Why Is Pinterest So Addictive?

Why is Pinterest So Addictive?

Nearly anyone who uses Pinterest comes to one conclusion: the newest social network is addictive. What starts out as a way to collect a few tidbits here and there online can quickly turn into hours spent on the popular website looking at what other people have pinned. So what’s the allure? Why is this website so addictive?

Finding Your Happy Place and Sharing Your Ideal Self

Pinterest is a unique social network. Gone are the awkward relationship status changes, check-ins at restaurants, or pictures of kids. Pinterest boards are like personal happiness collages. They represent things that the pinner appreciates, that they desire, and that expresses who they are.

While it seems Pinterest is more private without the status updates that Facebook and Twitter offer, Pinterest frees people to be more public about who they really are and who they want to be.  The key is the fact it reveals the more ideal self, what the user is trying to be, where their hopes and dreams lie. When you follow someone and watch what they are pinning and see a glimpse of what they want out of life, you might see a nugget of yourself or just learn more about that person. It’s a gratifying experience and a unique connection that other social networks don’t offer.

Simple and Artistic

Whether we like to admit it or not, we like things that are attractive. How each photo is displayed on Pinterest, down to the size it is, is pleasing to the eyes. They are also simple. Without words distracting all over the page, it’s clean and simple to look at. Although there are pictures all around, that simply lends to an artistic look, but not a cluttered look. Even the logo is clean and simple

People like things that are simple. Everything about Pinterest is simple. From the moment you log into Pinterest and start building boards, it easy and simple. Finding content and either pinning it or re-pinning it from someone else’s board is simple. You don’t need technical knowledge. So there are no limitations in that respect. Anyone can do Pinterest and that certainly makes it addictive!

It’s All About Sharing

Much of what Pinterest lovers adore the most is sharing. They follow their friends, celebrities, other people and entities and see what they’re doing. This is fascinating information. They can re-pin when they like what they see. If it weren’t for the sharing part of the Pinterest formula, it might not work as well as it does. The fact users get to take a peek into the lives of others and share in it and even snag a piece of it for themselves if they chose to do so may be what is most addicting about Pinterest.

It is based almost entirely on images. It’s perfect for our visual society. People can express themselves and fulfill that need we all have.

Curiosity

Pinterest allows you to follow other people on the website. That means you can see what they are pinning to their boards. This can be quite fascinating to the Pinterest user. You can learn more about people you already know or people you’re just getting to know. The fact you can see what others are pinning to their boards makes Pinterest quite intriguing to many people. It makes it quite a fascinating place for people to hang out.

Creating Digital Memories

Everyone loves creating memories. Pinterest boards are like virtual scrapbooks. The user can create several boards for what’s important to them at that moment in time. As with anything in life, the user will change over time so the boards capture a digital snapshot of that time period in their lives, their likes and dislikes, their hopes and desires, for that time when it was created.

Community

Who doesn’t love to see what their friends like? Who doesn’t want a peek into someone else’s dreams for a moment? Want to see what recipes your friends are collecting? Want to see crafts all your mom friends are planning for the upcoming holidays? Want to see what new cars the family down the street are considering? All of that can be seen on Pinterest. It’s a way to get a peek into someone else’s life.

Life Planning

Some people use Pinterest for planning. There are stories of people using it to plan a trip or even plan an entire wedding! Whatever you are planning, Pinterest offers a place for you to organize everything. You can split different aspects of your planning into different boards or put it all into one board.

Escape

Sometimes you just need to escape for life for a few minutes. One reason people love Pinterest so much is because it offers them that. They can hop on and see what their friends are pinning. Or they can surf the web and find things they want to put on their boards. But Pinterest is all about escaping from life for just a little while.

There are a number of reasons people love Pinterest. Whether it’s the community they build, the curiosity they have about others, or just a way to escape and relax, this website is changing the way people interact online.

Create and Update a Reading List About Your Profession

If you want to show you are passionate about your profession, create a board of your favorite books and books you want to read on your chosen profession. You can leave comments about each book, too. It also goes without saying, if you’re a published author, make sure you include your own books, as well.

Flaunt Your Creative and Innovative Spirit

You don’t have to showcase your own work to show how creative you are. Start a board of things that inspire you. Pinterest can go a long way in underscoring your creative flair. The collection of your boards displays who you are as a person. They speak about who you are and prove you are an innovative spirit.

Support Your Favorite Charity & Non-Profit

You can be an active contributor by pinning quality content for your favorite charity or non-profit organization. If you believe in making a difference as a part of your life, Pinterest can help you in that quest. You should only do this if you truly support the charity or non-profit. But if this is a part of who you are then you should proudly display it on Pinterest.

Pinterest is a great way to show off your personal brand. It allows you to showcase your talents and who you are as a professional. You can use it in many different ways to show what’s important to you and what you are passionate about.

How Pinterest Can Boost Your Career

How Pinterest Can Boost Your Career

Think Pinterest is just a social network to kill time on when you’re supposed to be working? Think again! There are ways, if used correctly; this new, hot network can serve as a vital resource in not only your life but specifically, your career.

Visual Resume

If you’re looking for a job, why not get creative and make Pinterest a part of the process? You can pin photos of the work you do and include links to your online portfolio. This is especially helpful if you’re in the digital arts, education, beauty, fashion, or other careers that require visual creativity. Use boards as a way to showcase your inspirations and what you offer to an employer or client.

For example, if you’re a graphic designer, you can pin a picture of a logo you have done and link it to your branded website. If you’re a beautician, you can pin photos of clients you have made up, as well as the products you use to create the looks. If you’re a teacher, you can link to lesson plans you have created for a creative lesson. Last but not least, you can link to your resume. For creative ideas for this, search Pinterest boards that have done this and find one that you like and use it for inspiration.

Increased Marketability

You can find out what a company wants simply by following the company’s, the human resources, and recruiters Pinterest’s boards. Some companies post boards focusing on human resources and management tips specifically. This gives you insight on the types of professionals they favor or might be interested in hiring. Some companies also post boards actually showing the type of candidate they like working at their company or organization, the exact qualifications they are looking for, and even job boards for the titles they’re hiring.. This is valuable information if you’re looking to work for that company.

Professional Connections

Just like Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, Pinterest offers insight into what makes a person tick. Professionals are just like anyone else and use boards to tell the stories of who they are outside of the office. You can follow the “pins” of someone you want to get to know better and use the information you learn as a springboard for conversations.

Job Hunting

Companies, universities, media organizations, and other entities are actually using Pinterest to post jobs and job seeker resources. Since it’s a visual website, a photo will be pinned along with the link. You can check out the Pinterest boards of companies like FlexJobs or educational institutions such as the Coppin State University Career Services Center to find information on recruiters, links to job boards, and other information about job seeking if you’re looking for a job.

Inspiration

Pinterest can help you in so many more aspects than you think in finding a job. You can find many resources on making yourself marketable for a job, how to conduct yourself in an interview, what to wear, and much more. It can direct you to career books and blogs that can enrich your knowledge even further. You can pin the things that inspire you to your board for future reference when you find that “perfect job.”

When looking for a new job, the last place you might think to look is Pinterest. But, it might be wise to make it your “go to” place. Whether you’re looking for a job or looking for tips on how to conduct while in an interview, what to wear, or anything else career-oriented, Pinterest has it all.
