  • Pretty sure a lot of folks don't realize it. I barely touch Facebook any more, and I use Twitter for work only.

  • Yeah, I don't get how they don't see this as a social media sight. There is almost more bullshit on here than on FB at times.

  • I never use that term "social media". I just say I don't go on Facebook or twitter etc. I have no need for them. I have no distant family that I would keep in touch with over Facebook & I don't have the need to keep in contact with H.S. people who I wasn't friends with 20 years ago. Nor do I feel the need to have every thought in my head published immediately for others to read. I just come here for the entertainment & to learn a few things occasionally. No one knows who I am & I like my privacy as opposed to the previous "social media" mentioned.

  • I don't think I brag about not doing social media. I just, stating facts, don't care for or frequent Facebook, and I've never gotten involved with Twitter or Pinterest. I think Pinterest is mostly for pics anyway and not text, so it wouldn't work for me. CM is a social site, a chat site. I didn't know it fell under social media, but it makes sense that it does. The topics here are interesting to me, so I come. FB is irrelevant to me and very inaccessible to my screen reader, so I don't use it.

  • Depends are they specifically saying "Social media" because yeah that makes them look like a bunch of morons. If it is a specific one such as saying I don't "do pinterest" then well that's specific to that particular site.

  • I am on cafemom and Facebook. That is it. I tried the others. They are just not me.


    But it depends on how they said what they don't do. "Social media" or a specific media.

  • Saying you don't do FB isn't really bragging is it? It's just stating a preference to what sites you visit. This is a more private type of interaction since you don't have to use your real name.

  • LOL, it does seem silly doesn't it? All it proves to me is that they don't do social media as "themselves".

  • Any site you visit where there's interaction with others is social media.
