President Obama Joined Pinterest!
President Obama’s got his own Pinterest board, think he’s gonna stay up late pinning?
Pinterest is the fastest growing social network on the web. And why not? Members create photo albums or boards based on interests. Tons of women are planning fantasy weddings, fantasty shopping and generally having a good time playing with photos. So who’s the newest pinner? President Barack Obama! One wonders if he’s going to be like a ton of Pinners out there–staying up until the wee hours looking for photos of puppies in teacups?
Actually the board is run by Obama’s 2012 campaign staff. According to the Washington Post, there are 8 sub-boards, some of which features recipes, pets and family members. Other sub-boards are devoted to infographics, issues and initiatives.
Once the photos are pinned, they can be re-pinned by anyone on Pinterest. This morning the President has 4447 followers. At present, his cupcake photo has 6 likes and 10 repins.
Photos of cupcakes are a very lo-cal treat.
