Pinterest is basically an online pinboard where you can "pin" pictures of things you like. These can be pretty much anything but obviously I really like it for all the crafts stuff!These "pins" can then be shared with other people and "repinned" or "liked" or commented on. It is such a simple idea, but seems to work. Not only is it the basis for another online community but it's another way of getting your stuff seen because every "pin" is linked back to the original post or website that it came from.
You can have boards for different things as well, so for instance my boards are:
My Blog Stuff
(I know they aren't the most imaginative titles but they get the point across.)
I quite like this idea, it's a new slant on the social media idea, with interests at the core rather than games or statuses. I think it works quite well particularly for the crafter community because it is a new way of sharing all our homemade goodies. But I will admit that I was rather unconvinced to start with. What do you guys think? Do you like it, or do you think that there are too many forms of this kind of thing out there?
