For those of you who don’t know me, I have almost zero Social Media, apart from Google+ and YouTube (only to watch videos) which I never use. I don’t have Instagram, Twitter, Musicly, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest etc. I want to give my reasons why I don’t like and don’t have social media. Remember this is just MY opinion, others definitely have their own ones.
Why don’t I have social media?
Most of my friends are on social media and yes, I am fine with that, but sometimes it can be a bit weird when everyone is on their phones and posting pictures and stuff while I’m just sitting there and observing, I know what you’re saying in your mind at this very moment, why don’t you just get social media? I don’t want it, I don’t want to be staring at my phone, talking to my fake friends when my real friends are sitting right there. I know this is the 21st century and it’s hard to explain but it just doesn’t feel right, social media. I know it’s a good way to keep up with friends and trends and stuff but I don’t want my waking hours to be contaminated by social media, by comments from random people, by updates and ads. I don’t want to become obsessed with what people think about me and what I like, because I don’t give a pineapple about what people think and I don’t want that to change. I don’t want to be encouraged by what looks are ‘trending’ right now, I don’t want to be made into a fake, a plastic doll which can only move if someone does it for them. I don’t want any of my secrets to be spilled, it happens, I know it happens. I prefer to be in control of my own life and I like to keep it that way. No persuading from anyone will change my mind about not having social media. I know social media isn’t bad and in the comments you will be telling me it isn’t bad, I just don’t want it.
Thanks for reading,
I hope you enjoyed what I have written and have gotten an idea of what social media is for me.
