Which ones do you use?

Am I the only one who doesn't have an account on any? I do read Twitter (mostly for hockey rumours), so I do use the service, but I haven't felt the need to create an account yet.

I've got a Facebook account, but only to keep in contact with family and friends back in the U.S. Outside of that, I don't use any of them. Between work, my kids, and my girlfriend, I don't really have time to faff about with them.

Not really interested in the vast majority of social media anyway, especially when watching whole groups of people standing around on their phones and shit instead of actually SOCIALIZING with the people right f*cking there!!

I have a Facebook account but don't really use it much (it's more my wife's account). I have no interest in any of the others.

I have accounts on Facebook and Pinterest.

I use the FB for keeping in touch w/old friends and posting goofy shit. No politics, no religion, just metal and other pop culture related nonsense.  

I originally started the Pinterest account to promote my blog but I never had much luck drawing traffic to my pages with it... so now I just use it as a bulletin board to save pictures that I like of hot women, old comic book covers, movie posters/artwork and rock & roll junk.

I have a Facebook account, but I don't post all that much, and I probably use it just as a diversion just to see if anything worthwhile has popped up in my newsfeed (which it usually hasn't). Although I do find it useful for keeping tabs on bands and knowing when they have a new album coming out.

I am also on Twitter, although I post even less there than on Facebook. The idea was that I was going to start a blog and post about it on Twitter rather than Facebook as I wanted to keep my blogging persona separate from my Facebook one, but I've yet to actually blog about anything and so I mainly use Twitter to get news headlines.

That was actually something I found quite useful during the Olympics as all the finals involving South African athletes were in the early hours of the morning, so I was able to wake up, pick up my phone and see quite quickly what had happened without having to wait for a news bulletin on the radio or go and hunt for the result online, which is more of an effort.

I was on Twitter for about a week a couple of years ago. The SyFy Channel was having a contest tied into "Sharknado 2" and the only way to enter it was via Twitter...so I signed up just to be in the contest.

I never even looked at my account again after that, but I kept getting e-mails telling me that "so-and-so is now 'following' you!" every so often for months afterward ... which was weird, since I had signed up under a stupid pen name and had absolutely NOTHING on my profile, haha.

Eventually I logged back into it just so I could delete the account...

Laughing very hard

If anyone ever needed proof that this board is comprised of geezers, this thread is it.  Twelve posts and 6 don't have a social media account.

I have a personal Facebook I use for messaging a couple friends but stopped using the rest of it a while back. The political shit just loaded me with depression. Making it more difficult is 90% of my friends and family live to be on a soapbox. I think the other 10% are on here haha.

None for me today and the answer will remain the same. No point to any of those sites unless of course you are an attention monger. Log off and use your phone for its purpose, making calls.
