Default Facebook, Twitter or Instagram?

I'm curious...what social networks are you all on? Is it mostly Facebook? Is Instagram more popular than Twitter? I have no idea, so I thought I'd ask.

Which one do you use the most?

I don't use any of them.
Probably uncommon for a 36 year old fella.

For those of you who said "None"...where do you find out about disc golf tournaments, leagues and whatnot?

Word of mouth. My DG buddies are more than happy to talk about upcoming events so I often hear it anyway, or I can ask and be told within seconds.

A buddy of mine is a TD as well so he's always promoting verbally and on social media. Doesn't hurt there's posters hung around my local courses, and if not I can always check my local DG website.

I only have an account on FB, but I hate using it. Pretty much only family and boy scouts on there right now. As soon as my boy is done, I'm deactivating.

I do get a small amount of league info there though. Mostly DGScene for tournaments

We have a pretty active local scene with two B&M shops with their own websites. I get most of my info there or on PDGA site. I will occasionally look at the local FB page but i'm not a member. Plus the local shops and the various clubs in the region coordinate the best they can scheduling events and usually have a pretty thorough list available by mid winter to early spring.

Plenty of local FB groups. No interest in Twitter or Instagram.

I'm not active in any, but FB has the most info.

All depends.. Insta is 4 sure the most popular with younger peeps and snapchat as well. Twitter is good for connecting with bigger names on the fly or following interests. Facebook has become weird for biz. Purposes with the adds etc but very popular obviously. Ive become to really hate it though.

I reluctantly got a facebook account so I could keep up with the local disc golf scene, mostly so I know when to avoid some random leagues or event. That's all I use it for though, and once in a while to find the owner of a disc. Other than that, I don't use it, I think social media is/has become ridiculously trivial and mind numbing and I don't really care to have cyber space friends (real ones are enough of a pain in the ass as it is some times).
