    Default Snapchat - do you?

    Snapchat - are you an active user of it?

    My wife and my four kids (17-24) all have it and actively use it. I do not but I do have Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts and it's probably a toss up between Facebook and Twitter as to which one I use the most. I hate the fluff that many people post on both platforms, more so Facebook and block those that actively post fluff - actually have my own daughter and wife blocked because I don't need to see 27,462 cat videos a day. They're more communication tools for me than anything else.

    So back to Instagram, should I or not? I do know that my kids are posting some stuff that might be of interest but I don't want to be bothered with more fluff even if it just personal fluff. Thoughts? Do you actively use Instagram or is it just another annoyance?

    I use snapchaat the most, followed by Instagram and lastly I rarely use facebook anymore. I hate how Facebook broadcasts everything you do. Like if I join a public car forum and post 'looking for a new car' it shows up in all my friends feeds even if they aren't in that group. Or I see shit like my friend liked someone I don't knows shared post of someone else I don't know. And garbage to fill the news feed.

    At least with snapchat i can send what I want to certain people or make certain things public and that's that. If I watch and comment on friends stuff it doesn't share that with the world. Instagram is similar. If I tag my friends in certain stupid videos no one else can see that.

    i don't have anything but snapchat, so yes i snachat.

    usually random ass pics to my friends, trash talk, and sometimes dog pics haha. funny stories from friends too, very entertaining. one friend i have on snapchat posts some funny as fuck shit like when he got a turban at a canada day celebration thing. wasnt racist but more so cool seeing an asian experiencing what its like to wear a turban, cool experience for sure.

    Deleted all social media, including snapchat, fb, ig, linkedin about 8 months ago. No backup/fake/troll accounts. Just permanently deleted everything.

    I'm amazed at the self-importance social media has created.

    I still don't understand the difference between them all, probably cuz I don't really care. Fecesbook is more than enough to hold all the steaming social media dumps my cohorts take.

    Snapchat: Recently got it to see what the hype was about. My mom is hooked and sends me daily snaps with ridiculous filters

    IG: Good business promo tool, which is exclusively what I use it for. I don't have a personal account.

    FB: Terrific networking tool. I rarely post personal stuff, my personal page is mostly friends tagging me in stuff or an occasional post when I'm out riding with the boys. I do occasionally share my store posts on my page where I'll have friends like the page or share it so it's free marketing.

    Twitter: I find it annoying to use so traction has been limited.

    I find social media to be the best and cheapest marketing tool so that's primarily what I use it for. I do have a handful of ostentatious 'friends' in my network who I periodically delete or unfollow.

    I don't use this word very much at all, but AMEN!
    Except I did that years ago and will never look back.

    Snapchat is f&^king retarded, it has zero actual utility to it, it is simply a novelty.

    Facebook on the other hand is a god send, organizing events, running a business/advertising, and being able to communicate with more than 1 or two friends at a time is awesome.

    Instagram is good for photofags.

    Twitter is something else completely stupid. Facebook does the same thing but actually has true functionality. Twitter is for vapid idiots who are narcissists and just want attention.

    I used to agree but major corporations (GE) are using Snapchat to connect with new audiences through "insider" stories. You may not see the value on a personal level, but big business is leveraging this app in major ways to generate profit.

    It depends who you're connected to. I'm interested and affiliated with a political party but Facebook is information overload. Twitter sends me an alert when there is a post specifically from that entity. I suppose you can set Facebook up to do the same thing but twitter seems like a streamlined version.

    Yes, kind of goes with my point, just because a company uses a shallow, manufactured experience to advertise doesn't make it any less shitty.

    But Millions upon millions of people would disagree with me on Twitter as well. I still stand by my statements, its typical vapid bullshit with no real use. Which makes it perfect for 50%+ of the worlds population.

    Success does not mean something is good, or useful.

    I follow a bunch of hot girls like Helen Owen, Rachel Cook + Many others, and a couple travel bloggers, but I never post on it, maybe posted 3-4 times in my life...

    Use Instagram for marketing. Facebook a little too but mostly to post pictures and organize events, group chats etc.

    I get a lot of news from there as well since I like so many news pages/magazines.

    IG and FB are good for business.

    I've never liked Twitter. Snapchat seems like it's made for half wit filters and nudes. Pinterest is for stay at home moms.

    Linked In is probably the most useless I've ever been on. It's like a half-way-to-Facebook social network that few people use, random adds from middle eastern countries daily. It's weird. I don't see the usefulness in it.
