Its not social media its antisocial media, before Fakebook and its many wannabees we used to meet our friends (i mean proper friends not the sad hangers on) and go for a beer, drive etc and talk face to face, now they stick irrelevant ****e on your wall usually pictures of cats with dumb arse quotes written over the top (a fine example below) , jeez i hate everything about fakebook and always have.

Yes you can take that as meaning i do not have an account.

I agree that younger women are the worst, they will often say I don't know anything about politics as if some people are innately endowed with political knowledge and an interest in what is happening around them and they were somehow missed out. The point is that politics affects every part of everyone's life and you have to learn it by taking part or asking why things happen and who makes those decisions you do not like , you know like tampon taxes and women's pension rights.

There should be a tax surcharge on those who choose not to register and another for those who choose not to turn up maybe added to your council tax ( you know the payment that is made to local councils to provide services - info for young females)

I have to admit to having a Facebook account.... no wait before you shoot me and I will explain!

I signed up for it in order to join a local homebrew closed group of brewers who pass on info just like this forum. It's useful for problems, advice competitions and beer swaps.

I DO NOT accept invitations to befriend anyone other than the closed group because I do not want to be inundated with their lives, holidays,ickle baby photos and the inevitable best dog/cat in the world licking it's @rse whilst sitting on your knee(ahhhhh isn't he lovely)
So in real terms you can operate facebook with very limited permissions and access only to very specific areas of interest and ignore the gabbling youth of today who have an abbreviation for everything,TBH I do not understand them.

OK I do have to admit I have no mates that send me such invites, not that I would accept them even in they did!

@geetee - I have to admit my above rant was a bit tongue in cheek but you get my drift, i do use Twitter or Twatter as some prefer to call it but i use it as you do Facebook i am not out there chasing "followers" (twitters version of facebook friends as far as i can tell) and if i am "followed" unless they are using it for the same reasons as me i do not follow back.

OK I also have to admit that I do have a Twitter account but for not like the idea of saying things in a limited amount of characters as you may see from some of my posts I am a bit more verbose than 140 characters.

I also do not like the idea of sharing a platform where the most powerful man in the world is reduced to acting like a kid with a new toy and making a fool of himself, BTW he doesn't need 140 characters to do that!
