Is Pinterest the new Christmas List? December 11, 2012
By Jasmine Johnson
As an avid and possibly addicted pinner, the first thing I did after Thanksgiving was start compiling my Christmas list and gift ideas on Pinterest. The visual bookmarking site seems to be the easiest place to organize everything I want and where to get it all in one place for myself, and hopefully others, to see and keep track of.
I’m not the only one subscribing to this thought process for my 2012 Christmas list, many of my friends and family are also subtly (or not so subtly) pinning their wish lists too. And, with the iPhone app, I can take everyone’s pin boards with me and refer to them while I shop, ensuring I select the perfect gifts.
It gets even better – did you know you can easily email your Pinterest boards to non-users (like maybe your grandmother)? It’s a win-win for me, and about a million other users doing the same thing.
I, for one, am very excited about more businesses getting on Pinterest and using it to engage customers. The more pins I can waste hours of my day scrolling through, the better.
