Pinterest have been making some noise in the social media space and I’ve seen some of my FB friends using Pinterest; sharing or should I say pinning different media that they want to share to their FB Friends. I already sent my invite request and just like when I created an account on Facebook, I was not really excited in creating and maintaining another social media account, since I was actively using my Friendster account back then but it’s different now.
I have a G+, Facebook and a Twitter account, on a normal day, I would actively post, share and comment on different posts and picture and on not so normal day I’ll just stare at the feeds and hoping someone will share something really.. really.. really.. interesting.
While on Pinterest, it’s totally different; instead of STATUS or Tweets you’ll use a pinboard-styled feeds and that’s where you share the media that you pinned, it’s like an online cork-board where you pin the different photos, clippings and pages of books that you want to keep, only it’s digital. At this time Pinterest is by invites only but you can request an invite from Pinterest.com or from its iOS Apps.
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.
If you really want to know what Pinterest is all about, here’s a infographic that was posted on TechCrunch and it basically explained everything you need to know about the fast growing social media site.
