I like looking at pictures. And most of the time they don’t talk back. Facebook has become the platform of choice for the “Wizards” that shout from behind the screen. The problem is when they come out from behind the screen, they usually can’t engage in conversation. They only know how to fight back and spew their uneducated opinions. Debate is a great way to learn, but both sides need to be participating, and “Wizards” typically don’t know how.
So I enjoy engaging on Pinterest. I can like pictures without anyone telling me how wrong I am or what’s wrong with the picture. It’s between me and the pictures. I can click through to the content shared with the picture and comment there.
