Increase Your Digital Clout Day 21/30

Pinterest

The social networking site that we are going to explore today is a unique one that is growing by leaps and bounds.  It will take a second to figure out how to best use this to expand your business and your personal clout.  This site is called Pinterest.  Http://pinterest.com
From a conceptual standpoint this is the digital version of the old digital cork board that you had in your room or office where you pinned articles, images or things that interest you.  The description is added to describe what each one of your boards contains. 
I have been a hobby artist for years and I created a board which displayed my artwork, and then collects other people’s art.  This started the sharing and people began to follow my pins and I followed theirs.  http://www.pinterest.com/dcannell/
Pinterest is a very visual social networking site and as you can see by my boards how it might be used.


This social networking site has a different flair to it and has grown into one of the more popular sites.  Maybe it is because a picture is worth a thousand words.   Caution: you can waste hours looking through all the images pertaining to your interests.
