Social Media Agency: Pinterest For Men
In the USA, 87% of Pinterest (social media site) sign-ups are women, which begs the question: where do us males go to? I can honestly say with my hand on my heart that I have never and do not intend to use Pinterest, not just because joining a new social media site is daunting but because my passion for women’s clothes and recipes are just below my interest for a kick in the gonads. This set off a light bulb. An original idea that was bound to change the way men look at bacon and beards. Unfortunately this has already been thought up by quite a few clever men, so rather than sit and whine about why all my ideas have already been thought up by someone else or subconsciously nicked (notably the spinning pot noodle fork I thought of when eating spag bol as a 7 year-old), I’ll just give you a brief summary of my favourite man Pinterests.
This is my favourite because the logo screams gentleman and I consider myself to be one. The content isn’t to shabby either, this is what co founder Glen Stansberry had to say
“Pinterest is for sharing everything under the sun, and at Gentlemint we’re just focused on ‘manly’ content. We don’t care who is using the site—men, women, aliens—we’re just interested in a subset of content…”
I’ve just requested to join Gentlemint and I’m looking forward to spending my lunch hours creating board with the worlds most inspiring beard.
This one’s geared more to the laddish end of the male spectrum, touting more babes than beards. In my opinion it all depends on what mood you’re in and the kind of man you see yourself as.
All in all I think it’s just nice to have somewhere where us dudes can “man-out” and not feel bad about maybe looking at what’s going to be hot on the red carpet this summer…
