Salams,

So I heard Pinnterest is like the new Facebook. Anyone on it or try it out? Seems like it's better than Facebook in that it's not about you or other people but about stuff you like. And it's pretty apolitical, people can't really add news stories which is what FB's news feed is filled with.

There are so many beautiful things!! But I wonder if this makes you crave beautiful things more or less? They do have places for recipes and books though... always a good sign Wink

I'm on Pinterest!  It's fun.

I don't think it makes you crave material things more....

It does make me crave some of the recipes I've seen...

And there are several knitting/crochet patterns that I've found.

Nope. Getting too old for all this stuff!

The Almighty Allah says,

"When a servant thinks of Me, I am near.
When he invokes Me, I am with him.
If he reflects on Me in secret, I reply in secret,
And if he acknowledges Me in an assembly,
I acknowledge him in a far superior assembly."

- Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reptd by Abu Huraira

as salaamu alaykum,

I am too!  It's addictive.  It can get kind of overwhelming with just so much stuff (like you've been shopping for too long or when your eyes glaze over from too many decor or fashion blogs), but it's fun too and you can find really interesting and unique things, beauty/household tips, etc.

There are a few things I don't like about it - sometimes people pin things that trace back to nothing, which can be annoying (though people say it's not about the source or actually buying the item but just enjoying looking at it visually), and the fact that your profile is open to everyone to see and anyone can follow you (and copy/share your pins - which is fine but I have one random person who is following me and pins almost everything I pin! I feel like they're trying to steal my identity!) Also, the majority of Pinterest users are women and seem to be like older married moms so there are tons of pins on making crafts, recipes, housekeeping, and seems to be a pretty strong Christian element too.  And love for Ryan Gosling... I didn't even know who that was before Pinterest  Roll Eyes (an American actor for those who don't know).  But you do find other things too.  It's great for visual people and think it's probably most useful for artists, photographers, designers, etc.

salaam

I finally got my invite to pinterest woohoo!  I think it's okay but to me it's very similar to Tumblr which has more functions - you can post and share audio, video, weblinks as well as pix.  I think tumblr is more user friendly and has more content because I notice a lot of the same images are on both sites but tumblr had them first. 

However, it is quite addictive and I feel I need to find my feet with it.  I have the pin button on my bookmarks bar which makes adding things easy.


My board is here http://pinterest.com/quietfi/ if anyone wants to add me.
