Mosaic Monday – Pinterest
The new craze! Pinterest is taking social networks by storm. To date it’s the 3rd largest social site according to Experian Hitwise. The report state, what is somewhat a “no brainer”…woman are the obsessed! If you’ve been in the woods or just emerged from a hermit lifestyle, here is a quick summary:
“Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.” -Pinterest
I’ve joined the cult to see what the fuss is about. I can definitely see the allur, especially for woman! We are emotional beings and the “pins” are filled with fun, purpose and feeling. Not to mention all the elements in our lives that have meaning. Fashion, family, passions and food! It’s been a lot of fun…sharing and connecting. I’ve yet to see the great value for business. Unless you are, hard core, marketing to woman! I am only putting my toes in the water of this new social media giant. I don’t like the fact that there is no Free app for my iPad…
