"Maybe because it is I am a female but I love social media."
Plenty of guys like it to. I think it has more to do with personality. Overall, I just don't care that much for people (no surprise there), so I have no interest in social media. I have no interest in being social much at all beyond very small groups of people who I like/love and desire to spend time with/on. Or, I guess, in other words, I'd rather spend quality time with/on a few people who I truly care about, than simply spend 'ordinary' time with large groups of people, many of who I don't really care that much about. (As for my forum postings, I guess I just like hearing myself 'talk.')
I once had an acquaintance who loved sending those 'glurge' emails and telling everyone how much she was thinking of them by sending the email. I asked her to please stop sending me the inane emails, and that if she was really thinking of me she'd take the time to send me a short, personal note instead of a mass emailed (usually fake) glurge email. She stopped sending me anything. I was quite alright with that.
Now lest this be taken as a criticism of social media and those who enjoy it, it's most definitely not. Do what makes you happy/what you enjoy (as long as others aren't hurt, of course). There's no right or wrong. I'm simply offering an example of the diversity of the human condition.
