Pinterest in just good plain fun. You pin your interests on bulletin boards you create. It must be like an electronic scrap board activity. Check it out and follow me on Pinterest.com/goldenresults. My favorite board on my site is called Golden Results.
How many people had a bulletin board in their bedroom as a teenager? My bulletin board was an ugly dime store cork frame filled with thumbtacks of all my favorite pictures, celebrities, artwork, dried up dance corsages, spirit ribbons, school buttons etc.
Well now there is a new virtual website called Pinterest that follows this same bulletin board principle. Pinterest seems to be the hot new website everyone is talking about. If you have not heard about Pinterest, its a website where you can search topics and "pin" the photos you like to your bulletin board you create. Just like the social media world of Twitter and Facebook, Pinterest can become highly addictive! To join you have to be invited by someone. Once you do join you can search for others you know similar to format of other social media sites. I am just getting used to the Facebook Timeline and entering the world of Google + and now here comes Pinterest!!!
