In each social. the networks have their own "hooks", VV there is a group of our town + acquaintances, in LJ I look at photos (high-quality and large) of other cities, ok I have a mom, I am registered on Facebook only with a password, and some but communication with abroad. In Yandex there are recommendations for films + cue, in YouTube educational videos, Of course, sometimes it scares me; how much time I spend on the Internet, but it's enough to limit myself (2-3 hours a day), because we watch TV!
many posts, news, etc. cannot be viewed in groups that require logging in or add to group members, friends, etc. after logging out, you will not be able to like, add to favorites and comment.
clicking on the link from the outside to the group of the person who wrote the comment is interesting - you will also be required to log into the account or the registration procedure will begin. more often.
You would have tried to crawl on the internet with an ancient opera from the times of presto (or whatever the name of the engine had). a lot of strange sensations would be experienced. some known and visited sites would not be displayed at all.
Personally, work interferes with me. I work there. Many people use social networks and instant messengers to communicate with their clients and employees.
And if in social networks only for entertainment, then probably people are afraid to lose contact not with friends, to lag behind trends, to miss something important.
And what, excuse me, to do in the toilet then, if I retired from all social networks? This may be the only place where you can relax a little and laugh at the vidos, and outside the door there is a family, an adult life ..
Why? If they were not needed, then nothing would be in the way. But VKontakte and Facebook are needed for work, I started an account on Facebook just for work. Whatsapp is also needed for work. There are five different work chats. And it’s easier to find me there so that you don’t bother me with calls. And in Telegram I communicate with my family, often this is the only option for communication.
Addiction, what else) Everything else is just an excuse. Photos that have been collected for many years can be downloaded without problems now in a couple of clicks. It's just that few people admit to you that they have problems with Internet addiction and with social networks in general.
The lack of accounts in social networks interferes. I sawed out of my classmates ten years ago, I have not registered anywhere else. It is not necessary for work, for communication I prefer to call or meet. And even then every three months, all the time is occupied by work, children and hobbies
I already had this experience. In 2010, I succeeded in VK. Then only this network was popular, the rest were just beginning to appear.
And today social networks have entered my life. I run a YouTube channel and share useful knowledge. Therefore, I see no reason to limit myself.
I noticed that VK has ceased to be useful and just began to devour time for it is not clear what. I was only held by music, now I listen to Yandex music or radio :) For the sake of experiment I decided to give up and I hardly sit in it for half a year! At first, my hands were itching to go in, now it's already in parallel .. Although VK still remains not a bad platform for finding and creating work
Only the specifics of the work. With great pleasure I would have retired from all social networks, but most of the work orders come from there. If you need to contact your loved ones, there are calls and a messenger.
The presence of music, news and communication in one place.
Messengers replace communication
Programs for listening to music, guess what))) music
Internet resources replace news
But, only in the social network, all this in one place, give a worthy replacement, the same convenient and practical, and I will immediately remove the VK and other social networks
Musical and film publics. Still, VK issues such resources in layers in which it is easier to find something new. Well, and a ghostly desire that some kind of fifa will appreciate the "rich inner world" on my wall and invite you on a date)))))
It is unlikely that you will receive an answer from people who are not prevented by anything from leaving social networks. The answer can be less than one hundred and forty characters, brevity is the sister of talent)
There is a lot of useful information: documents, videos, books. You can consult on any issue, contact like-minded people. Without social networks, this can also be done, but with them it is faster.
Another point is if a person has an obvious addiction when he spends all his time on the Internet.
Laziness. And indifference to the "problem". You have to remember passwords, logins, where and on what sites you registered. I don’t remember. In general, it is a pity that the administration of social networks and other services itself does not clean up "dead" users once a month (quarterly). And he prefers to spam the mailbox with letters of "happiness", reminding me of the mistakes of my youth.
The work is related to the promotion in social networks + you need to be aware of the "trends".
Communication with friends who are in other cities, colleagues is carried out in the same place.
During the total time of using the tyrnet, I managed to get hold of accounts in LJ, then VK, then Tweet, then TMBLR, then FB, and even Linkedin.
Accounts were deleted in the same order as they appeared, only VK was deleted last one and a half years ago. I just got sick. Spat on the scrupulously saved records, music library, photos, etc. He just fucked up and that's it. I don’t regret, I have a lot of free time. Now I only have telegrams.
So I thought about it too. I almost deleted it, but then came to my senses. Do you know why? Audio recordings, video recordings, photos, correspondence, I did not mind. But the fact that I could lose contact with some people I love, but with whom, unfortunately, this is the only way to contact (VK), it scared me.
Here's what I did. I deleted all information from myself, created a new account. I treat him very "sparingly". Let me explain. I don’t climb into all the groups in a row, I don’t post pictures, I don’t post news, even a figurative avatar - so, symbolically, that it was. Well, all the same, I used to search for music through VK.
doesn't get in the way. there is no need to delete. Why are you asking? Why should I delete from VK, for example?
as if this is something bad ...
honestly, the meaning of the question is not clear.
