I haven't posted on my facebook page in about 5 years. I don't intend to, partially because I don't like people knowing too much about my life, partially because there is nothing interesting to say. I post the odd Instagram photo, mostly out of vanity if I think I look nice that day, but it's only on rare ocassion. I have thirty posts since I started my IG account in 2013. Anyway...
I just wanted to know, for those of you who do post a lot on social media, why do you do it? Is it for the number of likes you want? Is it to start an online discussion about something you wanted to share? Is it to show everyone that your life is great? Attention? Boredom? As a diary?
The reason I ask, is because I am seeing a lot of unnecessary posts on my news feed. Today, someone posted "I'm so tired". I don't know why her 400+ friends needed to know that. Or another friend that said last week "so late to work this morning" ... ok.
Is facebook a diary platform or something? So yeah..why do you post on social media?

When I was a little kid in the early years of secondary school I was a **** who only posted stuff on Facebook for likes
I grew up a little and got Twitter/Instagram and here's how I generally use them:
Twitter - going crazy during football matches and retweeting loads (it's just fun idk makes the match more social - duh), other than that I hardly tweet on it
Facebook: sharing random stuff that I find interesting (more just so I have it on my profile if I want to find it again)
Instagram: just for da memories
