If you haven’t signed up to Pinterest, you really need to. It’s going to be one of the biggest social networks out there and is growing faster than Twitter and Facebook did, in relative terms. Even though 80% of users are women, doesn’t mean it’s a site made for women. Us men need to get on their too. I wrote a post on why Pinterest is great for designers a while back, worth a read.
