New Pinterest Is Sucky Pinterest

We love Pinterest. (*We being the internet collective.)

There’s not many new social media platforms that have stood the test of time like Facebook, Twitter, and PornTumblr. Pinterest came along 2 years ago and jack-knifed its way into our hearts.

It’s pretty, it’s simple, and it’s not overrun with trolls yet.

But then they go and change things thinking they know what we want.

No, Pinterest, we don’t want to NOT know who is re-pinning and liking our pins.

Teasing us with just the numbers is like being 16 and finding finding a Penthouse Letters books, only to start reading and notice all the good parts are blacked out.

It’s a major boner-killer, New Pinterest.

New Pinterest Hates Us
Pin THAT, New Pinterest.

Why else would we social media if we didn’t want to know who likes the stuff we do?


Sure, all the other things you’ve done on New Pinterest are pretty—the sidebar “pins from,” the pretty colors that take the place of pins while the page loads, the “People who pinned this also pinned.” All of that is nice.

But where the hell did the list of who re-pinned and who liked my pins go?

Look how pretty and nice Old Pinterest was for our egos:

Old Pinterest Loves Us

Clearly, you didn’t ask those of us who have low self-esteem and/or internet-related egos before you changed things, Pinterest.

New Pinterest

Bring back our ego boosters, Pinterest. Our self-esteems depends on you.

Can’t we start a petition or something?

It would be nice if you included the pinners before you make changes. We would like to vote or at least know what is coming. Your way is like going out to a fancy restaurant and being served limp salad. You are not at all what you started out to be.
