Leytonstone now on Pinterest

Pinterest logo Pinterest is one of the new kids on the block in the social media world.

A favourite of Barack Obama’s campaign it’s seen lightning growth in the USA in the last year and has started to take off in a big way in the UK, though one report I read last week suggested that its growth may now be slowing.

Pinterest is an electronic noticeboard that combines photos with text and comments, a sort of amalgamation of Flickr and Facebook. It’s entirely free and is used by hobbyists as well as companies posting pictures of their products.

I don’t know whether there will be much benefit to having photos of Leytonstone on there, but I thought I’d give it a try.

My Leytonstone Pinterest site is: http://pinterest.com/leytonstonee11/leytonstone/

  1. How funny, I was just talking about this yesterday with people at Stone Space and have since been thinking about how Leytonstone Museum might utilize it. The issue I saw was copyright. If you ‘borrow’ photographs from other peoples sites are you republishing them and therefore breaking copyright? Anyway, if you don’t mind I’ll link to your pinterest on the museum as I think photos of Leytonstone on there is fab!
