    Other than a site like this, I have no social media contact.

    It isn't social. It's "psycho social."

    Facebook? Nope.

    Twitter? Not a tweet from me.

    Instagram? Who cares what I am doing right now? Nor do I care what anyone else is doing right now.

    I talk to real people. I've talked to a few people from this site.

    I feel happy and well adjusted and completely disinterested in getting wrapped around the social media axle. It just seems like a fraud and a waste of time.

    YMMV.

    I didn't watch the video, but the thumbnail looks like he should be in a Lord of the Rings movie....

    He's a total computer geek.

    Jaron Zepel Lanier (/ˈdʒeɪrɪn lɪˈnɪər/, born May 3, 1960) is an American computer philosophy writer, computer scientist, visual artist, and composer of classical music. Considered a founding father of the field of virtual reality, Lanier and Thomas G. Zimmerman left Atari in 1985 to found VPL Research, Inc., the first company to sell VR goggles and gloves.

    I didn't watch the video either, but, at first glance, I thought the guy looked a lot like Ron Jeremy with a wig on.

    I don't do any of the spacebook or others either. I do this site, a rv camping group, a Kubota ttractor , & a flying Forum. I just don't care if your at the mall.
    I will say that I know someone that makes a very good income selling hair care products mostly on Facebook. It would beat fixin ac's on a roof in the 100+ Texas heat.
