7 Ways Journalists Can Use Pinterest

Virtual pinboard Pinterest helps journalists find trend stories, display their work and more. The social networking site has more than four million users, landing it a spot on a list of most visited social media sites of 2011. Perfect for showing off your favorite finds as you troll the web, users “pin” images to themed boards for visually-appealing displays. Don’t be put off by its “invite-only” status. Even if you don’t have a friend who can pass along instant access, simply request an invite from the site and you’ll receive it in a few days.

Once you’re signed up, check out these seven ways journalists can tap into the growing site’s potential:


  1. Feature your top stories.
  2. Mobile-pin pics.
  3. Find ideas for trend stories.
  4. Find pictures suitable for online stories.
  5. Photojournalism portfolio.
  6. Use it as an online storyboard.
  7. Curate the news.
