My online habits are similar to those of a groundhog, I guess. When it comes to social media, I am very much of an introvert perhaps I am this way in “real life”. I like to have lunch with people but I would much rather eat by myself and that defines my Internet life.
Once in a while, I will rear my head from my groundhog hole (is that a thing?) and do the occasional tweeting, although the last time that happened was maybe a year ago. For every social media platform I use, I use lightly. Take for example my Instagram page, I’ll post the occasional picture in which I look “socially acceptable” but you won’t see me providing daily fashion updates as to where I got my jeans (which you could probably get anywhere else).
However, what I think is most interesting about my online habits is that I’m not much of a content contributor but I definitely view it. Not so much Facebook or Twitter but with fashion blogs, Youtube and the like, I could be up till my limit which is around 1am just looking at other people’s pictures and generously giving out Instagram likes. Inasmuch as I dislike the chronic over-sharer, I am grateful to them because they give me something to view when Netflix and Hulu come up short. And for that I am grateful. Also, I am very aware this essay makes me sound like a creep, but aren’t we all?
