"social media is meant to be a place where you share things about your life..."

Which sums up neatly why I don't participate in social media.

I disagree. Looking thru old pictures is wonderful. I can see the life my parents lived. Be reminded of things and people that I had forgotten. Do attention whores waste their lives orchestrating every little thing? Yes. They are not my problem. It's like the old saying " money doesn't change people, it unmasks them for who they really are."

#2 His point on taking pictures is not about it being useless, it's about the equilibrium of time spent on preparing those pictures versus the time spent enjoying the result and the event in itself while you took them. And this is where we differ from attention whores, I spend only seconds on taking a snapshot of something that caught my interest and prefer to maximize me time enjoying it in the moment.

On the other hand, I can't remember when I posted something on FB, never created Tweeter or Instagram accounts, so I think that those of us that really value real live experience and not the false, staged happiness of social media approval tend to leave it to the side without even making a big deal of it.

Like anything it can be both good and bad. A lot of folks in my circle post way too much and much too trivial, yet there are things here and there I really enjoy seeing and being "in the loop".

However, FB seems to filter what they think they want me to see. In general I only see a fraction of whom I'm "friends" with. Seems to miss the social point of it all.

Filtering external media that the platform host wants you to see and not see (taking a side) is another video. >:)
