Social media isn't for everyone!

Orange Is the New Black actress Taylor Schilling spoke out against what she is calling "Kim Kardashian culture" in the latest issue of Elle Canada.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians reality star came up when Schilling was asked why she doesn't share more of her life on social media.

"It has almost become a defiant thing at this point because I do not believe this celebrity Kim Kardashian culture is what I signed up for," the 30-year-old actress told the mag. "I'd rather create something honest than try to create something for a social-media account."

While Schilling does have an Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, she brought up some very valid points about online culture that you don't have to be a celebrity to relate to.

"There is something so sad about going online and seeing almost everyone shouting 'Notice me, notice me!' Which is such a human desire — to be acknowledged," she explained. "But me responding to that with some sort of  'You're noticed, you're seen' only perpetuates the loneliness. Because I'm not seeing you; I'm not noticing you. And whoever you are, you so deserve to be noticed and valued."

Schilling's social media burnout makes her nostalgic for a different time. "I feel lucky to have not grown up with the Internet because it forced me to get out, struggle and be so messy," she said.
