Description

Very happy to see there is a Pinterest plugin from Scott's great post (http://codex.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2013/06/02/pinterest-pinboard-widget-wordpress-plugin-now-available-on-the-commons/)!

I'm a big fan of the interface. I have a profile / board here: http://pinterest.com/schmattaluv/boards/

Is there any interest in setting up a Pinterest board for CUNY Academic Commons that might complement the current Facebook and Twitter accounts?

I checked and there's minimal presence on Pinterest currently; the ones that work just go to the home page (4 hits: http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=cuny%20commons)

Ideas to highlight
- Content from academic programs / initiatives hosted on the commons (urls are http://[XXX].commons.cuny.ed)
- WordPress plugins
- Great blogs / blog posts
- Wiki content
- How To section
- Welcome tools (10 steps, etc.)

Advantages / benefits of using Pinterest
- The interface is like a bulletin board, is very graphical, so it is very visually pleasing
- Popular easy-to-use technology
- If built correctly all images link to content and have keyword searchability, which might add to traffic

I would love to volunteer to help with this, if there is consensus it is a beneficial social networking tool.
