We love Pinterest. (*We being the internet collective.)
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.
Why else would we social media if we didn’t want to know who likes the stuff we do?
WE HAVE EGOS THAT NEED STROKING.
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:
Clearly, you didn’t ask those of us who have low self-esteem and/or internet-related egos before you changed things, Pinterest.
Bring back our ego boosters, Pinterest. Our self-esteems depends on you.
