Here at Hammacher Schlemmer, we’ve begun to post photos on our own Pinterest boards, and we’ll be telling you about the new boards we’ve created here on the blog. Are you just getting started on Pinterest? Ask us to follow you! We’d love to see what kinds of things you’re posting on your boards. Have a suggestion for something you’d like to see us “pin”? Let us know about it! Pinterest is all about following others, interacting with each other, and seeing what everyone else finds “cool and interesting.”
If you are unfamiliar with that name, Pinterest is sort of like a community bulletin board. You can create “boards” according to the theme of your choice (Pinterest has already selected a few ideas for you, if you choose to use them), and then you “pin” pictures to your boards. You can choose your own photos, or you can “re-pin” photos you like from the boards of others onto your own boards. See something great online? Capture the image, and pin it to your board! It’s a fun way to share images you like (yes, you can even hit the “Like” button on others’ pictures) and also a great way to discover products, photos, even recipes, that you might not see otherwise.
