As someone on the outside looking in, it can be really odd at times. I've stayed away from MySpace, FB, Twitter, IG, Snap, etc ever since they came out. At the time it was simply because I didn't care - about others' pets, kids, lunches, or self-aggrandizement. Now it's because it creeps me out. Sometimes I'll be out - say on a bus or at a diner - and realize that everyone around me is staring at their phones oblivious to the real world around them. Families sitting at a table all staring at their phones. Not a word to be said.

I have no definitive opinion of good/bad on the topic but it's definitely not for me. I'm not fond of information bubbles or narcissism and those seem to be the currency of social media currently.

I'm 31 btw for some age context.
