    I don't have Instagram.

    Hardly use Snapchat.


    I guess not everyone is comfortable with Instagram. You have to want to show yourself off.

    Snapchat is only as personal as you want it to be. Get it just in case.

    Instagram is great. I think it is better than Facebook or Twitter.

    Sadly many of its users are not. It is the easiest place to single people out and make their lives a misery.

    If you actively hate them then there's no need to compromise.

    I guess people in certain circles do have snapchat but if that's not your thing then don't worry about it.

    Nobody will think your weird at all, lots of people don't use them.
    I have used all of them but my New Years resolution was to uninstall everything as I didn't want to live my life through a screen. I've stuck it to so far! Quite proud tbh. Although I do come on here quite a lot but hey that's different :P I find this more rewarding. I think those apps are way more popular with the younger teens, a lot of people 18-25 seem to give up with that stuff. I can't bear it when people are constantly on their phones, especially at meals or even worse the cinema! I try to set aside a time in the day when I can sit, relax and text friends, do some online shopping/ browsing, check emails and come on here etc.

    Yeah the reason I hate them is because in highschool when it became popular,many people in the group I was hanging out with started to become extremely obnoxious with the app taking selfies every 10 mins and posing for snapchats. I seriously wish these apps never existed and I will never download them
