Do i need a social media account?

Post  Ironman on Thu 20 Apr 2017, 5:14 pm

First topic message reminder :

Just putting this out there. In this day and age where it appears if you dont have a facebook or LinkedIn account you dont exist.
Many forums have become inactive because its members have migrated to facebook and now potential employers look up applicants on LinkedIn. I don't have anyaccounts  apart from this one because of my perceived security and privacy concerns. Im finding myself looking up old work and high school buddies to see what they are doing 20 odd years later. Id like to join riding groups and track day groups but they are all facebook based.
Your thoughts?
Cheers everyone.

In reply to BanditDaves comment,

Me too, really.  My least favourite thing is people who seem to want to have "text message conversations" with me.  They are a known phenomenon and I'll just ring them back unless there is some reason I want to have a record of the transaction.

back and forth texting shits me too, usually 20 minutes of fumbling with old big fingers could usually have been sorted with a 1-2 minute call

Reminds me of a joke posted here some time ago.

Neighbour #1 confesses to neighbour #2 (via txt of course) that he has been tapping his [neighbour #2] WIFE.

Neighbour #2 shoots neighbour #1 who is now lying on the ground injured.

Neighbour #1 then says the txt message should have read "tapping his WIFI" but the message was auto corrected.


I think the original joke was far better than my rendition Crying or Very sad

My one word text message answers are standing joke in my family ( generally it's just....... OK ) Laughing  ....................I wonder if when the telephone was first invented ,  people complained and said that they preferred to receive a letter in the post, or message via carrier pigeon  than talk on these new fandangled phones ... lol!

Without a doubt there would have been negative feelings about using them too. Change can be a difficult thing for humans to adopt.

BTW I think you can get that message down even smaller than that..........k........ Wink
