I can't really wrap my head around the social networking obsession some people have... I created a Facebook account in High School and had a little fun with it, had a little fun with it in college, but I don't even touch it nowadays. I've had a Twitter account for ages too, but I've barely ever used that. Signed up when Google+ went live, but again, don't touch it.
Honestly, if I want to have a conversation with someone, it's not going to be screaming out loud where everyone can hear. I wouldn't do it in real life, why should I do it online? And if I want a personal journal, I'm not going to read it out loud to millions of people, yet people seem to think we all want to hear their innermost thoughts...
But, it seems the world really wants social networking to stick, so I'm sure it's not going anywhere.
People gasp when I say I don't have (and never have had) a cell phone. I'm 24 and I want to go to school, work, and leisure in peace.
Facebook sucks (I'm the kind of person that likes to experience things they dislike just to hate them, and facebook is great for that).
I've had a Facebook since I was 12. But cause I am of a younger generation, it is more natural to me. But I ABSOLUTELY refuse to make a twitter account. I see no need for it and I don't need one to read tweets from others, like Blizzard or Bashiok.

I don't always burn. But when I do, I use hellfire.
What I dont get is why people feel the need to denounce social networking publicly. I have facebook, only used it to play some games at start, got bored, and now only using it to enter contests like the beta ones. I also have twitter, but only use it as a newsfeed with flipboard. But I dont have a problem with people using those tools in other ways, and I dont look down at them.
