Need a new hook? Try Pinterest

Are you having some Facebook and Twitter fatigue?  Take some time away and get hooked to something new at Pinterest. Trying to explain Pinterest is difficult because they are so many things.

First off they are a sort of social media site. You can either follow people or be followed. If your Facebook friends have an account you can integrate it so you can see who your friends are following or see the articles they like.  One great thing about this is the feedback you can get on an idea.

Next they are a type of  image hosting service. You upload articles with pictures that can either be uploaded to Pinterest or linked from another site. Some of the image galleries I have opened up are really good with lots of content and great quality.

You will really have to check Pinterest out for yourself to get a good understating of what they are. You will not be disappointed with all of the content they have to offer. For me it sure beats a lot of content I find around the web. There are a couple of inconveniences but nothing major.

Lag can be a little bit of an issue at times. Traffic seems to be the and have noticed it at peak times. Second you will have to wait about a week after you sign up for an account to be able to see all of the content. However I am telling you right now totally worth the wait.
