Social media is simply a tool that facilitates actions.

Kim Kardashian was the first time I’ve seen a woman tormented about her weight gain while having a baby. But at least she asks for that attention by voluntarily obsessing over her weight publicly on her social media. But now nobody is safe.
I was never as famous as all these kids. There was no social media. We weren’t celebrity-obsessed as a culture. I feel like these kids are under a crazy microscope; they’re basically brands. And they eventually implode and act out. They need a break, and they’re not getting one.

Social media is something I approach organically. It’s all me! Sometimes I’ll post four things in a few hours, but then I could go dark for a week.
It’s funny how I use social media because I don’t use it to promote my restaurants that much. I use it for social issues and I think that’s what it’s for. I do a few things – I mess around with music a lot because that’s a passion of mine. If something strikes me and I want to share it, I do.
So much has changed since the ’70s and ’80s when it comes to acting and being in the public eye. We’d go out to a restaurant, and there would be five or six people. Now there’s a lot more, plus social media, and this desire to bring other people down.

Social media is so influential now.
I never really had experienced hate in school with girls and boys. What I do experience is social media, and so every day, people comment, ‘You’re fat, you’re ugly, you’re rude, you’re all this stuff,’ and I just don’t like it at all. I don’t want anyone to have to go through that.
I feel like it’s social media that’s opened that door. We’re able to accumulate and generate our own fan base. Once we do that and put our own work in, labels take notice that we have our own following.
I think writers have to be proactive: they’ve got to use new technology and social media. Yes, it’s hard to get noticed by traditional publishers, but there’s a great deal of opportunity out there if you’ve got the right story.
With social media, you don’t just publish a book and figure you’ve done your part; your fans want to talk to you, have a conversation. It means, though, that you can connect with your readers like never before, so you don’t have to guess what they like – you can ask.
One of my ideas is that we post every vote on Facebook and on social media so that voters have an opportunity to hold their elected official accountable.

For some reason, I’m constantly attacked on social media in terms of how I dress. I’ve never understood that. That’s been very hard.

I have a message for all the birdies who try to get in touch with people online who they think might help them to meet me or give my personal information. That will never happen. Don’t believe anything anyone tells you on social media about me because not even my parents know what I am up to.
I don’t live my life in a social way. I don’t put everything out on social media. I don’t live that reality lifestyle. At the same time, I’ve always been private, ever since I was in high school.
Lots of people hide behind social media to spread ridiculous rumours and cause problems where they don’t exist.
Regarding social media, I really don’t understand what appears to be the general population’s lack of concern over privacy issues in publicizing their entire lives on the Internet for others to see to such an extent… but hey it’s them, not me, so whatever.
The power of social media is it forces necessary change.
The leverage and influence social media gives citizens are rapidly spreading into the business world.

I think there’s a misconception that I’m opposed to social media.
The place where I think social media fails is in showing the knowledge, the tradition of stitching the clothing, of cutting the fabric, of the tannery, of the skinning of the jewels – this knowledge needs respect. Online and social media is the future, but we need to learn from the past, too.
As a function of the easy access to information provided by the Internet, and the ease with which it can be shared thanks to social media, consumers are now better informed as to the behavior of brands and the multiple global crises we face.

Twitter is awesome to share news with fans, but I would never choose to only have social media and put everything in my life on display.

