Photo taken from Pinterest
I’ve been hearing and reading about Pintrest so I decided to join and see what all the fuss is about. My conclusion is that it’s a great fun and I’m sure it will help with connecting people. Come and have a look at my profile here
Pinterest is a Social Media platform that allows you to add pictures that you find online onto a board. The site’s mission statement is to “connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting.” It’s like a virtual corkboard.
In January 2012, comScore reported the site had 11.7 million unique users, making it the fastest site in history to break through the 10 million unique visitor mark. Even many well know brands like Whole Foods and Etsy are on Pinterest.
When pinning a photo to a board, it will state where the photo was from. For example, when I pinned a photograph of my blog it shows the URL to my blog. In addition, when you click on the photo, it will bring you to the original website, so in other words – traffic to your blog
I think it’s a great way as well to create YOUR Dream board!
It appears to be the hottest new Social Media website in 2012. And it’s a way to connect with people and see people’s interests with pictures.
Be careful though. Pinterest can be very addictive. Apparently users spend more time on Pinterest than on Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus combined!
As with everything, make sure you read their terms and condition, just to be on the safe site.
