I see this word every day on my Twitter timeline. The time has come to comment on “interesting” content on social networks .
When I was doing my PhD, we had a professor with whom you couldn’t use the word “interesting” in any of your sentences. My colleagues warned me that for him, this term was synonymous with “bores me” and “I’m not interested.” At first, he surprised me but thinking about it, I understood shortly after his way of thinking.

What do you think when you use the word “Interesting.”
Many people speak before thinking. It turns the conversation into something empty and without content. Using the word “interesting”, only one showed that you had not forced yourself to think what you thought about a particular issue, and you used a filler word. Not using the head making use of that term for the teacher was like an offence.
I will not attempt to provide a new definition of the word “interesting” or to copy and paste an existing one. I’m going to take something for granted for once. Making the turn to social networks now can harm you to use it. It doesn’t matter if you use it in a hashtag (e.g. # attractive) or in another context (e.g. “interesting post”). Maybe there are more “teachers” out there than we think.
“Interesting” Content on Social Networks
Think about the following. When you go to the market, you don’t read “fresh fish” on the fishmonger’s signs either. It’s something you take for granted. In those that are so “clumsy” to add it, you start to doubt. Is it cool if they have to put it on?
The same thing happens in social networks because, by definition, it is assumed that everyone shares content that they consider attractive. It is not necessary to add it since it can even be counterproductive. In the best of cases, someone may think you have not read it, but you liked the title because it seemed “interesting” to you.
I hope I have made you think for the next time you use the word “interesting.”
