Pinterest is different to most social media sites in that it was built around the concept of pinning pictures and sharing them with the world.
This post is re-blogged from Two Drops of Ink. Lydia Oyetunji takes a lot of effort to explain how Pinterest works and how you can use it to your advantage, it is one of the newest social media sites and has grown to become quite popular in such a short period and as with every other social site does help any blog writer promote their site from both a social and SEO perspective.
The other aspect of the site, that I have learnt, is that it is very easy to grow a following. If I am guilty of anything in respect of Pinterest it is that I don’t post enough, something which because of Lydia’s encouragement I am committed to doing more of.
In 1980 social media made its first début in the form of “Internet Relay Chats” (IRC). Internet relay chat empowered us to send chat messages over the internet. Nine years later “Six Degrees” was created and evolved into a major way for people and companies to communicate. Six Degrees users could upload a profile and befriend other site users. Blogging didn’t become a popular form of social media until 1999.
Social media started changing the world and the way we communicated in 2000. Remember Myspace? Photobucket and Flickr were at the top of photo sharing, but now we have Picasa and Instagram, which are now the leaders by far.
In this article, I will explain the features and benefits of some popular social media sites. How these sites are currently utilized.
