    Default Who else is not on social networks?

    I just recently deactivated my Twitter and deleted my Instagram. I deleted my Facebook back in 2011. I am on nothing now. I also deleted my Google Plus. No IM apps or anything. If someone wants to reach me they must have my phone number. Otherwise they are out of luck. Anyone else cut off the social networks?

    Yeah I dont bother with it anymore. I can't remember the last time I looked at FB or Twitter. I do use instagram, but a prob only look at it once a day. I dont use Google + but I do back up my photos. I guess I havent given Google + a chance really - the only social networking I do is these forums lol

    I'm on FB, but that's it. I found it interesting that it got to the point where not having some sort of social media presence made you look like you're a creep or trying to hide something, especially from potential employers.

    I don't understand why you HAVE to be on a social network. I tell someone I'm not on Facebook they look at me like I'm crazy.

    I did joined facebook to look up a friend I lost contact for a decade, but deleted the account afterward.

    I also have a fake account that is joined to Google+ to use primarily for posting on YouTube.

    I joined Facebook a few years ago to see what the fuss was about. I saw all the drama people was putting out there and promptly deleted it. Ain't nobody got time fo dat.

    I've never signed up for any social networks, not even LinkedIn (don't consider AC one, it's an Android forum/blog ). I've just never had a need/use for them. Truthfully, I'm not all that social to begin with beyond a small close circle of family and friends. We keep in touch either in person or via phone or e-mail.

    There's a Facebook account with my name on it. My wife uses it to spy on people she doesn't want to have access to her page. She also puts photos of our kids on it for my family to see. I don't use it, but it's still there. Other than a few forums, I have nothing else to do on the Internet but read.

    I would love to get rid of it all. But I live in a different country to most of my family so Facebook is the best way to stay in touch. It's kind of scary that I know more about their lives than I did when we all lived in the same small town but I love being able to watch the little people that I've never met grow up.

    I have a G+ Account (because Google forced me into it..and I like my name being displayed also ), really don't have much of a use for it, other than it accommodating my Gmail account.

    Used Twitter, got bored with it: And I despise of Facebook.

    Not me.

    I have FB deactivated, and don't use my Twitter account.
    Facebook scared the bejeezuss out of me when it scooped all my contacts, including work contacts, clients and some people I worked for but fell out with, others who I hated but needed to keep, and sent them all imvites.
    I definitely had not ticked that box.

    I tried it a year later and it kept telling me who a very wealthy client was meeting, her itinerary, contacts and schedule. I emailed her saying I was invading her privacy, but turned out she had given up Facebook in her 60's as it scared her. The contact was correct but the meeting was not. I had joined Facebook to try and find old school friends. Not a one.
    (maybe they hid)

    I would have tried Twitter more to follow a few select forums, but I couldn't fathom it. It also keeps wanting to patch me in with old contacts.
    And I dont like trolls.
    LinkedIn would have been good for work contacts, but 10 years too late for me.

    AC only, with some Amazon forums, HDTVTest for a time, that's it.
    AC is by far the best, with my little experience.

    I'm only on a sports forum and AC. Been off of FB for about 18 months and I don't miss it. If friends or family want to contact me they can call, text, email, IM, Viber, etc.
