a small experiment in linking peers + postings
At the moment, the perception of Pinterest is that it has a great collection of brides’ dreams, cooks’ recipes and interior designers’ ideas. While there is truth in that statement, per the number three social networking site, a closer look reveals creative uses by creative types to catalog ideas to spark their imagination. Take for example artist/designer Marian Wachter’s Pinterest boards; she only has one recipe pinned but a total of 30 boards where she captures visual motivation around everything from typography to user interfaces to branding examples.
While retail businesses have found great success with click-through rates for their products, there’s also a growing subset of users who are finding ways to catalog their inspirations one pin at a time.
