Oh baby, is there some fun going on in the cyber-world these days! Here at StorySnoops, we may be late in jumping on the bandwagon, but we have just discovered Pinterest, and boy are we having a good time The latest phenom in the social media world is growing leaps and bounds every week, and it is exciting to get in on it.
Have you checked it out yet? If not, it is a virtual “pin board”, where you can post photos of pretty much anything you find on in the internet, and organize your pins into groups of things that interest you. Just like other social media sites, you follow people, although the difference in this case is that in addition to your friends, you can follow random people who share similar interests as well. For sure, this is a mecca for folks who are interested in fashion, design ideas, recipes and pithy quotes.
Pinterest is not really designed for businesses or bloggers per se, but both groups are definitely jumping in trying to figure out the best way to share their wares. We are excited to explore Pinterest as a way to showcase an informal presentation of our website, and add other literacy-related goodies that we don’t have an opportunity to post on the site.
We’ll be putting Pinterest buttons on our site soon, to make it easy to link back and forth or to pin pages that other people like to their own boards. But until then, log on to Pinterest and give us a look. Do you have a page yourself? Let us know so we can follow you. Happy browsing!
