Everybody’s talking about Pinterest, the hot new social media platform that’s up and coming, even non-social media geeks. It’s the fastest growing social network EVER apparently (yeah Facebook, that was aimed at you), though it almost seems to have grown out of the very PR that it was hoping to generate.
What came first here, the proverbial social media egg, or the chicken that is chirping out the clever PR campaigns? Or maybe it was marketed effectively to a well-targeted and curated audience - I certainly wasn’t in this demographic, and now I question if I want to be, because frankly, who needs yet another social media distraction? Women drool over pictures of glossy high-res highly edited photos, and since I am not immune to this despite my hardest efforts, I think I’ll stay on the sidelines and watch my engaged friends and material goods-addicted female friends invest time into this one. Long live my love-hate relationship with the art of advertising.
