I opened an Instagram account last week. I followed a bunch of artists, but haven't made one post. And I've been back once. I made the account in order to learn how Instagram marketing works. Once I've learned what I want to know, I'll delete the account. Smiley Happy

 

I may end up doing the same thing with Snapchat. Possibly Facebook. Maybe other social media platforms.

Good example: A friend posted about a relative's recent medical procedure at a hospital on social media. Many friends passed on their good wishes, said they'd pray for the person, etc. I called after the person was home from the hospital, and they said that for all the good wishes & prayers posted on social media, I was the only one who actually called to see how they were doing!


Good example..   like no one sends birthday cards anymore much, just posts to the person's accounts.  Times have really changed.

@LaDolceVita - All social media is a time-suck, although all the nasty & overwhelming political discussions have made AARP less enjoyable than it used to be.

Dont use either.. same reason as the others...  I don't want to share my entire life online or I won't have time for any real time stuff  : )

@ASTRAEA  Bad enough that you spend time here?   AARP a guilty pleasure? Say it isnt so Woman Very Happy.

 

No snapchat or instagram for me either.  I do admit to message board addiction though and there are blogs I enjoy.

I think communications would be a lot better, and people more attentive, if they spoke directly to their real friends, instead of posting such trivial stuff to a huge circle of acquaintances online. [and never mind all the things they probably shouldn't post anywhere at all!]

It's bad enough that I spend time here & on Facebook; I don't need any other social media! Unlike so many young people today, I also don't need to broadcast about everything I do.
