How? How is that possible? Surely you use them? I can't imagine being out of the loop, it's the quickest way to get news.
I don't use them and never have.
When you live in a country and next to a country where everyone gets taxed for radio and TV in order to finance proper journalism, you might as well use those sources to get your news, because they filter out the facts from all the nonsense that's making its rounds on the internet. Since those broadcasters (ORF in Austria; ARD and ZDF in Germany) also have their own internet platforms, all bases are covered.
Beyond that, there are plenty of websites that still value journalistic integrity.
Do you even know that social media track your activity and deliberately provide you with "news" that you should like based on your preferences? If your thread creation history on VGC is anything to go by, probably not. You should really think about that and seriously ask yourself if you've been fed with actual news or garbage.
Are you seriously claiming that state-controlled media is "proper journalism" that "filters out facts from all the nonsense"? If you truly believe that, I guess the state control is working exactly as intended.
Social media is not necessarily a good way to get news, that's true. But, getting it from government controlled sources is certainly no better.
