BOTTOMLINE: Pinterest, thanks for the wakeup call. People like sharing photos and Facebook is too cumbersome to do that simply. I don't want everyone IN my Face-book. Follow my PINS sure. // What's next for Pinterest? Unknown. // What's next for NEXT-PIN sites? Sky's the limit.
Pinterest is interesting to watch. I am participating to see if there will eventually be any "value" in the PIN or the Pin Board of great content. Today, if you are working with a limited budget of time or money I would say Pinterest is of most interest when you are in Women's retail. Everyone is is PINNING away like made, and nobody is actually going to the site that was PINNED.
Pinterest has a few problems that you should know about as well. You might think that Pinterest is the greatest thing since Facebook. It's not. It's good. It's fun. It is continuing to capture the hearts and minds of consumers and social media pundits alike.
Simply put, the user would like to continue down the path of the pinboard and not have to return to the masterboard over and over. It is our hope that Pinterest will consider our solution. And of course we are going to make a Pinboard of it.
It is not how YOU want to index and recall the information that is important, it is how I want to do it. We no longer browse websites, travelling down some architected sitemap and taxonomy towards the goal. NOPE. Google is our index, and search is our rapid retrieval and navigation system. Except Google isn't all that good at remembering or organizing our stuff.
