NEW YORK - Chiara de Blasio, daughter to the incoming New York mayor, says that she does not use social media.

Reports say that she finds social media serves as a distraction from real life.

News 12 asked borough residents what they thought about social media.

Many respondents said that social sites like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook are an easy way for friends to interact. Other said making sharable pictures and videos is a fun way to pass the time.
