Storing every day things online isn’t new phenomenon, but taking said things and arranging them on a virtual pinboard is. Latest social network Pinterest has gained quite the amount of popularity, generating millions of users with its exclusive, invite-only platform. VIBE Vixen caught wind of the photo-sharing system a few months back and have watched the madness ensue.
You can liken things like “pinning” and “repining” pictures amongst friends and followers to Twitter’s “tweeting” and “retweeting,” as well as Tumblr’s “blogging” and “reblogging.” But if you take a deeper look at this new DIY-based forum, it’s focused more in organization and sharing then its social cousins. Don’t get what we mean? Here are four reasons why you should request an invite to Pinterest today!
Learning New Interests
Pinterest is filled with DIYs and How-To’s that can have you baking the world’s most delicious cookies and self-designing the latest nail trends. Standing apart from other networks the new social network allows you to learn useful, everyday things, like gardening, homemaking, wedding planning, etc. Plus, style and beauty are intertwined. Finding out the latest beauty product or clothing trend if effortless.
Visual, Virtual Organization
Are you super neat and organized? Well Pinterest is perfect for you. By allowing you to collect, sort and name “interests,” it caters to those who need to restore order to their likes. Tumblr, Twitter and Instgram are more for the random-minded.
Expanding Your Network
Although meeting new people isn’t the exact goal of Pinterest, it’s inevitable. If you’re branding yourself, joining the network can help you meet and build business relationships with others.
There’s An App For That
iPhone has an application for it, making it easier to share and organize. Slide it right next to your other social squares and the rest is pin-story. And if that’s not enough persuasion for you, we don’t know what is!
