Ok folks... if someone is posting something they've made, a selfie or something else they might be proud of, they don't need your negative, weird comments. If you've got nothing to say but something unpleasant, then fuck off

I'm new to making "memes" so any _constructive_ criticism is very welcome. But for younger people who have grown up with social media I expect they'd prefer uncritical praise and boosts.

@floppyplopper I don't think it's about younger people specifically. I think it's partly about judging whether it's right to make a joke. If someone doesn't know you, it can come across pretty unpleasantly. Also, when it comes to criticism I think it's best to wait if people have asked?

@PublicChaffinch
This is very good advice. I'm going to ask for constructive criticism more often when I toot on here. I'm new to this but really enjoy this creative outlet. And I know there are a lot of very talented people on here.
