Re: Does anyone else NOT use instagram? Or even know what it is?!

[ Edited ]

Instagram has no interest for me at all.  

 

I'll elaborate on that.  If I buy a book or go to a website, it is usually because I trust the person who is the author has some credentials to give me good solid ideas and information.

 

Instagram?  It's a bunch of unknowns who may not be any smarter than me, so what good does that do me?

I am only on Facebook and frankly I want to get away from even that.  I don't do Instagram, Twitter, Tik Tok, My Space (lol), and there is one other I can not think of right now.

 

I think most of these social media devices are a waste of time and are unproductive.

@Squirrel Lover   I do not partake in Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tik Toc or whatever it is.  I value my privacy in a world that lost their privacy when the Internet was created.

I am on both Instagram and Facebook.  I like them both, but Instagram seems to be more popular than Facebook now.  It looks like more people are posting their pics and blogs on Instagram rather than Facebook.

Re: Does anyone else NOT use instagram? Or even know what it is?!

@KatCat1. I agree with you, waste of time and energy. Years ago my son left his FB “open” when he left on a trip and I “peeked” in to see other folks, LOL, and I just ended up getting a bit flustered and comparing my life to others. I think it’s a valuable tool in connecting with distant family and friends and updates of current events in other parts of the world but other than it’s a waste of my time. Some people use it as a advertising tool for their products just way too much info don’t care for any of it....I’m good without it. .

I look at Instagram, but rarely post! I do go on Facebook and post sometimes though! I am not on either of them all the time like some people I know!

I've heard of it but don't know exactly what it is and don't use it.  Was FB for 9 years. I deleted my account last year and am no longer on social media. I don't see the need for it. I also don't own a smart phone or an iphone.
