I'm a sample of one ...
... but I can't tell you how many times people have become offended because I don't use modern so-called "social" media ... and when I point out that "We are talking face to face already, or over the 'phone already, why do I need to twit you, too?", some folks get really bent out of shape.
It's a mass psychosis, and really, really funny. In a sad kind of way. To me, anyway.
 I was an early user of the UNIX[tm] "talk", I've been using email since it was available in the Bay Area, I was a user of IRC and Usenet from the time of their availability. Back then, it was computer nerds talking to computer nerds ... and I'm here to tell you, as a survivor of the C/C++ and vi/EMACS (Mac/PC, etc.) wars on Usenet, us college educated nerds can generate a boat-load of complete nonsense. Why on EARTH would anyone with half a brain want TheGreatUnwashed's personal minutia to disturb them on a regular basis? My mind absolutely boggles at the very idea ... More to the point, how many hours of the World's Corporate billable time are frittered away on this crap? Gut feeling is hundreds of billions dollars. THERE is your recession, people. You're wasting time at work, playing with your toys.
