Oh, Pinterest...

Dear Pinterest,
I used to really love you. "Used to" being the operative words here.

I know everyone has to make money. But seriously? I don't have a friend named "Picked for you"! And if I did, I would unfollow her. She goes overboard with the pinning! She floods my feed with copycat pins. She can't be original, noooooo. She looks at my pins and then copies them. She sees me pin one idea (which I probably liked because, you know, I pinned it). But then she quickly searches and finds as many pins as possible that are somewhat related and then that's all I see!

Let me demonstrate:

Do you see how out of control user "Picked for you" is???

So, Pinterest, since I can't unfollow Picked for you, I did a quick search, and discovered this. I quickly installed the bookmark, and now this is what I see when I go on Pinterest:

Pinterest, you're ruining yourself and missing what people like about Pinterest.

I couldn't agree more! For a long time I resisted even clicking on, let alone pinning, anything from "picked for you", but eventually I found some worth saving. I guess I realized that feature wasn't going away whether I used it or not. I agree with you, though, it's ruining the Pinterest experience.

I know, I used to click on them too...but then I got a little rebellious about the whole thing and now I absolutely refuse! :-)
