I’ve been hearing the buzz about the online pinboard Pinterest for a while now and have taken a couple of spins through the site to get a feel for this new social network. It’s still invitation-only, but has been growing faster even than Facebook and Twitter in their heydays.
Yesterday’s announcement that it’s now available through Facebook will make it even easier for early adopters to jump on board.
What does this have to do with special events? Well, more than anything, events are visual treasure troves of imagery—and Pinterest is all about images. Food, décor, fashion, gatherings, art, lighting…they’re all being pinned on Pinterest just waiting for you to discover them.
One of our favorite bloggers, Lara McCullough-Carter (also known as ready2Spark) has published one of the best blogs I’ve seen on Pinterest, and she offers up some very resourceful ideas for how meeting and event planners can make the network work for them and their business. Check it out here, and get pinning!
