Do you include hobbies in your CV?

A friend asked for feedback on their CV, and I thought adding some hobbies is a good idea, as it gives a little more depth as a person.
He strongly disagreed, saying the proper place to mention hobbies is F2F only.

What do you think?

IMO, Your friend's correct.

In CV, we only mention what are your strong points and the reason why the company has to invite and employ you, in the end. While keeping them as simple, yet meaningful.

Mention your hobby only when F2F session and the interviewer asks you.
