    I find them extremly uninteresting. I think it's related to Fe.

    I participate in imageboards, forums, a few Discord servers/Mastodon instances and even the very occasional IRC chatroom. It's a way of supplementing a need for an authentic presentation of self that I find difficult to conjure in real life. You feel more understood than in real life. And the quality and types of people you get to know are totally different from real life... teachers, laborers, programmers, foreigners, homeless, even became conversation buddies with a paleoconservative white ethno-state advocate once. Even if it's mundane I like hearing what different kinds of people's lives are like and what their perspectives are. It's like stories. I like typing and having some time in between to respond and think. Sometimes I get imposter syndrome and feel like people think I'm more interesting or smarter than I really am when I'm really just some bored teen living in a boring suburb with a very average and safe life, but I have very little control over presentation of personas in general, so what can you do?

    Betas and Alphas are the best at using stuff like Twitter and Instagram though. Most of that stuff is completely alien to me.

    I joined fb because of my IEE asked me to. I use it to sell stuff and to share content with him via pm.

    I've attempted several times to use other platforms for business but failed because Its never interesting enough for me and I never post anything. Also I'm bit uncomfortable about the idea to make my face or life public. I don't completely understand why ppl feel comfortable doing it. Like girls doing hours their make up just to take pictures to make a post or going to places just to share where they are. I simply don't get it and mb I'd never get comfortable about it. Before fb, there was another social networking for example hi5. I used it for music purposes. I tried the old random chatrooms but they were usually just full of horny dudes and there was almost impossible to have any coherent talk. I dislike discord because its pretty much talk with strangers and I don't even like to talk or interact with ppl without any clear purpose. I tried IMVU but besides having nice avatars, its basically the same bs. My last try was typology forums to learn more about the topic. Being this forum my longest. Oh, and YT, but yt is mostly for watching vids so I don't think it really counts.

    Ime, besides business, F types are the most likely to be interested and use them frequently.

    Why should I bother? I find common text based communication towards people much harder.

    It is far less improvisational in common context. You'll end up in analysis paralysis.

    I agree. Just a bunch of memes, cat videos, 'selfies', etc. So painfully uninteresting and meaningless.

    I use Twitter the most, but mostly dig thru my tumblr archive and tweet pics. Tumblr was the other social media i used a lot, so quietly sharing art seems to be my jam.

    I don't actually socialize on it, but I like to creep on other ppl socializing, idk 👀 maybe this forum works too, lol.

    Facebook is more like, personal, so used more sparingly. Only to share if I actually leave the house, lol. I might scroll thru once a day briefly to react to a few things 🤷

    Anyway, social media kinda matters during quarantine lol but I don't want a lot of followers on Twitter bcuz it seems like drama in ur life with no benefit. I spend 5 minutes looking at it a time, a handful of times a day. So I'm not really plugged in problematically, but enough to understand the connotations around the word "problematic."

    Anyway, esi

    I left Facebook back in 2017, I think. I remember I was 18, in my first semester of college, when it became a ‘big thing’. 2005? At first I didn’t feel comfortable posting anything because the whole thing seemed really weird and foreign to me. But eventually I did and grew more and more comfortable posting stuff. Then, eventually, I saw how much damage it caused, and got sick of it, which was why I left. It seemed too toxic to me. I also had/have a Pinterest. Well the reason I add had is because it’s still there but I rarely get on there anymore. At first I really didn’t get it, what the hype was, but then I started posting similar things to other people (fashion, recipes, hacks), and it wasn’t my thing really. I noticed some other people had aesthetic story boards, so I erased all the other stuff to be replaced with my own aesthetic vision. And I pinned a lot, obsessively. But the reason I don’t get on my Pinterest anymore is because I have so many boards on there, I can’t remember where to put anything now. The vision I had is lost, like if you’d start writing a book 10 years ago, put it down, and try to come back. It’s hard. So I picked up tumblr, and at first I wasn’t a big fan because it didn’t have categories, but considering how my Pinterest has the plot lost for me, its becoming the thing that I like best about it tumblr, because you can just jumped back into it. I had Instagram for a short time, not a fan. I made a twitter account but never posted anything. This site is the only social media I really use because I don’t talk to anyone on any other site. I was on allpoetry(?) for a while, but I got burnt out. And a few genealogy sites that I don’t really get on anymore.

    I think for some on social media, the higher the anonymity, the higher the sense of freedom.

    Whereas, if you show your face to people IRL, you feel this sense of obligation to like people's posts, convey a certain image, agree/disagree with certain things, hold back, etc. Also the fact that your sense of privacy is invaded; it's kinda weird that people you barely interact with now all a sudden has access to your personal life. I think that in itself can cause a lot of stress to some.

    On the flip side, social media can be used as it was intended; as a tool to reconnect / share with old friends and family.

    I use Instagram (rarely), this forum, and sometimes check Quora but never write on it. I stopped using Facebook and haven't regretted it for a second. It didn't help me feel connected to anyone that I wanted to be connected to, and most of the time it felt like looking at ads of people's lives rather than their real life.

    What I like about social media like this and Quora is the chance to read people's stories and hear different perspectives, especially around topics I'm experiencing myself. I like knowing what people are really thinking, feeling, and experiencing.

    I appreciate Instagram for the pretty pictures and ability to make stories. I know an SLI-Si who has a beautiful account where every post is thoughtful, aesthetic, calming, beautiful. She's a graphic designer and has an eye for beauty.

    When I was on Facebook it seemed like the ESEs I knew were most prolific. I think it's related to instinct, too, because they were all Social first. They would narrate their daily life with multiple pictures a day of what they ate, where they walked, what their kids were doing. It seemed to me like a person's season of life as well as their dominant instinct played a big role in how much they were on social media.

    I see almost no posting on platforms like Insta and Facebook from INTx types. There seem to be a lot on Quora, though.
