    What social media do you use and how much a part of your life is it?

  • #2
    I use Facebook because we live away from most of our families. My son and Daughter and husband live in another part of the country as does my In-laws. It keeps me in touch with them and with the news of our families. I also have an Instagram account but I don't really use it that much. How much a part of my life is it? I'm on daily although not all day. I pop on and off and check various other things such as my machine embroidery groups and health care groups that I am a part of. And then of course, I pop in here as well.

      Facebook, just to keep in touch with family and friends who don't live close by. I usually look daily but rarely post.

          This is the only forum I often post to. I follow friends, family and music on Facebook.
          I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.

          Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

            I have Facebook. Look at it daily but rarely post. Same with Instagram.
            I am on one other forum as well, but it's a young crowd. I am exercising that maternal side in that forum!

            I really just don't know how people have the time or energy to take and post pics daily or multiple times daily. And the update for what they're doing every few hours!
            I have FB only on my tablet, not my phone so it doesn't go with me everywhere.

              I have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram on my mobile phone which I use most of the time. Apart from that I'm just using few Forums on my system to keep in touch with other people on Internet..

                feel like I'm missing out by not being on FB
                school is putting a lot of pics on FB; everyone on both sides of family are on FB
                but I still don't want to put my name out there

                asked hubs if he'd sign up but he doesn't want me to go and join groups with his name (which I'd prob want to)
                do wish we could see the school pics

                  Corporations don't follow their own rules. Does that make you bound to follow their arbitrary rules? If you want, you can make up a stage name. No phone number. Minimum gmail contact. Minimum data about you. Let them come after you. I have friends who cannot use their stage names that they have used for almost 40 years. What a shame. Their stage names are more them than their real names. I prefer anonymity.

                    Facebook & this forum. Facebook connects me with family & friends all over the world! I've found & been found with family I didn't know I had!

                    I love being able to chat with family & friends who are overseas in real time. I've chatted with a nephew when he was stationed in Kuwait!! Right now a friend in Germany & I chat several times a week. It's great being able to stay connected.
                    You are worthy!

                      It is an online world we live in. Unfortunately it rules us.

                      I enjoy fb but wish it wasn't what it's become.

                        I use Facebook; this forum, other forums; Instagram; YouTube, etc. I use my computer daily and like to keep in touch with the world. Social media is the best way to do this.

                          we don't have to let it rule us

                          on second thought maybe I just don't need FB

                            Instagram to keep in touch with friends, Facebook to keep in touch with family members and older relatives.

                              I love Instagram, Sylviee. It is a much easier website to navigate than Pinterest. I had well over 25,000 pins on Pinterest and it took me 3 to 4 years. Not so with Instagram. Anyhow, Facebook is an excellent source of information and I post daily, although I only re-post official photos. I do love social media.
