I don’t use social media
I do have a Facebook account but only use it to check out events at 2 local book stores
I never post on it
In the long run who really gives a shit about my daily activities
Freely giving the entire planet your info seems like a pointless and moot idea
Interesting!I'm quite serious about my privacy and I don't have a facebook profile. I actually wanted to have an empty one to be able to check out some things on there, but Zuckerberg wanted to have my phone number, which was a no-go for me.
I have linkedin, however. I hate it given how many personal information I have on there, but don't see other ways to keep in touch with professional contacts, so I complain but keep it.
Personally I like social media, it's an outlet for me to say tons of shit I don't have the balls to say in front of real crowds of people. I'm basically the annoying overly political left wing guy posting rage news every day, with my own smatterings of angry words to personalise it.
I've had a lot of people tell me over years that they enjoy seeing what I post online because they don't dare do it themselves. I find it strange because I simply cannot see where the fear comes in. Perhaps it's because I truly believe in what I'm sharing, so I sense no shame in broadcasting it? I dunno.
Anyway, thanks for the input. What I find interesting about the INTJ approach is that you guys don't seem to mind what you say in real life, i.e. in a group situation where facts are being discussed, you'll just say it how it is, easy peasy, and I find that highly admirable. But when it comes to online social aspects, there seems to be this big barrier of fear that stops you from daring to put your words out.
