I do get social media, and interacting with my friends and family is one reason I'm there (a lot more people I know from face-to-face interactions are on Facebook than Twitter). But to be honest, there are way too many social media to choose from. And it seems like new social media websites crop up every day. I want to simplify my life by only using a few social media websites — social media that, to me, are the most popular and have remained popular for some time due to the most people using it often. That is why I choose Facebook and Twitter. I also actively use Google+, and LinkedIn, and WordPress too (for blogging). I have a Pinterest account, but I very rarely use it. I'm not the type that hops on to the newest website because that would be just too much for me to maintain.
