I was celebrating my grandmother’s 95th birthday party yesterday, and one of my cousins brought up Pinterest. I had no clue what is was so I’m checking it out now with you. In essence, Pinterest allows you to save your favorite stuff on a web page. Unlike Internet Explorer and Firefox favorites, you can place pictures, notes, and to-do stuff. It can help you plan events, projects, renovations, and recipes.
What’s nice is you can lay out pictures from different website or emails, and descriptions, so you can easily manage your product. I can see myself placing different pictures of tech support products one one page with pricing and designs to be able to easily decide which to go with. This is much easier that toggling back and forth with your website favorites.
Pinterest goes a step above by allowing you to share your collections with others, whether it be favorite books, toys, and games. Then, the social connection starts by connecting you to others with the same tastes. That’s a pretty cool idea. You don’t know who the other person is, but you can swap ideas since you both like the same stuff.
It’s an easy tech setup. Just sign up for an invite and watch out for the sign-up link in your email. Then, starting pinning up your all the things you’re interested in. It’s definitely one of those sites to keep in your technology support tool chest when needed.
