If you haven’t heard of it by now, you’re probably pretty out of the loop…girls especially. Pinterest has quickly become almost every girls new social media obsession. Some genius thought up the idea to compile every great topic out there onto one website, allowing users to explore and produce their own virtual pin boards.
I was a bit behind the curve, but do in fact have a Pinterest now, and am still learning what to do with this site. Ranging from beauty and fashion tips to recipes and DIY, this site allows users to expand their knowledge of different topics and also expand the use of exploring other blogs and pages among the web. Users can categorize topics to stay organized. Pinterest has become a site where users can express themselves while being inspiring and inspired. It is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests, Friends or strangers helping you find others who enjoy the same things you do.
Pinterst has swept over the University of Oregon’s campus. Almost daily I spot a girl trying out one of the hair, makeup, or nail styles found on Pinterest. The “sock bun” has been the most popular. It amazes me how quickly things like Pinterest travels from one person to the next.
This site gives hope to even the most unartistic person that maybe you can be creative too. All you need is a little inspiration.
