Organization of visual content
“Especially when you compare it to emailing pictures. Email is so hard to find things. I’d go to look for an example of an ad someone sent me in my email and it was lost. I’d think, ‘Okay, where the heck is this picture.’
Pinterest was a lot more organized
(Samantha, F, 21)
“I did look at things on there.
I watched the videos and looked at design templates and stuff.
I didn’t necessarily participate, but I still used it. I definitely think it was better than posting stuff on Blackboard or something.” (John, M, 22)
I was shown some cool ideas
for last semester with the Brand You project for like resume ideas and cover letter ideas. I definitely used it more for the project last semester.” (Rick, M, 22)
“I liked it because, well, obviously, I’m used to Pinterest, and you can go back and
look at things that we’ve talked about in the past or that other people have seen and it kind of sparks an idea
." (Jamie, F, 22)
“I honestly did not use it once. I just didn’t know how to work it. I mean,
obviously the girls know how to work it.
I would see something and think, ‘I want to put that on Pinterest’ but then I’d think, ‘Wait, I don’t know how to do that.’” (John, M, 22)
I think if everyone is posting things, it can easily run away
and kind of get too overwhelming. I liked the fact that last semester you had your own board. I could go on there quickly and see different ideas and get good input quickly and kind of move on.” (Jacob, M, 22)
