...since I quit social media. 
 

Who else has done the deed and cut themselves off from the cacophony of what I call anti-social media? 
 

I can only imagine how bad the panic is right now with Coronavirus. How many armchair politicians are arguing for their oh-so-wise solutions, how the perpetually offended clutch their pearls when the potential origin is spoken of, and how many trolls are trying to stir up both parties.

I use it but only for specific purposes.  I don't have to worry about all that other crap with the people, companies, groups that I subscribe to, etc. I'm not really big on hanging out on these things but I do use them for information I'm interested in, family, professional relationships, etc.  

Social media can be very helpful as long as you use it to your advantage.  Even on Facebook I don't accept many of the friend requests that I receive.  I also don't share a lot of information on there but I do connect with friends (real friends) and family.

I really only use it when I can just talk to people. I don't see it as a bad thing as long as you don't take any of the information given to you seriously. As its most likely false.

My dad is absolutely obsessed with Facebook and all it did was turn me off to it even more. Last thing I care to deal with is someone getting butthurt because I wouldn't accept a friend request sent by their father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate that I've never met.

I only really use Twitter as an agregator for news and articles from accounts I'm interested in.  I browse Facebook occasionally, but it's mostly people bragging about how shallow they are.  I have to admit a mild addiction to wood-turning videos.
