Please share your opinions on social media sites and/or online forums and how you believe your attitudes and experiences with them relate to your MBTI
I will share a bit about mine to start: I am awkward online but drawn to forums because I find more introverts online than I do in the offline world and I want to know more about how other introverts experience their lives. Most forum and social media sites leave me with constant mixed reactions of wanting to be there and wanting to run back to my cave. I am INTJ

It depends on what type of social platform it is. If it's something where everyone knows me in real life and they can all see what I say and then I have to see them after I've said it (i.e. Facebook, Twitter) then I'm more hesitant to post my actual opinions/feelings. If it's just posting pictures to people I know (i.e. Instagram) then I don't care as much, but I'm still hesitant. If there's some element of privacy (like in a forum such as this where you don't know who I am and I never have to actually see you) then I don't mind being honest. This doesn't stem from the fact that f it's anonymous I can be mean or brutally honest. This has to die with the fact that I'm not that comfortable expressing my personal feelings (good or bad, nice or mean) in front of large groups of people where anyone can see it at any time. I don't know what people are going to think about what I say. I'm not fickle though. My opinion isn't going to change regardless of what a person thinks, but I still care about how people perceive what I say if that makes any sense. I can agree with the sentiment of having mixed reactions; I too want to be there but at the same time I don't want always want to be there or want you to know I'm there. I like to see what others have to say, but I don't always like to share what I have to say.

Whut? is my reaction to most.
Facebook I've got but largely ignore except for messages. I'm not good at networking and don't enjoy too much attention (though I have posted pictures a lot here).

ISTJ: I use Tumblr and this forum for social media. I find people especially on tumblr to be immature, but you find this is real life. You can't seem to escape human stupidity. I am usually more talkative on the internet than irl because being behind a screen gives me time to think about my replies, so that relates to introversion. I like attention, but only online, so the internet is good with that. I basically just share memes, aesthetic posts, and opinions.

I like forums for the discussions but it really depends on the subject matter. I've used Twitter for years because it's efficient. I have no interest in Facebook or any other social media vehicle with the exception of Pinterest. I don't think I've communicated with a single human. I'm there for the DIY and recipes.I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

I use tumblr and facebook. Tumblr for reblogging images and facebook for keeping in contact with about 50 people who matter to me to at least some degree (otherwise I'd delete them). I don't post much on facebook at all.
I never really used forums until I found this one. It was sort of difficult to find my place in the social dynamic here initially but TypeC feels comfy to me now.

I have Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook. Forums usually give me cancer due to the crowds that they attract, and there's a lot more control over what you get to see on both Tumblr and Facebook. I'm only on facebook when I need to contact someone. Twitter is virtually worthless to me; too fast paced.
I do need to expand my presence online..... .... ..... So far TypeC seems nice."May I call you David?” “No, you cannot. You gave me my new name. The least you can do is use it.”
