    1. I still have a FB account, but just to keep in touch with my friends and family members through Messenger. I understand how you’re not a big fan 😉 Personally, I think that twitter is worse, because, people seem more prone to be agressive and offensive because of how easy it is to have a totally anonymous account. Thank you for sharing, Rushi 🙂

    1. That’s interesting, Paula 🙂 I must admit that I enjoy Instagram more than Facebook and Twitter. Then again, aside a couple of advertizing sites, I only see posts from friends and users related to traveling and Denmark… So I don’t get the kind of stuff you’re talking about, but I know there is a LOT of it. I don’t mind Facebook, but I got bored of it a couple of years back (I much prefer the community we have here on WordPress) and I never really liked Twitter, because I’ve seen way too much pointless arguing on it. But hey! It just proves that they all have their place online 🙂 xx

    1. Did you hate it from the start, or did you grow to hate it, Thomas? I must say, I enjoyed it in the first years… I found a lot of long gone friends. But after a while, I just got bored… And I discovered blogging, which is much more satisfying to me 😉

      1. Everything was fine, I enjoyed Facebook immensely. Then I became successful, and was able to retire early (at 38!), and married the woman of my dreams. Those two events caused almost every one of my friends to simply abandon me out of nowhere. And it’s fucking depressing, to be honest. If I didn’t have a blog of my own, I probably wouldn’t have any interaction with the world at all.

      2. That is terrible… I get why you hate it now. But I’m glad you found WordPress, because it gave me the chance to connect with you in this blogging adventure 🙂 xx

    1. And mine too, Sonofa-Cha-Cha! I do have an account, but I only used it briefly. At first, it felt restraining, because of the short messages you could post, and after a while I just witnessed so much agressivity and hatred from anonymous people, that I decided it wasn’t for me. I’m sure it’s not all bad, but I don’t want to be a part of it anymore 😉

      1. I hear ya’. The keyboard courage is outta hand. I’ve heard, from all of my friends that use Twitter, that it is exactly as you stated. No matter what they put out there, the haters show up…and it’s people they don’t even know! God forbid you post an opinion about anything. I don’t know. I have a hard enough time dealing with the assholes in person on a day-to-day basis. I’m sure not gonna invite virtual, anonymous shitheads into my home every night. I’ll pass.

    1. Hahahahahaha I think the same way, Anne! I do have a Twitter account, but I only used it for a couple of months… I just didn’t get the point, and there was too much negativity for my liking.

    1. I must say that I really enjoy Instagram, but my content and the people I follow all share artistic stuff and not pictures of our lives… But I know that some Instagramers are going way too far for the ”likes” and the ”follows”. I’m glad you mentionnend Tik Tok. It is an awefull mess of useless stuff, but I still find it highly addictive. And I am following a couple of people who promote good self esteem and selfless kindness… So it is not all bad, but I get what you are saying 😉

  1. I am still a stranger to most forms of social media. But I sometimes see colleagues on their break laughing at TikTak which I still don’t really get. Tweeting sometimes seems a way to upset people and drop controversial opinions. Instagram I kind of understand – it is like a public photo album. Facebook I never used, but I can see why some wanted to set themselves up with a profile a front door/porch to your life in a way.

    I just worry about people abandoning their security and over-sharing things they would later regret. I also think it is sad, or in some cases criminal, when people use social media in a cruel, divisive, abusive or harmful way. It think there really really needs to be more external regulation with the powers to intervene with content.
