Despite being a member of the under-30 set (for a bit longer at least), I just don't get social media. I used to have a MySpace account, but then that got lame and I never used it, so deleted it. Facebook I'm cool with. That doesn't mean I use it often, but I have an account, I know how it works, and I enjoy using it (which only started once I figured out how to get rid of all the effing Farmville and Mafia Wars crap).
My interest in and use of social media sites pretty much ends there.
Being the internet sheep that I am, however, I keep joining these sites people suggest to me. I have a Pinterest account and a Google+ account that are pretty much sitting idle (although I actually pinned my first picture the other day! Woohoo?). I refuse to join Twitter. I don't really get the appeal, and I'm not interesting enough for people to care about what I do every minute of the day. I haven't bothered to make a Facebook page for the blog (I apologize to the three of you upset by that). I don't even know what the hell Klout is (I just heard about it for the first time two days ago, and still can't quite figure out why I should care). StumbleUpon is another one I have no idea what to do with or how to work. I'm sure there are a whole bunch of other social sites I haven't mentioned because I don't even know exist.
A big part of my lack of social media-izing is a general lack of time in my life. When do people find the time to twitter (tweet? twit? See, I don't even know the lingo) all the stuff they do/find in a day? Or the time to look at the millions and millions of pretty things that they pin? Or share so much on Facebook? Honestly, keeping up with the ol' blog and reading the blogs in my reader is about all I can manage most days. I'm also a bit afraid of the time-suck potential these sites hold. I'm a master procrastinator, and having so many other procrastination options at my fingertips would be disastrous for me.
I don't know. I feel like I'm supposed to be all into social media stuff and liking it and caring about it. But I just don't. I can't be the only one, right?
