This content is helpful, but it all looks the same and they don’t attract your attention the same way beautiful images do.

When you visit Pinterest all you see is beautiful images with a brief description. It’s not just regular images. They are normally unique and beautiful images which are vying for your attention. People share them for a reason. This has been one of the key reasons for its success – its image based, unlike other social media which are content based.
