Depending on who you talk to, social media is either a blessing or a curse. It has certainly helped us to connect with one another in ways we never thought possible, but on the other hand, and quite ironically, it has made us far more antisocial. We’ve seen many platforms comes and go over the years, with the current cool kids club consisting of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and LinkedIn. Through these mediums you can follow celebrities, discover new recipes and even find a job, but despite all of their uses there are still many reasons not to use them at all.
10. It’s an Expectation
Social media is so commonplace these days that it’s become an expectation you have a presence on the main networks. Even from a professional standpoint, many organizations expect employees to understand and use the sites as part of their job. But shouldn’t it be a personal choice? If you’re tired of social media or it just isn’t for you, then quit! You shouldn’t have to explain yourself or feel the need to conform to societal norms.
