I’ve finally got started on using Pinterest. For those that haven’t looked at this before Pinterest is essentially an image bookmarking site. Find an image that you like online, pin it to a “board”, use the boards to organise the pins. So I’ve set up a board for ideas about how to redecorate my house (this seems to be a Pinterest requirements), a board for iCeGS pictures and another board for careersy images. There is also a social element to the site which allows you to follow other people who are also using Pinterest and see what they are pinning.
I’m just playing at the moment, but I think that I can see the point of it. Being able to work with visual images and collect together bookmarks whilst you are brainstorming helps you to get an overview of things that you’ve been working on. I can see myself using this as a way to prepare for presentations etc.
Does anyone else use it? If so, can you explain what you use it for?
