>> Hi!
>> I attended an hour webinar highlighting the use of Pinterest for
>> businesses - B2C, B2B and also personal.  I learned that in less than a
>> year, this social media format has surpassed youtube, google+, linkedin -
>> and is now number 3 in usage under facebook and twitter (not sure which one
>> of the latter is first).
>> Terminology - PINS are images that you post on your BOARDS - like you
>> would post picture cards on an office bulletin board.  The thing is that
>> pins can be linked to a landing page, folks can 'REPIN' your pin (with its
>> image and links) to their own Boards.  They can 'like', 'comment', REPIN.
>> I can imagine ways that this could be used - for instance a separate
>> BOARD for Writer,Draw, etc.  Each board could have its own tutorial 'pin'
>> with a link to the respective landing page.  Their could be a board for the
>> history, another for people behind the scenes, the imagination can go on -
>> the webinar suggested using up to 32 boards, but you can have more. Each
>> board displays 5 pins. Look at General Electrics site (
>> notice how the images on their boards
>> entice people to look around and create a bold statement (especially the
>> first board). Another idea would be to reward those that contribute to
>> openoffice by placing a 'I helped too' kind of board, people could repin
>> their award on their own boards and their friends could see what they have
>> been up to.
>> Because this is increasing in popularity, and a great way to spread
>> branding, I suggest reserving the openoffice username even if no one plans
>> to use Pinterest yet.  Starbucks ( reserved
>> their name, but does not use it yet.
>> I have just signed up to use pinterest, and have not added anything to my
>> boards yet. I do not know the way to get analytics yet, still reading about
>> it, but the webinar mentioned this is available, as well as tracking
>> keywords that are working for the competitors. So far it is by invitation
>> from another pinterest user to set up an account.
>> By the way, check out /microsoft - everyone is starting out, it seems.
