I first laughed when I heard chatter about Pinterest. For those who don’t know, it’s a social media outlet where you share images rather than statuses. It’s really caught on with women, as many women have found things like recipes, fashion tips, and other things that (not to be sexist) generally aren’t as interesting to men as they are to women. I thought ‘Oh, just another passing fad’.
Soon, I started seeing my wife sitting in front of the computer for long stretches at a time, failing to answer roughly two-thirds of questions directed her way. When I probed to find out what was the new source of interest, it turns out she had come across Pinterest.
Now, I have only seen Pinterest in passing, but I have to say, having one person in our household has been a good thing.
