    What are your thoughts on social media? I have a Facebook account with over 800 friends and believe it or not I can tell you how I know each one of them. Pretty much my entire high school graduating class is on my list. College friends ect. I share a LOT on there. I get messages all the time thanking me for my inspirational posts. Ive become somewhat of a public figure on there, which is fun because I'm an attention whore at heart lol. I probably post 4 or 5 times a day on there. I talk about spirituality, religion, philosophy, sometimes politics, and other dumb shit like pictures of my cats lol. Ill do live videos of me playing guitar and drum too. Its a feature on there where you can make a live video and people watch it in real time, then once it's over you can post it to your wall so people can watch it after the fact. I post a lot of pictures of my family as well. My moms on Facebook and loves it. Dad had an account but deactivated it. He got tired of it. My girlfriend says I spend too much time on there but doesn't mind it.

    I have one and use it every night. I love Facebook. Most people 50 and up don't have a lot of use for it it seems.

    No.

    Social media is quite possibly the single worst thing that's happened to modern society.

    Seems it's mainly populated by rabid progressives, millenials, and attention whores.

    This. I'm not on any social media. This forum is the closest thing to social media that I have.

    I like it. Its a way to stay connected.

    I have a wide range of friends. The youngest are teenagers, the oldest are in their 70s.

    I'm 38 so I'm in the middle

    I just see adults acting like moronic juveniles over some of the crap that gets posted on FB. Ridiculous.

    Well, I'm 45, but I imagine I'll feel the same way when 50 rolls around.

    No. I know hundreds of people but my "friends" are on a different level. We actually see & talk to each other have & will for many years.

    I've never understood the concept of "friends" being people on a social media website who one has only communicated with online, probably wouldn't know who they were if they passed them on the street, and in actuality don't really know a freakin' thing about them..Hell, for all one knows they might be psychos who would make Charlie Manson look like a choirboy. :nuts:

    I'll stick with the friends who I know personally, hang out with, jam with, hunt and fish with, ect.
