Pinterest wedding

I heard about Pinterest at a wedding reception last year and within 24 hours, I was hooked. I had to pin everything: I grabbed every vegan recipe, organizing tip, cute outfit, inspirational quote, and makeup tutorial I could get my freshly ombre-manicured fingers on. Then, a few months later, I got engaged and suddenly it was time to add a new board.

As a proud member of the one percent of Pinterest users who didn’t already have a Dream Wedding board, I started a For Real Wedding board and began to explore the site’s “Weddings and Events” category. Within five minutes, it became apparent to me that I would need to locate a rustic barn surrounded by an endless field of wildflowers. According to Pinterest, that seems to be the only place people are getting married these days. Keep reading »

I use Pinterest as a visual wishlist of the products I’d love to buy if I had a little extra cash–everything from shoes to clothes to makeup to home decor–and I’ve bought a number of products after seeing them pop up on my Pinterest homepage. This is why I’m both intrigued and excited about a new program called Shopinterest that allows you to turn a Pinterest board into an online store. Here’s how it works…

Our favorite new Internet timewaster, Pinterest has in recent weeks become a haven for online pro-anorexia and eating disorder communities. Drawn to the site’s image-heavy, community-oriented style, thinsporation posters have recently flooded the site, posting pictures of jutting hips, emaciated models and concave bellies, emblazoned with pro-ana slogans like “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” And, most importantly, Pinterest posters can post anonymously, meaning that users can reach out to one another but still feel safe.

But all of that is about to change.

Pinterest Is Making Money In A Slightly Shady Way

I’ve recently developed a fairly severe addiction to Pinterest, as has pretty much everyone else I know (related: do you follow The Frisky’s boards? You totally should!). Pinterest allows users to “pin” pictures of things they find on the internet to themed boards and share with friends: in effect it gives people a way to organize all the fun stuff they find online, and it’s a pretty amazing resource for style inspiration, home design, recipes, and random memes. It’s easy to see why Pinterest recently became the fastest growing site ever, surpassing 10 million visitors in the last month alone, and did we mention it’s only existed since May 2011? And it’s actually still in beta? Yeah. Pinterest is obviously a force to be reckoned with.

But now some interesting questions are surfacing about the way Pinterest has been making money… Keep reading »
