... And Now For Something (P)interesting!

You may have heard about it already, but if not I'm sure you will soon. Pinterest has been taking the “social linking” scene by storm. My wife is literally hooked on it. Since starting to use it just less than two months ago, she has convinced quite a few people in her social circle (including friends and family members) to sign up for an account on Pinterest.com. It couldn't have been easier, either! You see, my wife's circle is all on Facebook and they already share a link or two on their social feeds every now and then. Of course, that all changed once they started using Pinterest. Since Pinterest lets users sign up by simply linking their Facebook account with Pinterest, getting started with social linking in Pinterest couldn't be easier and soon enough my wife's circle were all posting links -- complete with those schnazzy preview images -- on Pinterest and their Facebook feeds.

So, you might be wondering where I'm going with this. Yes, I am impressed with Pinterest at the moment. They've managed to take one of the most basic aspects of the World Wide Web and break it down into a bite-sized process that non-technical web surfers can enjoy and benefit from. Micro-blogging and link sharing are now a no-brainer. However, being the software developer that I am, I'm always interested in how these types of sites -- and their underlying features -- work.

At REM we have the capabilities to build sites like Pinterest that interface with today's most popular social-networking sites (such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and the list goes on) and we're always excited to work with our clients to take their vision for the perfect, online hangout and make it into a reality.

In the end, this is a callout to our existing and potential new clients: if you have a crazy idea for a new curve on the social-networking scene, don't be shy; we can help you build something Pinteresting!
