    Herbert,

    I have been on Pinterest for a few months now. I like it. I would like it more if I were an artist or designer of some sort. Some of the boards I see there are amazing.

    I did go to Blogher last year, came home and built a board with all the blogs of people I met. It was fun.

  12. Hello Herbert!
    This is the second time in a week I’ve been pinned by a post on Pinterest. And suddenly it seems to be popping everywhere. Time to check it out.

    As a promotion vehicle, I’d say that it would be powerful if we use it to pin our genuine passions in life and not spam it.

    Jacob,

    I can understand if you have not heard of Pinterest, I see mostly women on there. But then again, I am a women so maybe that is where I just hang out. :-)

    Despite that you should check it out. I backlink to many posts and blogs there. I heard it is great for SEO backlinking.

    Sorry Herbert, I jumped in before you. :-|

    Hi Herbert,

    I posted an article on my blog about Pinterest in November 2011. At that point it had 2.7 million monthly users. Today, just 3 months later it has 10.4 million monthly users according to the Inside Network’s AppData tracking service. Pinterest showcases your interests by images you pin and allows you to categorize them on boards. Quite frankly it is great fun! I think it is becoming the next huge social media platform. If you have not tried it, check it out.

    One of the comments on my blog was written by Kim Castleberry. She stated, “Many bloggers (not just the mommy type) are noticing that if they take really good pictures to include with their posts, that these shots are likely to get “pinned” and bring them a respectable traffic increase. All the more reason not just to USE a picture in our posts but to TAKE a really good one!”

    As for me, I have been using Pinterest as a way to design my personal vision board. Pinterest makes it fun and easy to do. You don’t have to be an artist or photographer to benefit from this social platform. I really love Pinterest!

    Hi Herbert,
    Pinterest is such a great site and so promising, It’s growth was so unexpected and right now is the fastest growing site in the history of internet.

    Every one was looking for Google plus to be the new facebook but even though it has all the recourses and exposure of Google it doesn’t as good as many were expecting.
    On the other hand, nobody knew about pinterest a few months ago and now I keep finding new posts about it everyday, it’s just amazing…

    It will be interesting to see the development of pinterest in the long run? Will it gain broad general acceptance or will it be a hangout for the visually inclined people.
