Pinning My Interests with Pinterest
Is Pinterest the last social media that you think of? Do you think it’s just for photos? Do you think it’s just for crafting? Who do you think uses Pinterest?
It turns out that over 200 Million people, according to ZDNet (as of August 2018), use Pinterest. If that number surprises you, as it did me, then maybe you should consider pinning yourself to Pinterest. But here’s the best reason to use Pinterest, it may be the best social media platform for finding people who share the same interests as you in products, ideas, services, crafts, quotes, health, and travel.
My specific interest in Pinterest is in finding relevant infographics for education, health, and my current area of study, instructional design. There are countless numbers of health and education infographics that you can pin to your page, share with your friends or coworkers through email or to other social media websites, and that you can embed into your websites or blogs.
If you are interested in seeing infographics related to instructional design, follow this link to see numerous instructional design infographics available through Pinterest. You can also narrow your focus and find infographics for a more specific topic of interest in instructional design.
For an example of an instructional design infographic about eLearning that you can embed into your website, I clicked on the 7 eLearning Benefits Infographic below in Pinterest. Clicking on the infographic in Pinterest brought me to the infographic’s webpage where I found the embed code for inserting it into a blog or webpage.
Have you pinned an instructional design (or other topic) infographic? Have you embedded an infographic from Pinterest in your blog or website?
