Pinterest

I've been sucked into Pinterest.  It's kind of like this:


Mostly I've been using it to collect home decorating ideas, but now my feed is turning into a more feminine version of Reddit.  Not that there's anything wrong with that. 


 I don't imagine Pinterest will hold my interest for too long.  It kind of reminds me of when I got into Polyvore, which didn't last too long either.  (see: Outfits based on album covers)

Maybe it's just because I'm male, but I still can't figure out what pinterest is for. I've seen them describe it as a pinboard, and you just called it a tackboard....and I don't know what either one of those words mean, either.

It's a way to organize pictures of things from the internet into a tumblr. And you can have separate tumblrs for different themes. Like "OMG SHOEZ" and "hot boyzzz" and then you can see everyone else's pictures in a feed form.

In the olden days, girls would cut pictures of things out of magazines and tape them on their wall. It's kind of like that.
