirable. Social media is poison.

    You said social media is poison on a social media platform. Not too difficult to understand.
