If it isn't food, shelter, clothing, or giving you head. You can do without it.

What about anti-social media?

Alternate between heavy trolling and lurking. Gotta keep it fresh.

Kids today and their robust, lasting online communities.  I don't quit social media, I survive.  I was on Fidonet, IRC and ICQ, and they're mostly dead now.  I've also watched Livejournal and MySpace die without participating, and probably a couple of others I can't recall right now.

it's impossible to quit if you never started to begin with

I think we'll determine eventually that social media is worse for the individual than a smoking habit and worse for society than... Well, than something really bad. I hadn't thought that far ahead.

I went on facebook a few days ago for the first time in probably 4 months because my mother like to text me "check your facebook!" every now and then like it's something important but it usually ends up being some stupid 6 month old "viral video" she just saw and thinks is hilarious.

"OMG CHECK YOUR FACEBOOK!!"
*checks*
"Isn't that dancing guy hilarious??"
yeah, mom... great

I use FB just to login to Fallen London and TrainStation, and post the occasional snarky picture 2-3 times a year.

Sadly, employers (especially in IT) want to see applicants with a strong social media presence.  When I said at one interview that I didn't possess Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat (etc) accounts (and didn't even own a smart phone), their eyes bulged out of their heads... and I'm sure my resume went right into the trash basket 5 second after I left.

I used to have a Giganews account. These days, it's just FARK & Reddit

/ pretty sure I closed my LinkedIn account a couple years ago.
