Without saying anything/Facebook related

I've seen a few things on Facebook where it will say "Share a picture of you as a powerful woman/mom of an athlete/a book....without saying anything."

Why?? I feel like it's supposed to be a powerful thing where the picture speaks for itself, but I find it annoying. What would be wrong with adding, "Here's my daughter when she won the soccer competition. I was so proud!"

I've seen those and the irony is that the preview with the explanation that it's supposed to be without saying anything is often longer than any explanation. I often would love to hear the explanation.

Those annoy me too. Like you, I would rather just see the explanation.

Uh oh, is this the same? Last year I was tagged to post (without comment) covers of 10 favorite books for 10 days. I did and not only had fun doing it, my friends seemed to like it. Then, just this very minute, I was tagged the same way for album covers. I just posted #1. Does this annoy you?

I think itís the direction to not comment thatís annoying. Friday photo day wouldnít be nearly as much fun without people saying what it is. Same thing with books, record albums, strong women, etc. I want to know the story behind the pic

Blah blah blah

I don't repost crap like that.

I just posted a very similar complaint on my FB. I very much dislike the "without saying anything" requirement. So then I told people to post a picture and tell the story, and ended up with tons of replies. I guess other people want to tell the story too.

It is the direction to not say anything that really bothers me, like PoohBear said.
