MIS300: Pinterest

I love Pinterest!

Pinterest is one of my favorite websites.  It can be described as the “world catalog of ideas”.  Create a virtual board for each idea you have, type your idea in the search engine, and “pin” ideas to corresponding boards to come back to reference when your’re ready.  It’s the ultimate creative person’s dream.

As of November 2016, Pinterest had 150 million active users posting over 75 billion pins.  http://expandedramblings.com/index.php/pinterest-stats/  These numbers are expected to grow at an exponential rate and it’s time to join in on the fun.  It is detrimental that certain businesses join Pinterest.  For example, my sister is an event planner.  The best thing she could ever do for her business is allow her brides, or other clients, create a board that they both can make “pins” to, so they can visually collaborate ideas.  By doing this, she has created a competitive advantage.