And that I should never source that worth from other people, especially strangers on social media. They don’t know who I am, the length of my journey, who I am as a person.
I’m pretty much on all social media, but Instagram is the coolest, and I use it the most because I take a lot of pictures and I like to post them, but I link them all to each one.
I have no interest that I go to India or go to Hollywood or Bollywood. I’m not interested. I am a social media sensation. This is what I like.
I don’t live my life seeking validation from people on social media.
We do a lot of things that kind of annoy people and our fan base. We try not to get overloaded on it. For us, that means we don’t do social media stuff – we have an Avenged Sevenfold social media, but none of the band members have Facebooks or any sort of Twitter.
For an older generation of employees, social media often remains misunderstood and underutilized.
I would absolutely love to go back to the simplicity of the ’80s, where there wasn’t texting, social media, iPhones, or smartphones. I love the fact that you would go home and check your messages. I’m not well suited to the world of modern technology.
I had to turn social media off. It was just crazy. Just to see the messages rolling through and people shouting, ‘Till beat Tyron,’ booking flights and booking hotels, that’s becoming the norm right now.
Technology has allowed me to reach my fans directly. Social media: it has been a complete revolution of how to interact, promote and share things.
Technology and social media have brought power back to the people.
The meteoric rise of the ‘wellness’ industry online has launched an entire industry of fitness celebrities on social media. Millions of followers embrace their regimens for diet and exercise, but increasingly, the drive for ‘wellness’ and ‘clean eating’ has become stealthy cover for more dieting and deprivation.
Nowadays, social media is the easiest place to go to find something.
Who needs soap operas now when we have social media timelines? Now you can get a similar drama fix by just paying attention to your friends and family members’ Facebook pages.
All of us in the modern world are constructing our identities, largely through social media, for a larger audience.
Very few people use landline phones for much of anything. So when you talk about things like online chat and social media messages and emails, what you’re really talking about is the full extent of human communication.
The Arab Spring is kind of a perfect model for how people are going to use technology to act collectively in their own interest in the future. There’s never been a revolution that was coordinated by social media to the degree that the Arab Spring was.
Social media is kind of the same across the board, so you just have to know how to engage your audience, and you will be popular on any platform that comes up.
Good social media is authentic. What makes social media work is actually having something to say.
I don’t think it is just in the world of politics. The lack of civility in society as a whole, some of it, I believe, is very much fueled by social media and frankly, it’s fueled by the fact that journalism is not journalism any more.
We get caught in our little silos and end up working against ourselves. And I think social media culture really encourages that, because you’re really just shouting into a void hoping someone picks up on what you’re saying.
I would deactivate every single comment on any social media. You should be able to post what you want, say what you want, be what you want without anybody judging you.
The beauty of the space station, and of human spaceflight, is that it is now at a level of maturity where you can invite people on-board, which is what I worked so hard to do on social media and all the videos I made.
Social media is called social media for a reason. It lends itself to sharing rather than horn-tooting.
With the growing reliance on social media, we no longer search for news, or the products and services we wish to buy. Instead they are being pushed to us by friends, acquaintances and business colleagues.
I love Instagram. I find it to be one of the truly positive social media things that exist.
Leaving the record companies tweaked something inside me and I realised I don’t have to deal with labels to make something happen. If I want to meet someone, I don’t have to go through the label – I’ll just go to them. I took my life in my hands and social media has just helped me do that more.
I think a lot of social media creators have always been, like, content and haven’t pushed the limits because no one else had pushed the limits before. I say to myself, ‘How can I create my own TV show online every day and actually make it a real production and put effort into it?’
It no longer counts as remarkable that Egyptians organized their uprising on social media.
Technology moves so fast and social media moves so fast because everyone wants the new thing, but also, everyone wants to be where their parents are not. Once the mom got a Facebook and a Twitter and an Instagram, I don’t want to be there anymore.
The reason people need advice on using social media is that they’re a much more complex and nuanced way to communicate than a conversation or email.
You don’t want to be first, right? You want to be second or third. You don’t want to be – Facebook is not the first in social media. They’re the third, right? Similarly, you know, if you look at Steve Jobs’ history, he’s never been first.
Social media is an information channel; it’s like radio or TV… In Cisco, we made a lot of money on public protocol. I think the social media model replicates that protocol.
Social media has given us this idea that we should all have a posse of friends when in reality, if we have one or two really good friends, we are lucky.
Social media stars are only relevant because they make content, so they can never stop doing that.
I am a huge fan of using social media to connect with people because I think there was this ‘ivory tower’ aspect of journalism where people might read a byline for years but have no idea about the person who was behind it and never get to communicate with them or ask them a question.
You really can’t spend money on social media unless you really try. Social media is really more about effort than expense.
TV is changing in terms of how we are consuming sports. Appointment viewing no longer exists, as between social media and the Internet, people already have the news and can get the highlights – so now people want the opinions.
I have to be natural and not doing anything fake, not lying on social media, in interviews and life.
There is a continuous stream of opinions on governance issues expressed daily, not only in our Parliament and in the print media, but also on talk-radio and social media.
