Three short words: I love Pinterest.
Within a short period of time, Pinterest has quickly risen to become one of the top 10 most popular social media sites. And with good reason. I like to describe Pinterest as a cross between Facebook and Twitter with a twist.
Pinterest is for visual learners. It uses boards - think bulletin boards, and pins - think, well, pins. And then picture a wall in your living room where you've hung bulletin boards containing all your favorite things, organized by board. Examples of boards might be: a clothing board, design board, kitchen board, home board, DIY board, upcycle board, furniture board and so on. And every time I find a picture in a catalog, magazine or newpaper, I cut it out and pin it to one of my boards for inspiration.
But the fun doesn't end there. Let's say I'm looking for more inspiration. Now I can search Pinterest for anything under the sun to see what boards other people have created. I can follow that person or a specific board so I get to see everything on that person's board. And I can re-pin something from their board to any one of my boards. I can also leave a comment on their board.
Today I repinned something and within minutes 21 people had repinned my item. The viral nature of Pinterest is powerful. If you own or provide marketing services to a company whose products or services are visually based, this social media platform is for you.
