Daniel Craig has insisted that he will never join social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter.

The Cowboys & Aliens star told Seven magazine that he feels that the internet allows people to be disconnected when they should just spend time together in person.

Craig said: "I am bloody not [on Facebook]. And I'm not on Twitter either... 'Woke up this morning, had an egg'? What relevance is that to anyone? Social networking? Just call each other up and go to the pub and have a drink.

"There's some talk of a new class-system paradigm - that, in future, the world will be divided between those who 'get' social networking and those who don't. I'm really not bothered. But I hope the generations to come learn to be a little bit cynical and learn how to mess it up a bit."

Craig also admitted that he occasionally Googles his own name, but tries to avoid reading what's written about him as he believes it to be "worse than smoking crack".

"It's like there's a bunch of sociopaths out there who want to go out and rip you to pieces," he added.

Craig will soon star in a new James Bond movie which is scheduled for release on October 26, 2012 in the UK and on November 9, 2012 in the US.
