I've always wondered if this would happen, but it hasn't yet.

Do employers actually bring this up? I'm sure they'll look into this during the screening process.

I focus my time on whats important in life. Social media is not on my list of what is important. Doing good at my job is what is important to me.

"I find that it's easier to maintain self-discipline and focus without having those distract me."

This is especially good if you're working at an office where your coworkers are probably fucking around on plebbook all day.

Also,
working for other people

I have nothing against Facebook or whatever, it's just that I don't think I would ever use a social media account if I had one. If I want to reach somebody, I'll have their phone and email anyways. What else do I need?

Are you trolling?
I think working for MS would be akin to selling your soul, a compartmentalized hierarchical spook shop and the epitome of modern enterprise datamining operations.

If you had no social media account for such a job it would be like a Jew in WW2 applying for an oven job, then again many did for the chance to survive a bit longer and small rewards. People will do anything to survive.

I had an interview for a position like that. The job description didn't even match what the position was even about. I had to decline because I'm not into social media at all. Tbh I thought those positions were fairy tales so I was pretty surprised. I'm not even mad about the bait and switch.

during interview

"Yea I tend to avoid that sort of thing"

after I start

To some coworkers: "Sure I'm on social media, I'm xxxxx"

To all others "hi here's an email response to your email question"

I'm well hidden. Popular-ish on LinkedIn but that's it. I'm so well hidden even my birth certificate is a proxy.

giving out social media accounts to clients was considered a huge break in professional boundaries, since I don't like to be awkward about refusing ANY sort of friend request I have just decided to delete my social media accounts.

I do have Social Medias such as whatsapp to keep in touch with people I know or linkedin for the professional aspect. However, I consider FB/Twitter to be a huge waste of time on a personal level, I am too busy to keep them updated and having one without using it extensively would just be confusing for others.

I don't mind having/using social medias such as FB or twitter on a strictly professional level if necessary though.