Because of social media, it’s bridged the gap between the advertisers and fashion and allowed people to find their group. It really widens what people are viewing and allows brands to see what the public wants to see.
The dream for many millennial women is to make a difference as social or political entrepreneurs. They are using the social media and marketing tools they have mastered to empower less fortunate women and direct them onto career tracks that women have traditionally avoided, like science and technology.
Every brand has something on the Internet, whether it’s video or doing something on social media. It’s just another form that brands are starting to realize they have to be a part of.
Social media is great, I guess, but it feels like technology is the sapper of innocence.
I don’t get Twitter or social media. I really don’t understand it or read it. I see it as a distraction.
My heritage is Pakistani, and I have loads of Pakistani fans on social media who I would love to connect with.
The work is done; it is what it is. You do the work, and you hope people like it, and if they don’t, don’t read it. I don’t read reviews. I don’t have social media, so I’ll stay away from that; it’s easy.
I am not a lonely person. I am happily married and not looking for companions on social media.
I have said that propaganda, misinformation, and disinformation have always been part of political warfare. Social media and other new platforms have given it a new life and reach through which the fake news phenomenon can reach everywhere.
As you live your life and accumulate friends, both IRL and on social media, ask yourself, are you a bully too?
It is a tremendous honor to be named poet laureate, but one that I find humbling as well, because it’s the kind of thing that makes me feel like – even as it’s been bestowed upon me – I must continue to live up to what it means… Being the younger laureate in the age of social media is a new challenge.
Social media should be a true sense of who you are.
Through social media, young people are constantly being pinged about a whole slew of potentially better matches or social activities.
I guess NBC must have noticed that one of my main staples is social media. So, when they approached me for ‘The Voice,’ I thought, ‘Why not be the first one to do it?’
I dislike the phrase ‘social media.’ ‘Social media’ is merely a way to describe new tools in an old and narrow paradigm where we measure success by how many people are reached.
Britain and America are two examples where social media will only show you what you like.
ISIL’s widespread reach through the Internet and social media is most concerning, as the group has proven dangerously competent at employing such tools for its nefarious strategy. ISIL uses high-quality, traditional media platforms as well as widespread social media campaigns to propagate its extremist ideology.
I’m not really about spending every second on social media. I think there’s a lot more useful things you can do with your time.
Social media can be very effective in creating movements. In the beginning, that is how I first got attention.
We have been talking with leaders: Change is coming; you can no longer have a closed regime with an open society – satellites, social media, the Internet – you have this kind, this kind of society moving forward, and you are running this closed regime; this is not sustainable. This cannot continue.
I think it’s important to note that after the airstrikes began in Iraq and Syria, ISIS began a very aggressive social media campaign calling for these types of attacks, these lone wolf attacks.
Social media is a giant distraction to the ultimate aim, which is honing your craft as a songwriter. There are people who are exceptional at it, however, and if you can do both things, then that’s fantastic, but if you are a writer, the time is better spent on a clever lyric than a clever tweet.
In an age when many of our citizens casually reveal information about themselves in social media wildly beyond anything imaginable only a decade ago, it would seem to be a useful exercise in civics to re-educate the public about the value and purpose of protecting against unwarranted government intrusion.
Social media overwhelms me.
The thing about social media is that someone’s going to hate what you do no matter what you do.
I don’t tweet or do any other social media, so I don’t know what’s being said out there.
You learn the hard way. That’s the thing with social media. Nobody knows what they’re doing.
In the coming years, if not sooner, social media will become a powerful tool that consumers will aggressively use to influence business attitudes and force companies into greater social responsibility – and, I suggest, move us towards a more sustainable practice of capitalism.
We created #BlackLivesMatter. We created a platform. We used our social media presence online in order to forward a conversation about what is taking place in black communities.
The sports space is so full of opinion that you aren’t hearing from the athletes just speaking for themselves. We are such a Twitter-oriented society with radio talk shows, TV talk shows and social media – what you are missing is the authentic, unfiltered aspect of who these people are.
I really feel like social media – it’s like all these tiny stages that you put yourself on. And you come to rely on these likes and favorites, and it’s this applause and this validation that you start to need. Then it’s like you don’t know how to soothe yourself, and I think it’s very pernicious.
Don’t have just anyone run your social media. I think it’s insane when brands or celebrities relegate their social media to an intern or someone who does not know them well.
Driving a car is no longer about zooming down clear lanes, the joy and freedom of the road flowing through your hair like a fine westerly breeze. It’s about solid traffic, petrol fumes, spy cameras, eco-guilt, and simultaneous social media.
You don’t even know if the person you’re communicating with online is actually that person. And your persona on your social media – your Facebook or Twitter – may not be the person you are in real life. So then, who is the real person? Is it somewhere in between?
I think that women of color use social media to make our voices heard with or without the amplification of white women. I also think that, many times, when white women want our support, they use an umbrella of ‘women supporting women’ and forget that they didn’t lend the same kind of support.
If the League were real, today, they’d most likely be sued by every person they ever saved. They’d be subpoenaed by every authority in every jurisdiction imaginable; hearings upon hearings. There’d be waves of accolades followed by tsunamis of boos from social media.
Social media is the ultimate equalizer. It gives a voice and a platform to anyone willing to engage.
People are scared to have a strong opinion because, with social media, almost everyone lives the life of a celebrity.

