I remember back in the day, when I was dating someone & we took intimate pictures, they were taken with a Polaroid camera & handed to the other person. No negatives to be "lost"or copied at a film lab, or pictures being accidentally sent electronically to the wrong person, no getting hacked on some social media site. Old fashioned safety!!

I had one of my social media accounts hacked a few years ago that created a major headache for me, decided to delete the account, and have not joined new programs since then that demand personal information. I believe that protection of personal information on these sites is too easy for aggressive hackers to access and too hard for companies to protect. My family and I text photos, videos, and messages. It seems safer than snapchap or instagram.

I have Instagram. Love it, easier to share pictures than say FB. Easier to stay in touch with family and friends.

Never say I can't or won't. Life presents interesting challenges every day. Embrace them.

I find snapchat too time consuming; I don't want to watch the "story" videos on instagram either. But the regular instagram accounts are wonderful. Some of my favorites are PhotosofBritain, InteriorMilk, ArtfulReader, Amali.Mou, National_Gallery and StyleAtACertainAge. You can find accounts for almost any interest. I love looking at the beautiful images each morning; they are inspiring! I have an UpperHandsPiano instagram account where I give away free sheet music and practice tips. It's another nice way to connect with people who share your interests Smiley Happy

I have Snapchat and love it.  My kids send me pictures and add the location graphic and I can keep up with them as they travel or in their eveyday travails.   I even paticipate when I am out visiting or finding a new place.

@s886065b - I wouldn't want to even be registered on social media I don't use, because it's just so easy to people to copy anything that's public, and create a bogus profile using your material. Or they can create a profile using a variation of your name, and you wouldn't even realize it! Watch "Catfish" on MTV a couple of times; for sure you'll close any accounts you aren't actively using or watching carefully!


To protect myself from this (you know, as best I can), I never use my real name in a profile, never even type in my phone number.  I give up nuttin. Smiley Happy

I use Instagram for fun and entertainment. So far I have never had a problem. As with anything, there will be ones who use and ones who abuse. You also need to be cautious and never supply any personal information for public viewing. Be careful, also, who you follow and who you allow to follow you. It is a nice form of comunication and a great way to easily share vacation pictures with friends and family. I don't have SnapChat only because I don't want another account with another login and yet another password. Haha!
