    I can't keep it up long enough for it to be social.

    A lot of people don't have the internet, so no you're not alone.

    I do not know many people who do not. Despite using them myself, I recon the world will be a better place without them...

    I don't have them either because they are distracting although I feel like I'm missing out sometimes

    No. I deleted my facebook, twitter and bbm because I outgrew them and people usually annoyed me with some posts. I still have a social life. Having a social life online doesn't correlate to having one in real life.

    There's nothing strange... I deleted my facebook account 6 month ago and I don't miss it at all... I used to spend too much time on it. Sometimes social networks become a sort of slavery. Now I just use whatsapp and sometimes Twitter, but just to keep in touch with my friends.

    I think you mean being registered to a social networking website. If you have friends and family then you still have a social network, you've just abstained from telling a strange website about it.

    Facebook is a social necessity in this day and age if you want to stay socially important

    Most teenagers in third world countries probably don't have a social network account

    Oh do stop being so over-dramatic, OP. If you want to be "in the crowd", then get your account back and stop fretting.

    Facebook is not a social necessity. I still get invited to the biggest parties and events and what is even best is, I get direct invites not one on a mass event page. I get as many birthday wishes through calls and messages which means, people do not need facebook to remember my birthday. What were you saying about social importance? :rolleyes:
