This lifestyle would have made sense to me a few years ago when I was too lazy and low value to create bomb social media profiles (instagram most effective for banging, LinkedIn for professional.)

Social media is certainly not the most productive way you can spend your time, but this is also a game forum, correct?

Having no social media profiles leaves you disconnected from family, friends, and more importantly, bang leads. Almost every millennial woman will consider you weird, not mysterious.

Social media is here to stay. It's much better to discuss methods to game the system for more social status, money and bangs, than to continually try to be counterculture and dodge the inevitable questions about why you're such a sketchy serial killer who doesn't socialize like a normal person.

It's shit like this that leaves a sour taste in my mouth from red pill/RVF culture. I struggled and wasted a lot of good years with the anti social media mentality. As soon as I started making an effort into social media, I started swimming in pussy.

Anybody reading this, I implore you not to cockblock yourself and start investing into social media. There will be less and less bangs that don't involve social media as the years go on, trust me.

I totally agree with making a basic Facebook and deleting Twitter, limiting other social media profiles. Keep instagram, invest six months into creating a dope profile. I promise, you will thank me later.

The last ten minutes of the video addresses dating. The problem, according to the video, is that the pussy you are swimming in is junk pussy. Psychologically damaged narcissists who will never satisfy normal desires for emotional intimacy. You might as well be masturbating to porn using a Fleshlight® to simulate a vagina (sex doll with virtual reality goggles in the future). Only the young, dumb and full of cum can't see that this won't fully satisfy a normal man.

The best way to avoid psychologically damaged narcissists is meet women in real life, away from social media. Nothing wrong with using Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, etc as placeholders for email addresses or to present a resume. Just don't spend any time on them. Ideally, don't accept any friend requests, don't post anything, don't allow comments, force women to use email to contact you. The women who can't/won't do that are the women you want to avoid.

Better no pussy than narcissistic pussy.
Better no pussy than making yourself narcissistic.

Two things can be right at the same time and you are both right.

When I started on my online dating journey, I had no public social media or anything like that. In hindsight, it demonstrably hurt my leads/contacts/bangs/etc. The process of developing a social media presence (solely for online game) settled the matter for me. You can pull a lot more with a well-curated online presence (which, incidentally, can and will most likely will be complete bullshit).

But that gets to Shemp's points. As I believe I mentioned in my social media breakdown, I still consider social circle to be NUMBER ONE, the best, hands-down way to get girls. It is better quality in terms of all aspects. You can pre-screen in a way that online purposely obfuscates. It is just better. In "the current year" it may be better for straight bangs as well. I have started keeping backup copies of every message that a girl and I exchange. I never thought to do that a few years ago. At least you know the girls in your social circle and some of your friends might come to your defense if you get #meetoo'd.

I think the question of social media and game comes down to where you are in the game life-cycle - as it appears to apply to most men. Young or young-in-game guys who are looking to increase their notch count surely benefit from all of this nonsense. Guys who are a bit older and focus on STRs, LTRs, and marriage, probably see a decreasing ROI on using much of this stuff. And if you are married with kids, you should be way more focused on what your kids (and perhaps your wife) are doing on social media.

RE: Social Media Wagon
I put my simcard into a flipphone, so no more smartphone for me. That takes away "looking at your phone" completely. The only real hassle is not having Google maps.

On the laptop, I used a Chrome plugin called DF Tube (Distraction Free for YouTube), which allows me to get rid of all the distraction site elements; autoplay, watch next, recommended videos and the homepage full of vids. All I see now on youtube is a search bar.

For Facebook, I've used "Social Fixer", which allows me to get rid of site elements. Now all I see is the messenger and the search bar, nothing else.

I don't use any other social media besides reddit. Besides that, I put a tab limiter on my chrome browser, so max 2 tabs per session. To sort of combat "The Shallows" effect of automatic multitasking.

Trends amongst teens compared to 10 years ago

Face-to-Face Interactions: Down 70%
Dating: Down 63%
Blowjobs: Down 50%

Almost spit my drink all over my monitor when he said that shit.

I figured sexual activity was down because of technology, but was pretty shocked it is to that degree at this point.

But think about it, even phone sex has to be approaching extinction because talking is too awkward for the majority of teens. Sexting is the lamest shit ever. How can you even cum when you have to stop wanking or flicking your bean every 5 seconds in order to type a paragraph of sex talk?

I wonder what attending junior prom must be like nowadays.

I'm surprised this doesn't get brought up more on the forum. I know there are guys here (Gio) who go after college girls all the time. Go day game at a major university in the US. Sure, there are the party sluts. No question. But there are far more girls who will stare at their shoes when you talk to them. I was hanging out with this 22-year-old girl a few months ago who refused to talk to people on the phone. If she couldn't text someone or do some kind of online chat (for customer service, for example), she wouldn't do it. There are more and more of the social phobia types than ever before.

There is another thread on the forum about raising children and social media. You really have to look out for the future trench coat mafia types with the amount of zombification that happens on these devices and services.

As to the prom aside, I have heard several stories (including, I believe, some on the forum) of administrators having to bribe kids to show up at school dances. The girls all socialize together and the guys all socialize together and they really want nothing to do with one another. I know at my alma mater, they have done away with everything but Homecoming and Prom. We used to have 10-12 dances a year.

RE: Social Media Wagon
Hey guys, I have been reading this forum for over a year and finally took the plunge to actually join. Total right wing red pill here, although I am still trying to understand what it all means, but the harder I think about it the more I think I was Red Pill before it was even a thing. I signed up today using a burner email on the advice of Roosh and am looking forward to talking to proper men and learning from you.

Forgive the thread drift boys!

Anyway, social media....

I am of the firm belief that the C I A has a controlling interest in Facebook.

Peter Thiel headed up Palantir, which is a seeding capital organization established by the C I A to fund start ups which might help with intelligence gathering. Facebook, as it is widely documented took their money.

Fast forward to now, virtually the entire world has an account replete with facial recognition. The amount of data they have on us is beyond scary. A large percentage of Earth has now freely supplied all of their personal information to Zuckerberg et al.

A simple question, if the C I A knocked on your door and requested a bio metric scan of your face, would you supply it?

Well, you have.

It doesn't take a genius either to figure out that facial recognition is retrospective too. Think about that......

I personally deleted my Facebook account over a year ago. Not before I had to employ a script to spend almost 4 days cleaning up my wall. It is that insidious.

If you are still on Facebook clean up your wall, back up your data and get the hell out. Make sure you delete it properly too.

In 10 years time, we will be able to pin point how we lost our privacy and anonymity forever, thank you Facebook.

RE: Social Media Wagon
Good timing on this thread. I cut down on social media significantly in October.
Haven't watched the video but my reasons for doing so we're -
1. Taking away productive time
2. Acting as unnecessary distractions during work. I tend to be most efficient and productive when working continuously for 3-4 hours, followed by breaking for a couple hours. Social media interruptions, whether forced or self driven during the 3-4 hour work windows tended to disrupt concentration and slow momentum.
3. Cleaning up mental space

Here's what I did -
1. Deleted facebook
2. Deleted instagram
3. Deleted snapchat
4. Dormant linkedIn profile for background research on people.
5. Whatsapp required for business
6. YouTube complete avoidance except when required for research since I tend to get suckered into watching one more video and it snowballs.
7. Reddit restricted to 15 min/day
8. RVF restricted to 15 min/day...there goes my 15 for today I'll see y'all tomorrow.

Edit-Never had twitter so there's that

RE: Social Media Wagon
I've been cutting down on SM for some time, it's been relatively easy for the most part:
  1. Facebook, easiest as I don't care about people on there tbh.
  2. Instagram, hardest as it's the most addictive, for validation and sluts.
  3. LinkedIn, work related and wouldn't ditch, lots of great shit on there.
  4. Snapchat, dead.
  5. Twitter, go on it like once a week, if that.
  6. WhatsApp, frequently use it as I can keep in touch with people I've met across the world and plates with ease.
It's been okay, I'm not that bothered and I'll probably cut down even more as time goes on.

RE: Social Media Wagon
I truly believe there is a negative correlation between peace of mind/general happiness and the number of times someone posts on social media. Once you realize that nearly all social media is a smoke show it loses it's power over you. These platforms are designed to keep you addicted. Instagram for example uses a "variable reward" system that is synonymous to slots at the casino. Check IG....0 likes....check IG 10 mins later...0 likes.....check IG 5 mins later....50 likes--->Dopamine rush and thus the addictive cycle has commenced. If you are using social media for anything other than business I'd say it's a loss.

Just installed that extension. Super useful.

I also installed the Duck Duck Go extension for Chrome which supposedly protects your data so your search results aren't personalized.

I will probably delete Twitter and Facebook from my phone. I don't use them there anyway.

I've set a time limit on my social media apps on my phone to 30 minutes daily (iPhone). Text messaging is included in that category, so that usually eats up the time. I generally only spend <5 minutes per social app per day.

I also monitor my screen time reports to see how many times I pick up my phone and how long I spend on various apps daily. Enlightening stats that make you look yourself in the mirror.

An alternative to deleting the apps is to heavily filter who comes up in your feed. That has reduced my time and made it more interactive with people in my network, family, and friends.

Learning to live with social media but am by no means married to it outside of my job in digital marketing.
