Interaction with friends and family on social media sites

I learnt very late that I better not interact with friends & family on social media sites. In fact, I have blocked few of my best friends on Facebook and don't follow any of my relatives, except one, on Twitter. I don't know or have forgotten the reason why I blocked them many years ago. But now it just doesn't matter, neither to them, nor to me. I believe, social media can or should never replace our personal interaction with friends and family. That is why I dislike large family and friends WhatsApp groups. It, eventually, kind of becomes a substitute for the actual interaction.
