Pins and Boards

A pininterest board reflecting different interests

I wrote last month about Pinterest and thought I would expand a bit more on it as it has proved such a useful tool but it is more than that. It is social networking at its finest. I share my boards and follow others who have similar interests. The Boards; these are the ways we collect and store what interests us, in a way cataloging them. Before Pinterest we would use lists or the firdge door or the good ole cork board.to put up the items that interest you, weren’t they a nightmare to add to though?. These boards are usually content specific but not necessarily so, and you can share your board for others to comment and (if you allow) add to. You can also have private ones!  One of my boards was for our new house and both my partner and I added to the board with friends helping out. We each got a visual of what the other was thinking, which was very helpful when looking at furniture and decorating instead of just agreeing with me  – the mans lazy option for peace, (when will they learn that it doesn’t work?) he could put his ideas up and I could get an actually sense of what he was visualising better than I could if he just told me! The Pins – these are the specific items that have caught your fancy, they normally have a visual and a link to the content website. Businesses are now actively looking into using Pinterest to promote their products. Actually using Pinterest is easy you just have to take that first step, this site will help some of you newbies out there.
