Hi my name is Maureen and I am a Pinterest addict.
Are you on Pinterest?
No? That’s OK.
I like Pinterest. No, Pinterest does not take a lot of time.
Or should not take a lot of time.
Pinterest is book marking.
Yes, you are Pinteresting?
If I may ask, are you addicted? Do you think Pinterest is the next big thing? What do they say, something like
“if Stumble Upon and Flickr had a baby it would be Pinterest?”
“if Stumble Upon and Picasa had a baby it would be Pinterest?”
“if Stumble Upon and Photobucket (?) had a baby it would be Pinterest?”
I think someone shared that very message in a graphic form and I “Re-Pinned” it. I probably pinned it on my “funny” Board on Pinterest.
I never did Farmville, or Mafia Wars on Facebook. I don’t play Angry Birds, Words with Friends or any game on my cell phone… or computer. I never have. I like games. I like board games. Bananagrams, Trivial Pursuit, I used to love Monopoly.
I remember when I was addicted to… hmmm the name escapes me. A game about “Klout” but it is not Klout…. Most of the big winners there seem to be gaming the system… what is that site? I had to limit myself to looking at it once a day, when I was addicted to it. Now I go weeks at a time without revisiting that site. The name will come to me. It took more time than Pinterest (it is nothing like Pinterest) you bought and sold people. It is a stock market kind of game. You get value based on interaction on Facebook, Twitter, etc. You got some value from blogging but not enough. The name will come to me yet.
I made the mistake of talking about Pinterest on a real estate network and got jumped by an SEO (search engine optimization ) EXPERT who I guess is also a social media expert. Somehow it took some of the fun of Pinterest out of it for me. The expert said Pinterest is the same as Facebook. Really?
Pinterest’s TOS says it is not for business but I have included images from my real estate sites. Gaming? Photos of Columbus, Worthington, etc.
That other site I was addicted to a few months ago was Empire Avenue….
