Pinterest isn’t just a site for craft ideas and motivational sayings, it’s an un-ending resource of cars, tech, manly cooking and travel that offers more than enough reasons for guys to use Pinterest.
Pinterest is a fast-growing social network where people find pictures, videos or websites they like and “pin” them to a board that their friends can see. Predominately viewed by women, Pinterest does offer men a lot of great resources they maybe would not consider. Yes, there are boards devoted to kittens. However, there are also boards devoted to Ferraris. Come along with us while we take a look at some of the uses for Pinterest by men.
1. Travel the World (or Explore Locally) With Pinterest
Looking for a new place to explore? Traveling to a new country and want to see the best places to visit? Pinterest’s travel section has it covered! The site is full of rich media covering some of the world’s best travel destinations, like the Burj Al Arab in Dubai to the Maldives Underwater Hotel.
Additionally, it is a great resource for local travel and day trip ideas. For example, for those living in Ohio, they can take a trip to the river gorge in Logan.
