Jan 2012 Pin Repin Board Key Terms: Note: Pinterest Isn't Only For Girls! The History of Pinterest: How It Is Used/ Useful: Ben Silbermann As a child, Ben loved to collect things. It was his passion.
Everything from stamps to insects In his mind, what a person collects says a lot about who they are, deep down inside. He even referred to his wife's closet as a collection of shoes and clothes. Ben admitted he sees the world as a series of people's collections. Worked at Google prior to developing Pinterest "Google had the audacity to think at a really big scale," said Silbermann.
"Like, nobody does that! It was inspiring" Evan Sharp, Ben Silbermann, and Paul Sciatta
co-founded Pinterest. Development began in December 2009
and a closed beta version launched in March 2010 Silbermann personally contacted the first 5,000 users. He has given many of them his cell phone number and continues to communicate with them. Slowly Successful When asked why he didn't give up during the tough first year, Silbermann said, "The idea of telling everyone we blew it was so embarrassing. I thought, 'Google is never going to take me back -- they barely hired me the first time!'" Pinterest took a while to catch on. Good thing he stuck with it... Aug 2011 - Time Magazine listed Pinterest in its "50 Best Websites or 2011"
2012 Webby Awards- Pinterest won Best Social Media App and People's Voice Award for best functioning visual design Referral traffic is used to describe visitors to your site that come from direct links on other websites rather than directly or from search engines. "boys are visual by nature" Well, Pinterest has pictures.
Lots of them.
In fact, that's all Pinterest is. "Pinterest could quite possibly provide the easiest, most effective method for helping you make that dude from The Notebook look like a cold-hearted jerk." Women on Pinterest often use very direct phrases such as "I love this" or "I need this." They can even organize their pins into categories, often conveniently named "recipes I must try," "clothes I want," or "stuff I wish my boyfriend would buy me." The idea here is that if you have a girlfriend/wife/love interest with a pinterest, figuring out the perfect gift or meal to make has become a whole lot easier! Here's that thing you've wanted for months, babydoll! Omg, you do pay attention when I tell you things! (Saw it on her Pinterest) If you click it If you
