Unsatisfied with my social life, and I'm starting to wonder if me not using social media has anything to do with it.
I have a few good friends from work I go out with, and they are very active on facebook/snapchat. They meet a lot of people/potential love interests.
On the other hand, I've never had a Snapchat, and I'm pretty inactive on facebook (barely post, and just a few pictures). I'll meet some people IRL, and we'll get along pretty good, but from that point on more often than not we never speak again.
It felt to me like Snapchat/Facebook was mostly stupid shit like someone showing himself doing homework and sipping a cup of coffee, but the more I look at them use it the more it seems like a form of bonding when they receive a message or a picture from someone. They interact, and they feel much closer than if they only talked in person.
I'm kind of over-analyzing this, just wondering what /adv/ thinks of social media, and if I should put some effort into maintaining my profile and being a bit more active in trying to converse with others online.
