Social media note: Pinterest glitch

Some months ago I started using Pinterest because I realized it's a handy tool if you're teaching art. For me the problem of Pinterest has been that the picture flow it provides is often overwhelming. I also feel that it's one of those social medias that reduces the time we spend looking at one picture. Pictures are like fast food and the quantity overcomes quality. Also many pictures circulate Pinterest without a tag or a link to the person who made the picture.

This morning when I opened Pinterest, the page had some problems (probably because of the new look). The page glitched and you couldn't even see one picture fully since it put all the pictures into a pile. I thought the error described well the nature of Pinterest.

Now the picture flow is so fast you can only see a glimpse of one picture. It is a fine day for the artists who spent hours and hours creating the pictures. Their work of art is now only a stripe in the sea of stripes. (I like the collages though).
