The main social media I participate in is 4 or 5 RV’ing related forums. Great sources of information and places to share what you have learned over the years.

Desk top computer for email and locating info – that is how I found RV Travel. Flip phone does what I need – daughter insisted. One TV that I get over the air. I don’t understand any of the other stuff. What I already use wastes enough time. Oh, paper maps and magazines that come to my mail box. (the US Post Office still delivers mail – not just packages for Amazon.) AND .. I still CAMP.

WoW! Look at the amount of wasted time and productivity that chart proves.

I’ve let go of Zuckerbook a number of years ago. I use Twitter as a news feed and I like to leave the occasional opinion on here, but to know what people are doing at all times is ridiculous to me. YouTube is still decent. As a whole social media is a pandemic disease that’s getting worse by the year.

I like Marco Polo. It is a video service that enables one to sent a video message similar to a text. The receiver can look ar the file any time and reply at their convenience. Great for keeping up with our grandchildren!

I follow a couple of forums for RVs, Jeeps & ham radios but no time for things as facebook and the like. We’re too busy being active outside having fun!

I read posts and view videos but I don’t “participate” on the ones you have listed. I do occasionally post on RV Travel and Forest River Forums.

Sure are a lot of I don’t participate in social media responses. Wonder if they know this website and newsletter is social media.

I responded with other, as I go to several RV Forums and this site.

I use YOUTUBE exclusively. It’s not really a Social Media Site, like FAKEBOOK, but a means to get video information on projects and other information. I DON’T use it to CHIT CHAT and GABB!

Social Media has become such a Destructive Force in America, it’s why I stay away from it.

Typing as much as I do on RV Travel is the most you will see me use this form of Social Media.

I look through Facebook to see what friends and family are up to and to read people’s comments regarding posts about the status of our state and nation. Sometimes I’ll respond, but usually keep my thoughts and opinions to myself. When I go to YouTube, it’s normally to get instructions on how to do something or how something is supposed work. Pinterest is usually for funny memes or quotes — Grumpy Cat and Sarcasm are my favorites.

I was a Facebook addict for over two years. I blew off several hours a day! Finally, near the end of last year, I decided to break the habit. Almost as tough as quitting smoking! I’ve been “Facebook free” for almost six months now – and it’s still tough. Most of my ‘real life’ friends are on it and I miss that contact. However, I still blow off time hanging on forums pertaining to my interests (Ford Powerstroke diesels, drones, Polaris rzr’s, RV’ing, etc.).

This “social media” thing is definitely a double edged sword. The good part – SO much information at your finger tips. The bad part – some ‘information’ is sketchy at best and it’s up to us to sort it out.

EPIC Nomad Life is a fairly new social media platform that is specifically designed for RVers.

I recently hooked into which is a facebook format without the algorithm problems that block so many people. It’s a free for all, sometimes and I block some folks but I know that my posts get seen, without interference from some yuppy, new age freak who can’t stand what I am saying!
