What’s it all about Pinterest?

June 18, 2012

Pinterest is a very fast growing and popular social networking site.  Although you have to request to be invited to join, you’ll get a response within 2-3 days which will be a yes.

It’s an online bulletin board where you can share websites by categories.  You can see my board at pinterest.com/alanbweaver.  Although I’ve just started it, I am sharing some websites that I’ve found useful – from new appliances to technology to music and more.

I’ve even pinned a couple of videos to this page so that you can do it on your own.

As a chrome user for my browser, I had to add a “pin” button to my toolbar.  It’s very easy.  Whenever you’re logged in and see a website that you like, click on the “pin” button and you can type in the copy that you wish to use.

There are a number of books already written on the topic.  Go to Amazon and you can find some references.  However, practice with it makes it easy.  You can also follow other Pinterest people and you can have followers.

If you have a business, you can also use it to build interest among your clients.  Although designed for crafters, this site is useful in many different ways.  After you’ve been online for a few weeks, you can share it on your website or other social media platforms.  This will show how you’re keeping with current technology.
