Our New Interest: Pinterest

March 20, 2012

At some point recently, you have probably heard of the new social media craze, Pinterest. It has been written up in The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, and Mashable as well as many other notable blogs and columns. But you might be wondering to yourself, how do I use it and can I use this for my business?

Pinterest Overview Pinterest is a website where users can create virtual bulletin boards, filled with pins of their interests: recipes, quotes, fashions, anything their social media loving heart desires. In an arena where positive pin etiquette is encouraged, Pinterest is an upbeat social media site where the users are encouraged to credit their sources, avoid self-promotion, report objectionable content, and are simply nice to one another. With its immediate fame and estimated 3.3 million unique visitors in the month of October alone, Pinterest has the potential to become one of the major players in social media in the upcoming years.
