Are Cnet forums considered a social media ?

by itsdigger / April 19, 2017 11:11 AM PDT

I have to ask to because of an earlier conversation with Sister...
I was kind of miffed at sis because of a FB post that she made and ended up with me getting a bunch of phone calls from folks I don't even know over basically nothing.

Anyway , I said to her that I never use any kind of social media and I don't appreciate my name or anything posted anywhere on any social media ! Keep Me Out Of That Nonsense !

Sis told me that I'm full of it and said I'm on a social media here at the forums .
Am I full of it Confused

Depends on your login?

I'm going with yes if you use the Facebook login. I went with Cnet's own login and get very little spam from Cnet. With all the activity here I'm a bit surprised I keep this low a social media profile.

I do not consider cnet a social media. nobody socializes here - just ask or answer tech questions with a few political comments in between Happy
