I don't use my instagram because it's literally useless on a PC. I also don't understand how it works very well in general. Seems like a more convoluted Facebook, and it doesn't even let you save pictures without screenshotting them. Instagram is just fucking lame in my opinion.

I also don't have tiktok, Kik, Telegram, Pinterest, tumblr, or SnapChat.

Between Facebook, Twitter, and Discord, my social media bases are covered.

None of them I guess?
Does YouTube count as a social media site? Google signed me up to that when it became part of their ecosystem. I suppose any other Google-owned social networking platform, although I'm not aware of it.

I occasionally use Twitter to keep up to date with gigs for bands and comedians I like. And there’s some decent retro gaming content.

The rest can go to hell. Never liked Facebook, and the conversation 19 year old Zuck had with a college friend pretty much sums up why. Yes, it was a long time ago, but it’s in essence how Facebook still operates.

As a rule of thumb I’m not particularly keen on any service where everything is offered for free, because you are their product. You can guess what they are easily, and I do include Twitter in there as well, but I’m a light user of that.

The wife uses Facebook, though she has to suffer regular lectures from me :D

I use a lot of different forums, which I much prefer as my ‘social’ interactions online, and the ones I use most, I support with donations. Such as this one, where I’ve been in one form or another since GBAtemp launched.

I have IG & Twitter, if it wasn't for business, I wouldn't have IG.

Twitter is useful for CS with companies, and getting free shit from time to time.

I've always seen Tumblr in terrible light. Glad to have never used it, glad I never will.
I've always had bad luck using Discord, so I avoid using that as well, unless there's a tournament my friends are dong.
Really, what's the point of snapchat? Why do streaks matter?? I'll never understand :nayps3:

I'm on Instagram, and that's it. I used to be active on Twitter, Facebook and Reddit too (thankfully not at the same time) but now only Instagram is left. Mostly because it's so easy to just look at the posts and never read the comments, which means I'm not forced to witness petty social media drama. On the day that Instagram makes comments visible without tapping on a little button, I'm out from there too.

In terms of what I actually use it's Youtube, Discord and Reddit as the big main 3 social media platforms.

The rest are just niches like Letterboxd and Gbatemp that are pretty good, don't really care to sign up for other big-media platforms.

I'm a loner so I most definitely Do NOT have any social media accounts. I never opened any account for:
  • Twitter
  • Face-book
  • Instagram
  • Tik-tok
  • My space
  • Snap-chat
If there is a popular social media platform missing from my above list then I don't use and probably I've never heard about it. I use youtube for video game content ,i.e, video reviews, guides and tutorials for jailbreaks, collectibles and boss-fights.

I ofcourse have accounts for video game enthusiasts sites like GBA obviously, GameSpot, GameFAQs, IGN, Giant-Bomb, PSX-Hax, and Wololo.

Technically I still have an Instagram account but I just can’t find the time to use it. I’m a person tho that gets easily obsessed with that kind of stuff and how many likes my pics get. It’s kinda stupid, I can’t use these apps anymore because I invest myself way too much emotionally in them. I learned that my life is way better if I don’t use these apps but I kinda wish I could find a healthy way to use them.

  • Facebook
  • TikTok
  • Instagram
  • Snapchat
  • WhatApp
  • Reddit (<- I do have an account, but barely touch it anymore.)
  • MySpace
  • MSN Messenger
  • And really everything else

The only social media site I'm on is Twitter. I do have Discord and Youtube but I count neither as "social media".

Everything expect Twitter, I just use it as it convenient to follow some accounts and never post anything - but it's still garbage just like everything else
