Of course you do. We all do from time to time!
So if you haven’t heard of Pinterest yet, you will in the next couple of months.
It’s one of the fastest growing social networking sites out there and I believe there is so much untapped potential for the natural hair community.
When I first heard of it I thought “Oh boy… not another social networking site.”
As an online marketer, I spend enough time managing my website Facebook and Twitter accounts, so I sure don’t need anything else to keep up with.
Nevertheless, I created a Pinterest account a few days ago, and was pleasantly surprised at how useful it can be — especially for finding new hairstyles and sharing them with others.
I’m only following a few people and I’m already itchin’ to try some new styles.
How It Works
Pinterest lets you organize, share and comment on pictures that you find around the Web. Simply install their app and you’re ready to go!
Any time you stumble upon a picture you like online, simply hit “Pin it” on your browser (or phone app) and the picture is instantly shared. Organize your pictures into different “boards” — that way people can select which of your boards they want to follow.
For example, I created a board called “Fly Natural Hairstyles.” Now, anyone can follow that board and be notified when I “Pin” a new photo. They can also “Like”, Re-pin the photo to their board or comment on it.
So as you can see, Pinterest adopted elements of both Twitter and Facebook.
