I picked up my mother’s copy of Women’s Day. Thumbing through a few pages I read about dinner (and cookie) recipes, household tips, clever pop culture items, quick style blurbs and general interest items.
Scrolling Pinterest’s front page, I spy a recipe for a sugary confection, photos of style “looks”, make up tips, pictorial witticisms, photos of cool things to make or do around the house.
Women’s Day, the paper magazine, is social to the extent of giving the magazine to someone or clipping out an article and physically sharing it. Pinterest is social as simple as finding something you like and pinning it for anyone one to view.
