UsedBlog hearts Pinterest!

Have you heard of Pinterest? If you answered “yes”, then let’s follow each other. Forever. If you haven’t, then let me explain (and then let’s follow each other. Forever.) Actually, I’ll let TechCrunch explain with all it’s linky wisdom:

The current toast of the web is Pinterest, the visual pinboard for collecting and sharing content online. The “pinning” phenomena is spreading from its modest beginnings to appearing in national media outlets. There are over 2.5m monthly active Pinterest users on Facebook. A co-founder of the site has over 500,000 followers on Pinterest. Ron Conway (an investor in the site) remarked that Pinterest’s user growth rate is what Facebook’s was five years ago. Earlier in 2011, it was valued through venture financing at $40m and, most recently, just a few months later, at around $200m.

Okay, so that’s pretty great, right? It’s also seriously addictive. Since I created pin boards for UsedBlog, I can’t stop pinning. Stuffed Alf doll on UsedVictoria? Pinned! Vintage turntable from UsedCalgary? That’s right! Pinned! It’s fun and allows you to curate content quickly & easily. It’s amazing how interesting photos uploaded to the UsedEverywhere sites look like art when they’re grouped together.

It’s also really cool to see how other people are using Pinterest. From home renos (real & imagined) to dream vacations and everything in between – people aren’t just sharing content. They’re sharing who they are and who they want to be. It’s a truly amazing community and we’re just happy to be a part of it. But don’t take my word for it! Check out the UsedEverywhere Pinterest boards and see for yourself. Happy pinning!
