The Roost on Pinterest

edited March 19 in Main
https://www.pinterest.com/trstriathlon/

An anonymous volunteer has built up quite an impressive set of Pinterest boards over the past couple months, to showcase our content and help broaden our audience. If you're into Pinterest, go ahead and have a look. Do some re-pins or re-boarding or poking or whatever it is you do over there.

If you're not into Pinterest already, I cannot recommend it with good conscience. There's a good chance that within a few days, you'll find yourself fishing around in a dumpster behind a warehouse for old pallets, weathered floor tiles, and bent nails of juuuust the right size and bentness.

Huge thank you to our anonymous Queen Of All Pins. All hail your invisible QOAP.

    Allow me to summarize: "Rock the cock, and put a pin in it, or get bent."

    Thanks, "Anonymous"!

    When Facebook takes a shit for a few weeks because they changed their algorithms, and twitter's stupid fucking idea about curating content goes haywire, you can thank @M Ware for building an alternative method of reaching people. Blow-ins are the heart and soul of this operation.

    I signed up for this but I don't understand it or how to use it. My girlfriend tried explaining it to me but I still don't know what to do.

    @jakesaunders this is a bit dated, but maybe it will help...here's the gist of it:
    "Pinterest is a visual pin board where you can collect images you find on the Web and arrange them in categories with links back to the original site. It’s been described as being like a binder or folder that you use to store everything you clip from magazines and newspapers, but you have the added advantage of seeing what all of the people you are connected to have been clipping and saving." from here:
    http://readwrite.com/2012/01/05/a_guys_guide_to_getting_going_on_pinterest/

    Not only can you re-pin items from Pinterest, you can also pin things you find elsewhere on the web. Say you want to have all the nutrition info for 10 different kinds of energy bars available to look at in one place. Create a board called Bars then go to the site of each manufacturer find the nutrition info and then pin it to your board. Voilà! Now if you want to do a quick comparison you've got all the links in one place.  Does that help?

    Yes this makes sense. I'm not sure what I will use it for but happy to help pin things.

    Please don't go out of your way figuring out Pinterest if your sole intent is to help popularize this site - the best way to do that is still, by far, sharing our posts on Facebook.

    If a 'Like' is like holding hands and flirting, a 'Share' is like skipping dinner and getting straight down to business on the first date. 

    Pinterest = hopeful experiment that could expand the breadth of users. MW is doing a bang up job keeping an eye on the analytics/demographics and adjusting pins based on attracting a balanced mix of followers.

    Facebook = the sledgehammer of social media. Take a big swing and hope to God or Whatever that you nail the algorithm just right. If there's an army of fans out there sharing FB posts, it could actually make a big difference. 

    Thank you @jakesaunders !! If you did sign up just to check out the TRS boards, that's pretty excellent shit.

    In my quest to find the end of Pinterest and fill the TRS boards-- https://www.pinterest.com/trstriathlon/ with random goodness, I found this. Time to whip out the old Singer and make a skirt for me and a kilt for the Giant (yeah, right, I'm no seamstress). I can't make this stuff up.

    I am dusting this thread off for a Pinterest update. As of this morning The Roost has 2,041 followers, and according to Pinterest analytics here is a list of the things that they are interested in, and also demographic info for TriRoost followers, as well as for everyone who views the TriRoost boards:

    I'm pretty shocked not to see booze and women with enormous butts on the list, since those seem to be very popular among the followers, based on notifications that show what our followers have liked and pinned each day, but I digress. I hope you find the stats interesting. As always, you can visit The Triathlon Roost boards here: https://www.pinterest.com/triroost/boards/

    Finally followed the TRS account. Though, I still don't know enough about pintrest to know what that actually means :)
