n) that I have left the ringer off on my phone because I don't want to talk to anyone.

However a bender with Margaret Atwood would be interesting

I'm with JRC. I actually did leave FB for nearly a year and nobody noticed.

I'm with jrc and Holly. I have *no* social media pages. I had a FB page for maybe a week - and that may be an overestimation. H has a FB page so if anyone wants to get in touch with me (which is about once every two or three years it seems) they can tell him. Most of my sibs have pages but I only look at them if H calls my attention to it.

So my answer is: none of the above. TBH my family is more acquaintances that happen to share the same parents than "family".

I have no social media profiles so none of the above unless you count SI and I don't think anyone would notice if I stopped posting for a couple of days.

I automatically just answered based on texting and S.I... I don't do any other social media.