I look at social media as a place to have fun. It should be positive.
This must be such a relief for the TV executives managing a business in decline, suffering from a thousand cuts from social media and other new platforms. Trump arrived on the scene as a kind of manna from hell.
How can we be free when we are prisoners to social media, in a world without privacy? How can we be free when our every movement is tracked and every conversation is recorded and can easily be held against us? How exactly are we free if we are tethered to our cell phones?
I am worst when it comes to social media.
Whether it’s singing, modeling, acting, you name it, they always label you as the YouTuber, the social media kid, the social media star. It’s something that I’ve heard – a lot – but I kind of just put it to the side.
When I was in high school, I got bullied through social media – on the Internet, on my Facebook. That was hard for me, and I think social media has made it easy for people to bully other people on-line because they can just post anything they want anonymously.
I have often felt the worlds of social media and the Internet are like a weird dreamscape. Even physically, when you are looking at your phone, you are out of it.
Social media has had a corrosive effect on government and trust, and I think it is a real cause for concern.
Social media can be so damaging.
Social media has truly helped my career because it has given models a voice. And a voice is something that we want to see a change in the industry.
I’m not trying to live a social media life or a life to just be in a magazine.
I think that social media platforms and technology have been the accelerator for the push for the populist-style administrations in democratically elected presidents.
One of the ironies of a conference dedicated to all things digital and virtual is that the best ways to connect with people are surprisingly old-school. Social media tools can improve the odds of a serendipitous encounter at SXSW, but old-fashioned hustle, palm-pressing and – above all – creativity go a long way.
It’s going to be interesting to watch presidential elections in around 2040, when voters can dig up candidates’ teenage angst pics and posts from old social media and discussion forum archives.
One of the best things I get to do is meet people that have been to the shows and listened to the music. I still don’t indulge in the social media side of things, so that’s my way of starting conversations – actually hearing people talk.
I’m not sure whether it’s going to be the downfall of Rome – social media. There are too many secrets.
The role of social media is critical because it helps to spread cognitive dissonance by connecting thought leaders and activists to ordinary citizens rapidly expanding the network of people who become willing to take action.
Celebrities have more influence to be able to reach out to people, but people are becoming famous on Facebook and social media every day.
Social media, unfortunately, just makes it a lot easier to be jealous. It sets up false expectations of reality, so it’s really easy to look at someone else’s life online and assume that they have everything going great for them and that their life is perfect.
Connecting with your fans in that way is just the coolest thing, because I am very fortunate that my fans let me be very open on my social media – never really judge me for that or anything.
People are not just going to bars and meeting people; they’re connecting through social media.
What you say about me, my family, and on my social media says a lot more about your character than it does mine.
Social media is key to promoting the editorial posts on my website.
I’m theatrically trained. Before Vine, before any of the social media, I was an actor. I was going to auditions; I was taking the classes.