Materials on languages in groups (many free and colorful magazines), as well as a university group, where the most relevant information about couples, exams, tests and various changes is laid out, and a client base (I work as a photographer). I would really like to leave!
I, perhaps, will not shit that I only listen to music in VK. I listen to music there, watch memes, read interesting but completely useless posts, communicate in conferences with strangers.
And yes, I tried to delete my VK account. News in applications, communication in messengers. A lot of time was saved. I advise you to remove the VK application from your phone for a day and check it.
Previously, study "interfered", since all important points appeared first of all in VKontakte, and without it there was a risk of "slamming". Plus, some of your friends / acquaintances are moving away from telephone communication, preferring social networks as a means of communication. For some, it's trite cheaper.
I help people. This is my daily selfless occupation. These same people I would gladly help without the help of social networks, if there was something more effective at hand.
Registered only in VK. What's in the way? First, the audio recordings. For me, the ability to search and form a playlist in the form presented in VK is still the most convenient. Plus, you can immediately download music. Secondly, publics and pages are a constant and inexhaustible source of inspiration and ideas. Third, communication with friends. Yes, without VK I will not suffer in this sense, I will have a phone number, SMS and the opportunity to meet in person. But it is already difficult to imagine your life without general dialogues and "throwing" video and audio, links. In addition, there are guys who live in other cities, it is more convenient to communicate on the Internet. And finally, work. It is much more convenient for me to communicate with my students in VK. They send me their homework, ask questions, I can make announcements in the faculty group. Plus, regularly visiting VK, I see "hanging" unread messages from students, and thus I understand how much work I have for the evening, how long it will take me for everything. In summary, you can see that I often used the word "more convenient". Yes, this site provides me in a convenient and probably familiar format with what I need - music and contacts with people. In general, on vacation or on vacation I can not visit VK at all - and I will not suffer) There is no particular dependence)
My girlfriend is studying in another city, and therefore you need to constantly keep in touch. Also at work and study, constant conversations, tk. all colleagues prefer social media over other means of communication.
In our time, social networks cannot be regarded as something negative. The very word `` addiction to social networks '' was formed, in my opinion, by the older generation, since this is far unknown for them, which is alien to their Soviet hardening. Well, what did you think, imagine that all your life you have lived in purely counterpart communication, and now more and more often you see how young people get stuck on the phone screen. Of course, you will not understand such a strong attraction to a digital device.
So, returning to the question, it seems silly to me to distance myself from social networks, because over the past 10 years they have become a mechanism of socialization, which definitely makes them necessary. The question is already different, just the same in the content, because an overabundance of trashy information clog the consciousness of the growing generation, and what a sin to hide, all users of social networks. But if you solve this problem, then social networks are more good than bad
Convenient access to audio recordings, some kind of entertainment and, perhaps, communication (it is not always possible to call, etc.)
* Somewhere 140 characters *
From VKontakte personally, I am waving that this is a huge database of audio recordings and a convenient player, it is also very difficult to keep in touch with important people who do not use other means of communication, a telephone conversation seems too cumbersome, burdensome, in order to be up to date all the time.
And what prevents you from throwing out all your clothes or getting rid of your pets / library / aquarium, finally quitting yoga and throwing away the coffee maker ... here and now? Social media is a hobby, like many others, and, moreover, a convenient tool for communication. The question is asked as if deleting all of their accounts is an obvious necessity for anyone. Although if the author of the question perceives social networks as something bad and harmful, it does not mean at all that her opinion is shared by the majority of users.
Understanding that leaving social networks is a sharp step back. Not so much because access to content, instant communication with a large number of people is lost, but because the whole world is now immersed in social networks. This is a whole form of interaction with the world, and it would be unwise to cut off such a source.
How necessary is it?
I need a contact for music, in fact I don't do anything there anymore, if one day the music is gone, then most likely I will stop going there, but I will not delete my account. There is a rewriting with itself in the form of notes and useful links (I think I'm not the only one).
Facebook is a great news feed, which is convenient to use for information about local and external news, so as not to open 100 sites and check the news there - all in one place. Plus, I cannot leave from there, because these are work contacts and I often have to communicate at work on this social network. Facebook has accounts of projects of my organization, our partners and competitors, which should ALWAYS be monitored. It is also a connection with my foreign friends, which I don't want to lose at all.
For instagram, I have no reason not to delete, but there is also no reason to destroy my account. I just like it.
In general, now for many companies your social networks are a business card that can influence the decision both positively and negatively.
Audio recordings and information in the form of photographs and memorable correspondence. It is possible to get rid of addiction, but unfortunately it is difficult to get rid of an account. You have been collecting information from various sources for years. And then suddenly you decide to delete everything. It's a pity and just impossible)
