Pinterest Connects Individuals Through Their Common Interests
Often referred to as ‘Visual Twitter,’ Pinterest - a virtual bulletin board - brings a new format for connecting with individuals throughout the world by sharing common interests and allowing people to view others' virtual “pinned” items.
Many have used Pinterest to help them plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and even to organize and find new recipes. According to Pinterest, their intention is to connect individuals from across the world by Pinning their favorite things, such as books, decorating ideas, crafts, recipes, and much, much more.
To connect with others, you can LIKE their pins, and even REPIN them on your bulletin board. While the website has a few guidelines, people are free to pin whatever they like. Some of the guidelines include being nice when pinning about others’ comments and ideas, always noting a source or posting a link back to the original, and also avoiding content.
Once a person has requested or received an invite to become a member, it will take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks for an account to become activated. Once this happens, the pinning jamboree can begin. The site will start out by suggesting people to follow as well as by offering up categories to choose from to begin curating “pinned” items.
Pinterest has found that if people post the original source along with the pin, it makes it much easier for others to find the original source, rather than conducting a Google search or blog search. As Pinterest has just recently begun, they are still looking to work out the ‘bugs’ of how the website works and is laid out. They are looking for feedback about what works and what does not work, in the opinion of the site’s loyal users.
Pinterest is the perfect place to share your thoughts and ideas with others, and meet new individuals who share those same thoughts, ideas and interests. While there are many sites where you can find decorating ideas, or craft ideas, or recipes, this site has them all. If you are looking for a one-stop-shop, look no further – Pinterest has everything.
If you or anyone you know can benefit from using Pinterest, simply log on to www.Pinterest.com and request an invite to become a member. Then you can begin organizing your thoughts, ideas and favorites, including photos, which is what truly makes this connection site unique. It is important to build your social network, connect with others, especially those that have something in common with you, and this site makes it as simple as can be.
