I’ve been noticing that many people post photos of themselves or friends on Naktiv. Most comments ignore the person who is the subject of the photo, and only talk about the background. Nice lighting, nice beach, nice forest, oh happy day. The person who is subject of the photo seems to be a taboo subject for comments. I’m sure there is good reason for that. People don’t want to say “nice buns” and be accused of “sexual” content. I’m finding the whole behavior silly and even absurd.
Members don’t post our nude photos so you can appreciate our towel or our lighting. People are arguably the most social species. We all spend much of our time talking about, gossiping about, and looking at other people. I’m finding the vanishing people in photos kind of crazy making.
How about we go back to saying stuff like, “Thanks for posting the photo of YOU.” or “Nice seeing YOU.”
Your mileage may vary.
