Have you discovered this new social site? I just have and am having so much fun with it. It’s a bit like a scrapbook or mood- board for all the things you like and want to display (then possibly pass on) for everyone’s enjoyment. I have only just started but have decided it could become addictive so am limiting myself to only a handful of boards. Needless to say most are for bariatrics – food, basics, recipes etc but a few fashion and gardening likes too, non-bariatric-related – but my passions and hobbies.
My pinterest is here and I hope you will check out my boards and re-pin if you like.
We have also added the pin-it facility to all the blogs on our website (via the pin it button) so feel free to add them to your own boards, account or recommendations. This is new for us – we feel it’s time to share further and take bariatrics or wls into the mainstream.
Here are some of our most popular pins to date (it’s early days so you could make a difference).
And here is some basic information about Pinterest from Wikipedia:
Pinterest is a free website. Users can upload, save, sort, and manage images—known as pins—and other media content (e.g., videos and images) through collections known as pinboards. Pinterest acts as a personalized media platform. Users can browse the content of others on the main page. Users can then save individual pins to one of their own boards using the “Pin It” button, with Pinboards typically organized by a central topic or theme. Users can personalize their experience with Pinterest by pinning items, creating boards, and interacting with other members. By doing so, the users “pin feed” displays unique, personalized results Pinboards can be used by educators to plan lessons. Teachers can pin sites for later referral. Students can pin and organize sources and collaborate on projects. So great for Support group Leaders and Forum Moderators etc. Pinterest does not generate its own content; rather, it draws from many resources around the web and compiles them in one convenient location for users. By transferring information from restricted access to a more open public sphere, information transaction costs have decreased drastically.
