This is a TERRIFIC question, that I know quite a few people have, but are just too self conscious to ask about. The answer is YES. A billion times yes! Of course it is okay to not be completely sucked into the tempting buzz of social media. You have fewer chances of being stalked, murdered, and or cyber bullied.
Now, I'm not saying that owning a Facebook account will ruin your life, because it wont. I've had an account for almost four years now, and i don't plan on deleting it. I love being able to connect with people without having to figure out what their phone number is, or when they are in their home. I believe that people also enjoy social media because you can get really quick updates about someone you care about.
Is it worth the possible harassment and day to day drama?
Is it worth the hundreds of mis-read messages, fights, and inappropriate memes and photos?
In my obviously extremely superior opinion, its your decision to make. I think as long as you connect with those you care about, it doesn't matter whether its through a computer screen or not.
