Well maybe I don’t, but you do.
Here are four excuses to stay as far away from social networks as possible.
- You have a life. So maybe everyone else is burning their life away having all the fun in the world on LinkedIn. That’s ok. You can actually apply for jobs, rather than pretend to apply for them.
- You have a job. We all need a paycheck to survive. It’s not that hard to give up Facebook for 8 hours a day, unless your job is to be on Facebook. Then you’re ruined.
- You have things to do. The only people who ever accomplish anything on social networks are the ones who are paid to accomplish things on social networks. And I don’t see you bringing home that big social media paycheck yet.
- You’ve got the rest of the internet. There really is an entire internet that has nothing to do with social networks. Most of it is porn, but apparently there’s some other good stuff in there too. Just watch out for the porn.
Don’t you feel better already, giving yourself excuses to stay the hell away from your friends, “friends,” family, and everyone who desperately wants the weakest of connections with you? I know I do! What are your reasons for avoiding social networks?
