Pinterest, Google+ and Facebook, Oh My.

I'm sure that by now most of you are aware of the new social network called Pinterest . It has suddenly appeared on the social network landscape seemingly out of nowhere. There was very little fanfare building up to its launch, it was just there. Pinterest combines the words "pin" and "interest"Pinterest is based around photography. From what I understand (and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) it's a site where people can post photographs of their interests with a brief description and not much else. People can then "like" the photographs and leave a brief comment. It's a very appealing concept to the amateur photographers out there who want an audience for their work. I can really see how this would be very popular with decorators, home stagers, and to an extent, real estate agents...
