I feel like I still haven't figured out social media. Unlike everybody else my age I know I never used facebook, snapchat, twitter etc. It still all kinda feels weird and new to me

@JamesMcK if it makes you feel better, I don't even know what snapchat is lol

@birnim It's one of the big messaging platforms, with other stuff like "stories" etc. too, used by just about everybody I personally know. Personally I've found it clunky and awkward to use, and I can't see why it's so popular

@JamesMcK its a really weird feeling for me too.

Facebook is bad and all.

But I can scroll through my friend's feeds and photo galleries and see moments of their life. And yeah all that data is being tracked and such. But I still feel somewhat sad about all the photos where I didn't got tagged, or the ones I could have shared with them, stuff like that.

Sadly it all has become mostly memes and those friendships feel pretty distant nowadays.

Current friends is not very different...
