Expresssions on Pinterest by Zuckerberg, Stewart, Seacrest and Deen
What do Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg, Homemaking Icon Martha Stewart, Celebrity Chef Paula Deen and Entertainment Hollywood Hotshot Ryan Seacrest have in common? They and many other celebrities, entrepreneurs, politicians and everyday people alike are actively using images on social media to express themselves. Whether it is used to share personal projects, recipes, design ideas, inspirational thoughts or a wide array of interests, Pinterest is providing proof that one picture may now worth more thousands of words.
What is this social media site? Pinterest is a pinboard-style social photo sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, hobbies, and more. Users can browse other pinboards for inspiration, ‘re-pin’ images to their own collections and/or ‘like’ photos. Pinterest’s mission is to “connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting” by way of a global platform of inspiration and idea sharing.
