Social Media Sites, Ranked and Illustrated by the Dowager Countess of Grantham

  1. 1.
    Twitter
    It's like a newspaper designed by you. Great for writers. Incidentally, you can follow me at @jennamartin14.
  2. 2.
    Facebook
    Who doesn't like friends? Who doesn't like events? Who doesn't like liking things they like? A little more irritating than Twitter and the content is less compelling (sorry, dear friends).
  3. 3.
    Pinterest
    I like the idea of having all my favorite recipes and wish list items in one place. I also like My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler. But if e.g. I want a dress, why would I tell other people about it? So it will sell out before I can buy it or become ubiquitous, thus making my style less unique?
  4. 4.
    Instagram
    Two of the purest joys in life are A) not worrying about what you look like and B) eating a meal while it's still hot, and I feel like Instagram intrudes on both.
