Pinterest is an incredible social media platform where people are able to easily share and spread likable content. Although Pinterest currently has a vast female user-base, I believe that in 2012 this Social Media platform is going to erupt across all ages, genders, and nationalities!
With Pinterest you have the ability to Like content just like on Facebook, as well as “repin” the really cool stuff!
What “repinning” means is that you’re able to re-promote/share content that you really like. Then all those really cool things that you find and repin will be categorized into your “Pinterest Boards”. You are able to customize the category titles for all your boards, and then everyone on Pinterest can browse your boards and find even more sweet content!
This is going to be extremely lucrative for businesses because you can now promote your company, your small business, and your services through images and videos that are attractive & relevant to your user base. Then when your user based likes them, they will repin them onto their own boards which will then share that content — essentially share your business — with their entire following group as well as anyone on Pinterest that is interested in your business category!
If you haven’t created your own Pinterest account or you haven’t really explored into the capabilities of this new Social Media platform, I urge you to get started. WHY? Because by 2013 Pinterest is going to expand to become as powerful and widely used as Tumblr, Twitter, Google+, and possibly even Facebook!
Do you agree or disagree? Why?
In what ways do you see Pinterest changing the Social Media landscape?
