Artsy beautiful interesting facebook pages to "like" and follow
July 27, 2016 7:49 PM   Subscribe

My collective facebook friends seem to have stopped posting anything interesting and my timeline has devolved into a 24/7 shouting match on politics/privilege/the election. I need new stuff. What are some beautiful, unique, artsy, stylish, etc pages I can follow. Interested in: art, beauty, style, fashion, weird stuff, horror, psychedelic, etc. NOT interested in: cheesy motivational stuff, cult of positive thinking, politics, war, guns, sports, cars etc. Give me your best! Bonus question: is there a easy way to filter out the angry posts but still see when a friend posts cute family pictures or life updates?

Den of Iniquities if you like goth/horror.

Benjamin Lacombe does a lot of Alice in Wonderland - inspired art, and it's awesome.

sites I love: World of Birds, Marine Bio, The Earth Story, Neuroscientist news, Stephen Ellcock (art curator) I actually look at these sites and have muted most of my family and friends feeds. Improves Facebook immensely. ;)

For art/fashion/interesting visuals and social media, you should check out Instagram if you haven't already. WAY less political outrage and angry diatribes and way more neat things to look at.

BONUS ANSWER FIRST: For blocking specific topic posts, Fluff Busting Purity has a stop words setting. (Without FBP, I wouldn't touch facebook with a 10-foot pole!) or

Rather than suggest specific pages, I'd encourage you to search on your interests, as specifically as you can. Break each subject down, for example: what kind of art? what artists? what subjects? what media?
