Pinterest – the Next Thing in Social Media?
Dan Kim, Founder and CEO of Red Mango, turned me on to it. Each day, I’d get his posts with strikingly beautiful images of fashion, photography and things that just make the world smile. After a few weeks of this, I decided to join what millions have already discovered: Pinterest.
Pinterest is a place for people to visually display, comment on, repin and like photos and videos of things that interest them – no status updates, no messaging, no long soliloquies to read. Thus, the uses are endless. I’ve seen this tool used for shopping “wish lists”, idea/product generation, design inspiration, reminders, recipe sharing and good old collaboration on just about anything (just to name a few). Below are my current boards – some are filled in (probably too much) and others not at all (not yet anyway).
- Michael Kors
- Things That Make Me Smile
- My Style
- Dream Vacas
- Ingenious Innovation/Invention (I3)
