Welcome to The Connected Church news!
Our next news is from Pinterest. Last week, Pinterest announced that they are adding a new iOS widget, which will help people look at the pins that are of interest to them.
As a user, you can select your interest, for example, if you’re interested in Bible-based business concepts, then you can pin that as an interest. Then Pinterest will start showing you all the pins and images that are related to your interest area. Pinterest is starting to think ahead of other platforms when it comes to engaging people on their mobile in a visual way.
It’s obviously showing with their numbers, because they now have more than 450 million users and it’s fast raising, and they are doing something that other companies are not yet starting to think about. If your ministry is not on Pinterest, if you are not using Pinterest, and if you think it’s an audience that could benefit from what you’re doing as a ministry, then definitely check out Pinterest.
