You cannot say no one ever listens to you if you use social media because if people read what you say and notice you first obviously people are listening or see something interesting about you so you may feel like you are boring or uninteresting and wonder why people follow you in the first place, but obviously if people notice and follow you, they see otherwise
The term "social media" is kind of ironic. The amount of time people spend on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, can actually make you become obsessed with it, and obsessed with yourself. If you stay inside all the time, using those sites, and are not actually hanging around people, it can make you less social. No matter how many people you may be interacting with online, its not like they are right there, talking to you, understanding how you really feel. And with online friends, they may not be real friends. You never know if they are going to keep talking to you. So in a way, social media is addictive enough to make people become anti-social....I would rather not talk to people, then talk to completely fake people, who don't care
Maybe I am alone here, but: I don't like Facebook. I think its way overrated... Does anyone else not use or dislike Facebook? I think its too personal, and most people don't really care, lots of times, what is going on in your life, or if you are thier friend or if they are your friend, at least in my experience....I love using tumblr, and blogging, and things like that, but I hate Facebook..

"The revolution will not be televised!" No mainstream media outlet in the country is speaking out about what has happened in Turkey. The only way to follow what has happened is via social media, eye witness accounts, and a few cameras broadcasting on the internet. We desperately need to draw attention to the injustice that is taking place in Turkey. We cannot let the media blackout bury this in darkness. 31.05.2013 Bloody Friday Yesterday was the scene for unprecidented state and police violence against the public in Turkey.

Yesterday was Turkey's Bloody Friday. It started as a peacful protest. People set up tents, sang, and held book readings at the park to keep out bulldozers -Police started firing tear gas grenades, water cannons, and rubber bullets, directly targeting the people. -Gas grenades were fired into metro stations.

1 On my space, tom doesn't really do anything and justin timberlake is part owner. On facebook, mark sold to the highest bidder and is famous because of his portrayal by jesse eisenberg in a movie. On twitter, jack presence is just as obscure as david is on tumblr. I'm not dissing so "why should I care", you ask? Here on Witty, Steve interacts with the community, encourages participation, continues to improve the site by considering the users, and only asks that you show some wit. He refuses to participate in these social media popularity contests.
