Pinterest is a web and mobile application company that offers a visual discovery, collection, sharing, and storage tool. Users create and share the collections of visual bookmarks (boards). Boards are created through a user selecting an item, page, website, etc. and pinning it to an existing or newly created board. Users save and share pins from multiple resources onto boards based on a plethora of criteria, e.g., similar characteristics, a theme, birthday parties, planning a vacation, writing a book, interior decorating, holidays. Boards can develop projects, organize events, or save pictures and data together. This group had a really fun sociapinterest-accountl media outlet even though I must admit I was never interested in Pinterest I am now!

I love that it’s so visual and free! you can bookmark anything like projects, adventure, dishes pretty much any idea that seems interesting. This video is a bit long but it was helpful to me because like I said I didn’t know the first thing about using this medium.

The Wall street Journal took advantage of this social media outlet and used it as marketing by ‘live pinning’ fashion week. So it’s followers could keep up constantly and of course pin it to their boards. Another way other businesses can use Pinterest is by giving life to old content! revamp up some old post and do it different. reinventing will keep your followers coming back.

Try to avoid nudity, bad posts, things that have no content value! Pinterest is of course visual so keeping it nice and neat but also posting creative things will keep people coming back, I really enjoyed this presentation, I gotta go create my own!
