doesn't use any social networking sites at all? I have a Facebook account (mainly because I was forced to make one) but I never actually use it all, no pictures or anything. I only really use stuff Kik and Whatsapp to stay in touch with people.

Tbh I don't see the point in making one now since everyone else already has their accounts with hundreds of followers and tweets and I won't have any.

I despise Facebook and don't have a Twitter etc. Mainly because I'm surrounded by filth and I don't want to see them or hear about their lives any more than I have to in actual real life.

I don't see the point of it, I don't want to start comparing myself to others and getting hung up over it.

Don't use them, prefer Whatsapp to stay in touch. I don't care if someone had alphabetti spaghetti for lunch, I don't care if someone has stripy socks on, I don't care if you went out and "omgzz had bes nite of mi lyef" and the rest of the crap people put on Facebook

I have accepted social media into my life as a necessary evil.

Don't use it. Think going through all that trouble to put everything that you do online is in a sense pointless. I just use texts or Skype to contact friends.

I don't get why everyone is so against social media.Honestly it's been so helpful for me, I keep in touch with all my friends, it makes group work at uni x10 easier, I got an internship through twitter and built up blog following through instagram. Use it right and it's great


I must admit I'm not one of those people that needs to check in at starbucks or post ridiculous emotional statuses though, I hate those people, but it's a good place to store photos from special occasions etc

Unless you count forums, no. I had a Facebook account for a little while but nobody I knew used theirs so I didn't really see much point in keeping it open. I tried to use it but just found it so boring.

I don't like having my personal details up on display for any layperson to see, although I made it so my account wasn't searchable I didn't really feel secure. Also I didn't want to post anything personal, and I'm not really that into anything so I didn't have any interests to decorate my profile with.

I'm not sure if you're talking to me, but I merely pointed out that I don't use them, I didn't criticise them.

I just wanted to see how common it was that someone wouldn't really use social networking sites.

I have no social networking sites because I am a complete loner and that is the way I like it.

This is the only thing that I would class as socialising, even then I don't talk to people.

Well,I find it very productive.As I am a International student far from my family,friends,cousins etc.I would rather prefer to post "What I am upto?"in facebook and all the other blah blah things instead of whatsapp or whatever and it depends on you,like in what way do you use it.I use it in a very productive manner where I can connect to important people!And I don't find anything usless to be on facebook.
