    I use social media.

    Actually its a part of my job. But I am not addicted. I only spent very less time on social networks. Only when on job time (when the job demands). The rest of the time I would be engaged in reading or chatting with roommates. By chatting means literally face to face.

    I am not addicted. In fact, I am not obsessed with how many likes or retweets and shares I get for my profile. I maintain social media accounts only being updated from my old, long-distant friends.

    I also keep a particular time frame for the engagement.
     
  2. To me, social media is the ultimate downfall of humanity, and it has been since Facebook was new.

    What worries me the most is how Zuckerberg looks brainwashed by some sort of entity. Be it government or private, at his hearing about privacy it was blatantly obvious something is not right.

    When I was young we had no smartphones, no apps, no google nor social media and I survived it happily.

    Today's generation is like... "wait you don't track your child with your smartphone, what's wrong with you?!! I think there should be a minimum in trust in your own child and if your kids is really going to use social media, you should teach your kid how dangerous it could be and that the real world isn't bad too.

    When I was young, we needed a huge antenna to pick up only two TV stations. Yes, Star Trek was on one of them ;)

    And there was a Television Code in those days...

    LOL. That usually happens to me when I chug down twelve Romulan ales in a row. :roflmao:

    Just as long as it's a green alien female and not a green alien transvestite I'm OK with it. :biggrin:

    I do in some way or another. Some more than others, like Telegram and Twitter every thing else like Whatsapp, Instagram, Facebook etc.no
    Always trying to limit the amount of information I disclose even when in conversation with colleagues. When Facebook wanted to verify my account by requesting copies of authenticating documents and what not, I gave them the middle finger.

    If you really want to give them the middle finger, Close and delete all your accounts with Social Media. Where or who sez we must have "Social Media" anyway? Tell'em all to f**k off and live like we did before "Social Media" existed.
    (That means going out and meeting people personally and creating real life relations)

    Some people would consider MDL forums as "social media" too, they come online every day, check posts and whatnot.

    hmm for me the MDL is not a social media but the best place in the world to learn more about Windows & Linux and also collaborate in the best possible way also ...
