By Carmel DeAmicis On August 22, 2013When you’re a reporter covering a startup that hasn’t been written about yet you feel a bit like you’re taking away its media virginity. The founders are so fresh-faced, bright-eyed and innocent. That’s…
Are you on Pinterest yet? I remember when I first heard of the site some time last year. At that time, I was working on a project that required dealing a lot with images of delectable food. When my boss explained the concept of Pinterest, I was not overly excited, but I did sign up. Sad to say, I didn’t – and don’t – really spend a lot of time on there. One thing is for sure, though: whenever I log in to my account, time does tend to pass by because of those eye-catching images you see everywhere!
So Pinterest is the hottest thing in the online scene it seems. People have been dubbing it the hottest web site in 2012. Others have been calling it the hangout for women who love to look at shoes and clothes and hairstyles. There are men who do spend time on Pinterest looking and pinning at I don’t know what. Some people extol its usefulness. Others say it will die a quick death.
By now, you probably have seen Pinterest one time too many to ignore it. This relatively new web site is making waves, and huge waves they are! I wouldn’t be surprised if you already have an account and are using it on a regular basis.
I started using Pinterest personally some time last year when a friend mentioned it to me, but I have not been that active. As I have said before, I can barely keep up with all my social networking accounts! With all the attention that Pinterest is receiving, though, one simply cannot set it aside.
