Bunker Project Episode 78:
To Pinterest or not to Pinterest?
Andrew and Bob open up the show with an intro explaining how the second show of the Meetup is always a little crazier than the first. Social Media Platforms for 2012 is the main topic of the show with Pinterest being the hot new thing.
Pinterest has taken off and Andrew explains that he understands the hype now that he started using it.

We get into Pinterest:
- Dominated by women in North America and by men in the UK
- Not a lot of communication between pinners
- Can communicate through comments and can like or repin someones pin
- Pinterest is already making money – via skimlinks.com
- Various ideas about how to use Pinterest for business
- Hosting contests on Pinterest
- Add Pin It button on your website
Jason makes a comment about not being too concerned about people stealing his work online. He says just assume people will and don’t think of it as stealing. For his photography business he only puts low quality images online so there isn’t much that can be done with the images anyway… If they want the high quality image they have to buy it.
