I’ve been using Pinterest for almost half a year now, but if you haven’t had an invite you will probably never have heard of it. So let me explain. Pinterest is a social catalog service to pin interesting things. To pin these interesting things, you need 1) an acount on Pinterest and 2) something interesting to pin. The first one isn’t that hard. If you didn’t got an invite from a friend, you can also request one. Or if you want, I can sent you an invite if you give me your email adress.

Once you’ve been invited, you can choose to log in with your Facebook page or Twitter account. If you don’t have one of these, well, then you’re screwed. Cause I don’t think there’s another way to log in at the first time. Only next time you can also log in using a password. But hey, I don’t think that should be a problem, is it?

So after you logged in you have your own pinterest and can start creating boards. In the beginning you have some standard boards already, like ‘For the Home’, ‘Products I Love’ and ‘Books Worth Reading. You can delete these if you don’t like them, or just change their titles. I’ve changed mine for instance to ‘Home Sweet Home‘, deleted the rest and made some new ones like ‘Online Shops‘, ‘Desirable Dresses‘ and ‘Cool Cameras‘.

For what I’ve seen so far, most of the boards on people’s Pinterest are about food, clothes, places and all kinds of products. But you can pin whatever you want! I’ve made for instance also a Pinterest for eLBee Communications, where I can pin interesting ads and some great ambient campaigns. I thought about making one for interesting articles as well, but there are too many articles about (digital) marketing & communication that I like, plus they don’t all have pictures in them. And the only thing you can pin are pictures.

But as you can see (or better, read), the possibilities are endless. It’s a great way to get inspiration for decorating your home, buying new clothes, making new dishes … But the best thing I like about it is that you can make your own wishlist throughout the year, so when it’s Christmas or your birthday you would know what to ask for as a present. Or even better, if friends of yours have a Pinterest and a wishlist board as well, you would know better what to buy for them. It’s a win-win situation ;)

So start today and by the time it’s Christmas again, you will probably have a board full of great gift ideas! What are you waiting for?

    a whole lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.

    You really make it appear so easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be actually one thing which I feel I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m having a look ahead on your subsequent post, I’ll attempt to get the hold of it!
