In this social media obsessed age not everyone wants to share their lives with the world and that’s OK

Dove Cameron doesn’t like how social media makes her feel
The Descendants actress has just used her Instagram Stories to confess that social media can really get her down.
“I really hate how Instagram makes me feel, I think, and I hate how Twitter and any kind of social media makes me feel. Whether I'm looking at other people's lives or how I portray my life, I just hate the whole thing. I hate it. I think that they're something super wrong with staring at other people that much and I think there's something really wrong with staring at yourself that much.”
But she does acknowledge it’s powers can be used for good: “I'm not, like, condemning social media,” she as part of her posting spree. “I think that there are loads of you know, examples of when it's been used for good and when it's brought people together and blah blah blah and I know all of that. But I don't think that that’s… that's not exclusively what it is.”
Jennifer Lawrence is scorned by the internet
J-Law just doesn’t seem like the biggest fan of the internet. Or Email. Or just, like, technology in general.
“I will never get Twitter,” she told Radio 1 in 2014. “I’m not very good on the phone or technology. I cannot really keep up with emails so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me … If you ever see a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that says it’s me, it most certainly is not because the Internet has scorned me so much. And I feel like I’m that girl in high school like, ‘You wanna talk about her? I’ll take my hoops off, I’m ready to go.’”
Daniel Radcliffe wants his privacy taken seriously
Dan makes a good point about using social media and wanting to maintain an actual private life.
“I don't have Twitter and I don't have Facebook,” he previously told Sky News. “I think that makes things a lot easier because if you go on Twitter and tell everybody what you're doing moment to moment and then claim you want a private life, then no one is going to take that request seriously.”
Elizabeth Olsen doesn’t want to be touched
Elizabeth just doesn’t want to be touched by anyone… in a figurative way. Honestly, it makes sense when you read the quote.
“I don’t [use] social media, and I feel like that’s how people control their image. My image, in my mind, is just to disappear. I just want people to see the work that I’m proud of. I feel like you let people touch you when you have Instagram or Twitter, and I don’t want to be touched all the time. I’m not going to do it - ever,” she told Fashion back in 2015.
Mila Kunis won’t risk her security
Mila Kunis worries that giving fans access to her private life via social media is too much of an invitation for them to try to get social irl.
“What I do and who I am are two different things and, to me, it was always really important to keep those things separate,” she told The Daily Telegraph in 2016.
“I don’t want people thinking they know me to the point where they feel comfortable coming in my house without being invited. For security reasons, [being on social media] just wasn’t worth it. I’d rather have my privacy.”
Charlie Puth doesn’t want his self worth coming from likes
The singer doesn’t want to confuse his self-worth with how many likes he receives, which is easily done tbf.
“We’re in a world of Facebook and Instagram. If you get a ‘like,’ you get this rush of dopamine to your mind. Social media is important, but we should venture out a little bit and not rely on it for self approval,” he told People last year.
And Charlie also thinks there should be more to life than looking at a smart phone: “There is nothing wrong with Instagram, it’s a huge reason for my social presence, but it’s also important to counter that with nature walks. It’s so important to realise your surroundings. If we’re going on a hike and you’re running around trying to get in shape, smell the air in the nature. You don’t have to always look in your phone. That’s the main thing.”
Adele just wants to keep it real
Adele just doesn’t have time to balance her song writing career with spending time fishing for likes.
“How am I supposed to write a real record if I’m waiting for half a million likes on a photo? That ain’t real,” she told Time magazine.
Mary-Kate and Ashely Olsen don’t want you having access all areas
Frankly, Mary-Kate and Ashley want you to mind your own business.
Mary-Kate told Vogue all the way back in 2011: “[My sister Ashley and I] have spent our whole lives trying to not let people have that accessibility, so [going on Twitter] would go against everything we’ve done in our lives to not be in the public.”
KeiraKnightley doesn’t want to be in a popularity contest
Keira shut down her Twitter account because of school days flashbacks
“It made me feel a little bit like being in a school playground and not being popular and standing on the sidelines kind of going, ‘Argh,'” she told Harper’s Bazaar UK. We totally get what she means.
Ed Sheeran can’t deal with the hate
Ed Sheeran is over dealing with Twitter trolls (he’s still a fan of Insta though).
“I’ve actually come off Twitter completely,” he explained to The Sun. “I can’t read it. I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things.
“One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it. The head-f*** for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much,” he added.
