Pinterest is a very interesting site. I like the exclusivity of the site being that you have to request to join the site and can’t immediatly sign up. I am a frequent user of the site. I like the concept of being able to “pin” anything from the web and adding it to your own board.
I also enjoy the categories you can place the boards in. This helps organize the site to easily search and find items for your boards.I would recommend this to a client, particularly companies in the fashion industry. This site is swarming with new fashion items for women and men. Companies can also link websites where you can purchase these items into the pictures. This is a great way to increase your reach and promote your brand. I can see this happening in the future as the site begins to develop more.I am not sure of any companies who are using Pinterest now at the moment, being that Pinterest is a relatively new hit. But in the future, I see many companies utilizing Pinterest in terms of online advertising and promotional campaigns just like Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.
Pinterest is here to stay.
