As social media continues to evolve, so do the tools. Stepping up to the plate with a fierce vengeance is the new social media darling Pinterest. Haven't heard of it? Let me give you a quick description before we dive into the "why" behind using Pinterest within your business.
What Is Pinterest
Pinterest is a simple way to capture and save any picture you find on the web. Now before you think it's just another version of Facebook, let me explain. Pinterest is at its core a visual experience. It takes magazine clipping online by offering a way to explore the web, consolidate your favorites and then share your eye-catching photos with your network of followers.
While Facebook has a wall, Pinterest has "boards" that are nothing more than buckets of similar content. For example, you might create a board titled, "Kitchen and Bath Designs" and then add content by pinning (capturing) pictures of kitchens or bathrooms that you find attractive. As you pin items onto your boards, anyone following you is able to see that pin and either "like" it (sound familiar?), comment on it or re-pin it onto their own board.
Being used to capture pictures and articles on everything from planning a wedding to your next vacation, Pinterest has an endless amount of uses!
