    Embarrasing!!!- Am old..I thought Snapchat was Instagram..and it's not!!

    : I don't know where i have been but when it comes to social media..i am out of the league. I love my reality shows plus i have a teenage daughter already. She told me yesterday to get this "snapchat" account and i told her that i had one already...turns out what i meant was apparently "instagram".
    I can't deal, this is embarrasing but maybe i am not the only one here who has zero clues about this??? Well, at least i said it and i am laughing at myself now haha

    Daizy, I barely have a Facebook account, and that's only so I can read other Facebook accounts. I've heard of them, of course, but I have no idea what a snapchat or instagram account looks like. Read some tweets but never sent any. I Skype regularly but that's it. Still using a flip phone. No Apps in my life. I'd definitely be an embarrassment to a teenage child, LOL.

    You are not alone, Daizy! I don't even have a Facebook account! And that's the way I like it!

    I have Facebook and that is all.

    Well wait, my son set me up on Instagram about 4 years ago and I uploaded a few pics back then and that was IT.

    No Snapchat, no Twitter .... to overwhelming for me.

    I love places like THIS, FoRT ....

    I have no desire to be involved in that stuff. I don't have a smart phone, so that's part of it, but I waste enough time on Facebook and Reddit. I also think those apps that make you look like you have a dog's face, etc. are stupid. just my view. My sister thinks they're hysterical.

    I have my real life facebook and my mostly anonymous twitter to do some book club stuff and that's it. I have zero desire to snap chat or instagram.

    I'm concerned about the trend towards an actual need for a smart phone. For instance, I can't (pretty sure) call up an Uber ride should I need a ride home from a medical appointment, like a cataract surgery. I can't (pretty sure) check my social security account online any more without it.

    I love my FB (except during election time). And FoRT and my other reality board friends. I have a Twitter account, but never look at it.

    I rarely post to Facebook, but love it for keeping up with friends and acquaintances. I've had a Twitter account for years, but haven't posted to it in years. Mostly I read it to keep up with Reality Celebs and sites like Big Brother. I just got an Instagram where I've never posted because I don't take pictures, but I love seeing my honorary niece's family. I guess I'm partially connected, but not actively connected.

    I think you can do social security online still. I've had to do that off/on for clients etc. I don't like the move toward smart phone either. There are huge swaths of the country that don't have access to any cell phone coverage.