I have a choice – I can either watch all the dailies, or I can follow the social media. I can’t do both.
I’m naturally shy, so the social media thing is new to me. I haven’t really figured out how my voice sounds on social media, you know? I don’t want to tweet everyday just for the sake of tweeting. I want to make sure whatever I do there is honest. Social media can very quickly get fake, and I don’t want to be that guy.
Every sector of society looks at digital analytics in a productive way. Limiting my ability to use them is just unacceptable. And by the way, Congress conducts polls using traditional methods. No one is using social media analytics as a substitute for that.
While social media is a one of the best tools to spread brand awareness, network, stay updated on the latest industry news, and catch up with friends or family, it’s another huge time waster.
Without social media, I wouldn’t have young girls messaging me from Australia or Mexico City or the Midlands, but I do wonder if I’d be on it if it wasn’t part of my job.
Social media is huge. You can give people a behind-the-scenes look at your life.
My readers and my audiences have turned into my followers. They are more than interested in what I have to say in the subjects of sales, loyalty, attitude, networking, business social media, and becoming a trusted advisor.
The EU can lead the world toward more humane technology. But doing so requires thinking more broadly about reining in social media platforms to prevent them from degrading our democracies.

The most important thing in the professional wrestling industry in this day and age of technology and the Internet and social media is to be able to make wrestling unpredictable.
I have never joined the Facebook world because, to be truthful, social media scares me to death. It is kind of crazy how huge that world is, so I have never joined Facebook, but I do have Instagram and Twitter.
It’s easy to blame technology for what we perceive to be a vast disconnect between people. We’re so wrapped up in social media, texting, online dating – in many ways, we’re addicted to our devices.
Social media has made the web all about me, me, me.
I don’t like social media at all, to be honest.
It takes a long time to free oneself from chatter – goals, social media, image, persona. And if you’re able to move through in that way, you can actually start trying to create from a different place.
One of the great ironies of the social media era is that some of the least social people in the world created it.
Online I see people committing ‘social media suicide’ all the time by one of two ways. Firstly by responding to all criticism, meaning you’re never going to find time to complete important milestones of your own, and by responding to things that don’t warrant a response. This lends more credibility by driving traffic.
Social media can be a powerful tool to listen to, engage with and gain access to customers that you would otherwise not be able to connect with.
I believe that if I wasn’t born in this technological and ‘social media’ era, I would have found another way to express myself.
Social media is basically the entire reason I have a career right now. Like everything, my readership for ‘Nimona’ came because I was active on Tumblr.
The creative destruction that social media is currently unleashing will change more than technology or the leader board of the Fortune 100. It is driving a qualitative shift in the nature of relationships between brands and their customers.
The kids are fixing their eyes on social media, and the stories they’re looking at may not be the most important things. I’m guilty of that, too. Do you want to look at Instagram or the news? It’s a difficult, and weird, situation.
People take things at face value on social media. Earnestness is the assumption.
I think at first the Flume project really started out as an online thing. I used Facebook and SoundCloud, and I think we got lucky because it felt like a bit of a golden age of those social media platforms. So I managed to create quite a solid fan base online.
I am overworked sometimes. I’m tired sometimes. I’m sleepy sometimes. And social media allows me to show you that I’m human, too.

