The New York Times is pinning on Pinterest

The New York Times is finally pinning on Pinterest. The newspaper claimed its Pinterest account several weeks ago, but it wasn’t until about 18 hours ago that actual pins started appearing on the account’s four boards (Hair, Summer Escapes, Sweets, and Street Food).

Here are a few screengrabs of what the account looks like this morning.

Each board seems to have an equal number of followers similar to the account’s overall follower count: 347. While the images are certainly beautiful and on target for Pinterest’s typical content, I hope to see a bit more creativity down the road. But you have to start somewhere and The New York Times has finally joined the more than 150 newspapers on Pinterest.

  1. The developer of this Social Networking site is so genius. Pinterest is very simple but it takes away your stress every time you’re browsing it because it has lots of beautiful images that brings positive outlook. I know I am over reacting but this is the effect of Pinterest to me and to my friends. ;)
