For young people going through some of the most difficult, formative years of their lives—and let’s face it—the teen years are difficult and formative for all of us—We Heart It fills a valuable void not met by other social media sites.
The growing success of We Heart It and its monthly active user count suggests one thing: there’s room for more than one Pinterest on the market...Pinterest is the old timey aunt with the strongest market grip on the web scrap boarding space. We Heart It is the younger, up and coming rival.
It's the anti-Facebook, a place where people can be themselves, without worrying about what everyone else thinks.

It's something that's yours and only yours, and will never be clogged up by stuff from other people you vaguely know.
