Thoughts on having social media accounts?

Curious to know what everyone on here thinks about having social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.

For example, Instagram - other than being a time suck and the perfect way to carve out a "modelling" career if you're a bimbo, I don't see the value in it unless you want to flaunt your lifestyle to people you grew up with.

What do you guys think?

What do you love and hate most about working in IB?

Just curious, what do you all love and hate the most about working in investment banking? I'm referring to tasks, not hours or people or anything like that.

I'll start. I love modeling. I really hate filing/tracking company records for compliance. I imagine that's not something a lot of the bigger bank analysts do..

    McKinsey Who?

    Stumbled across this Forbes article from 1999 (link at bottom of post). When reading the first few paragraphs, you could easily think it was written yesterday (aside from the salary #'s). Makes the dotcom bubble of yore feel eerily familiar....

    " 7/26/1999 McKinsey who?
    A June graduate of UCLA's Anderson School of Management, 27-year-old Seth Baum scored choice job offers from Deloitte & Touche and Diamond Technology Partners. Diamond promised e-commerce consulting work and stock options on top of a $140,000 salary and bonus.

    He turned both down for a $75,000 job as senior marketing manager with, a one-year-old, on-line pet supplies retailer in San Francisco. Petstore offered him 50,000 stock options that could make him a millionaire when it goes public.

    "The old wave is banks and consultants," Baum says. "The new thing is 20-person Internet companies."
