Quote from: Question
What is your stance regarding the of use social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, and Skype? Do we need Fatawa from a Mujtahid in order to make use of social media? Does one have to be a Mujtahid in order to comprehend the verdict regarding the use of such social media? Also regarding those who claim the use of such social media is Kufr, can we call them Khawarij?

Shaykh'ul Islām Ibnu Taymiyyah (Rahimahullāh) stated,

والعالم يعرف الجاهل؛ لأنه كان جاهلا، والجاهل لا يعرف العالم لأنه لم يكن عالما

"The Ālim (scholar) recognizes the Jāhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jāhil. The Jāhil does not recognize the Ālim since he has never been an Ālim." (Shaykh'ul Islām Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majmū'ul Fatāwā, 13/235)
