17 Examples of Anti-Social Social Media

From Friend-Avoiding Apps to Anti-Social Media Platforms

— December 18, 2013 — Tech
There are a ton of reports that suggest millennials are losing interest in Facebook and are displaying anti-social social media tendencies.

Privacy concerns frequently drive people away from the social network, but instead of feeling the need to delete or deactivate an account, there are several apps within Facebook which make communities more private, like the 'Sanctri' app, which provides a closed community for people to mourn the loss of a loved one in. 'Crypstagram' is another service that deals with privacy concerns and it only allows messages to be seen when the right password is given.

Another example includes apps for tracking friends — solely for the purpose of avoiding them. However, one of the most extreme examples of anti-social social media would have to be the guide on 'How to Disappear Online,' which is a step-by-step guide on how to remove yourself from the Internet entirely.
