I'm really tired of social media; I've grown to find all of it (FB, twitter, etc.) endlessly boring. For those of you who have come to the same place, have you just faded away, or do you leave notes on your open accounts to the effect that "I'm not really here anymore?" Prolly not going to shut it off altogether.

I haven't posted on my twitter account in years. I occasionally post on FB and I sometimes like to post on a friend's page, or "like" a favorite band, etc. But other than that, I'm pretty much done. There's no drama, I'm not doing this because of new privacy policies (though I don't like FB's sponsored ads), and I don't think less of anyone for being on those networks--I just don't find it interesting enough for me to participate in.
For those of you who have also suffered from Facebook fatigue, have you just faded away? Did you make a post saying that you're not there much anymore? Did you put that in your "about" section? Can you shut off messages so people can't contact you at an account you don't check? I don't think I want to close the whole thing down.
MeFi remains perpetually engaging though...
