There’s a new social media phenomenon going on that’s taking the internet by storm. Pinterest is the new social way to share pictures and the things you love. It’s not like Instagram where it’s just one main feed of people you are following showing pictures they post. With Pinterest you have a profile that showcases the pictures you love in albums organized in categories that you create.
The secret to the success of Pinterest is how easy it is to sign up and how user friendly the experience is. You can follow people based off their interests and other categories. It’s a simple and fun way to share images from the web. There’s no distraction from news feeds or advertisements.
Pinterest is going to be the hottest craze in 2012. With over 11 million signed up, Pinterest is taking off fast and doesn’t look to slow down. Pinterest offers a “pin it” button that you add to the browser’s bookmark bar and use it on any website. All the photos that are on Pinterest give credit to the original source of that image along with a link back to the site whey were “pinned” from.
Is this going to be another social media site that businesses need to utilize?
Any type business should get on Pinterest and add it to their social media marketing. Its another great way to engage with current customers and connect with new potential ones. Create different types of albums that show the companies culture, inspirations, and stuff they love.
