Social Media. - June 30th 2019, 09:36 PM

So, this kinf of have become a huge part of our lives in the past decade. Ten/fifteen years ago (if you are old enough) we were using platforms like Myspace, Friendster, Hi5, maybe even Orkut if you bypassed the country filter.

But now we have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Snapchat, and more I might not know about.

So, the question is this: What social platform do you use the most?

I voted Facebook but it was a close call between that and Twitter. I use Facebook mostly for keeping in touch with friends and finding out about stuff in my area or certain interests. Twitter is purely for my interests but I still log in daily. I don't really use instagram much but I love scrolling through all the photos from the people I follow as they are usually nature or animal photos I rarely use snapchat except from when I'm with my friend as she likes to take pictures and mess around

I'm actually late to the social media scene as I only joined social media in 2011 and never used myspace, bebo etc.

I definitely use Facebook the most due to Facebook Messenger and a lot of the tag groups. I'm in a lot of childfree ones.
The one I use the second most is Tumblr but I don't interact with people on it (minus the people I already knew off of Tumblr?). Like I don't interact with random followers or anything.
I use Instagram and Snapchat sometimes but not super often.
I don't use Twitter at all.

I use Instagram a lot! I have a Facebook but I also have a lot of family on there, so I regulate my usage of it. I am active on a couple of Facebook groups, which is of like minded people with similar interests and activism. I deleted Snapchat a couple of months ago, since the people I had on there, I could also keep in touch with on WhatsApp and the above mentioned apps. Never used tumblr or twitter, I think I have an account on both but I haven't used them since I registered.

I picked Facebook but I think I use Facebook and Instagram the most.

I have a Twitter but I don't tend to get on that often. I mostly just follow authors and book tubers there anyway so there's nothing special.

I like Facebook cause I can keep up with old friends and some family.

Facebook is the only one that I use at the moment, but even that I don't post to. I'm pretty introverted, so I don't post a ton of personal updates on social media; I just use it to keep in touch with people.

I used to use SnapChat more when my sister lived at school (she liked to send me pictures), but now that she's home I don't use it at all. I'm not really a picture person, so neither SnapChat nor Instagram has a huge appeal for me. I also don't really like Twitter or Tumblr because people can get really intense and it seems like there are a lot of arguments.

So yeah, I guess I'm not really a social media person! I enjoy forums, though. Quora is another site that is pretty neat; I have used that before.

The only social media account that I use is Snapchat. I don’t use Facebook or Instagram or Twitter and I prefer it that way. I’m not someone who likes to take pictures or post of themselves but I like that I can control who in my family can see what I post or send them. It also allows me to keep in contact with friends as well as see their posts.

Just realized I didn't vote on my own poll.

I'm pretty isolated as well on social media, as some of you have said.

I don't use any of the platform super religiously, mostly Facebook and Instagram; but even then the posts are rare and far in between. I can go weeks without posting on either IG or Facebook. Nearly all of my activity is restricted to messaging.

I think Tumblr and Twitter are too niche and just not my thing. I have an account, but never use either one of them. Never really got the hang of Snapchat and I don't care to.

I use Instagram a lot more then the others since I have three accounts I'm on regularly. I mainly use Facebook just to reading funny things and talking to a couple of people.

Twitter... I don't know what the heck happened to Twitter since yesterday, but I hate it.

Oh, well. Just going to cancel my accounts. No big loss on that playform.