Unfortunately, often found next to things that are true are an enormous number of things that are not – in websites, videos, books and on social media.
It’s weird how much social media affects someone’s career. Deals and jobs are sometimes based off how many followers you have, which is a little sad. I would rather that not be the case, but I understand that it’s important.
I want to give the music attention and be in the studio. I want to give all my attention to my music, my kids, my family, so I just wanna focus on certain things besides social media.
I’m skilled in the Twitter and Instagram sense of the social media verse.
A ‘social media fast’ is a fast, I suppose like any other. In this case, you’re simply giving up whether it be a device or a particular type of social media site. And I do this at least once weekly.
Social media and music in general have been changing so fast. You can go on Twitter and go from one artist to another. What I really like about it is the opportunity to communicate directly with your fans.
My view of social media is that it is a set of tools, not a religion.
My two daughters live on Facebook, and social media is their mode of communication.
My social media world is detached from my friendship world. I’ll have friends in real life that I don’t follow on social media, because I don’t really look at social media as the way of connecting to friends. For me, social media is like a business tool.
I get on social media sometimes. I think it’s good to find a balance and to be able to put your phone down.
I would be much less stressed out without social media. I am constantly afraid of getting hacked. It’s like being afraid of stepping on glass.
I am making use of social media as a marketing tool. It’s a great way to market yourself and your projects. It’s a free marketing tool.
Everyone needs Skin Fetish 003 in their kit. It’s the ultimate everyday essential for runway skin that looks as legendary in the office or on the street or as it does on social media.
Now we’re dealing with a younger generation of terrorists that are very, very savvy with computer skills, very savvy over the Internet, and very savvy with social media of the likes that we have never seen before.

Customer service teams at many companies have already embraced social media, often out of necessity.
Twitter and Tumblr and Vine and Instagram and Facebook and Myspace, all these things are social media tools that we were all told we had to have, and what we’re realizing is that, no you don’t! No you don’t.
It’s interesting now; with social media, you are actually interacting with fans.
In terms of social media, I try to have my voice heard loudly in the cacophony of other influences whether from television and the Internet or social media… I want my voice to be heard in terms of the standards and values that I try to pass on to my kids.
Of all the questions I get asked as an undocumented immigrant in the United States, there are two – asked in various permutations via email, social media or in person – that chill me to the bone: ‘Why don’t you just make yourself legal?’ And: ‘Why don’t you get in the back of the line?’
There was a lot of hype about social media in President Obama’s first campaign. It was important, but it wasn’t as important as I think people let on.

There are things in life that don’t come to me naturally, and social media and the Internet and all those things are some of them, somewhere between taxes and cooking!
Musically, I wear many hats. I’m the social media director. I conceptualise the videos, write the songs, do the press. I’m not a major label act.
Personally, even though I have a great PR team, no one except my husband and I touch any of my 10 social media accounts. It’s a lot of work, but I know that my brand, my image, and my voice are authentic to me.
Social media enables us to talk about issues, shine a light on problems, and raise awareness of struggles that might have gone unnoticed. On the flipside, it also allows for a lot of noise and distractions. Sometimes it doesn’t create the best environment for a healthy discussion and can lead to trolling.
Social media is natural to me, and it’s a very immediate way of saying something. It’s the way politics are done these days. In modern politics, you can’t ignore that even if you wanted to. I can’t imagine doing politics without it.
Social media has changed the world forever. We’re not going to go backwards. People are not going to accept being poor, accept being excluded anymore.

I’m not on social media; I don’t watch TV. I’m really out of it.
Even with all the negativeness of the whole social media thing, I still think it’s leaps and bounds more positive.
I know having a social media profile removed is a 21st century privileged problem – but it is the way a lot of us live. These profiles mimic our physical selves and a lot of the time are even more important. They are ways to connect with an audience, to start discussion, and to create change.
I’m becoming more and more of a social media participant, so of course I can always be found everywhere from Twitter to Insta to Facebook.
We are reminded repeatedly, often by older men, that western civilization has died on the altar of social media.

I’ve probably got the most eclectic social media there is because it literally goes from hanging out with my son at a park, to, like, Madonna’s house, to a rave in Africa.
At first, social media was just about networking. But now that I have to network, I make sure that every platform makes money for me. You can do something on Facebook.

We’re dealing with an enemy now, ISIS, that has a very sophisticated social media program.

I had become obsessed with the control-freak aspect of photography and with the rising importance of the image in our social media age it ended up working.
