As a social media site, the content is driven by the users. So, yeah, with the predominant demographic being women ages 25-55 right now, the content looks particularly feminine. For it to change, it’s going to take some brave souls willing to jump into that trend and pin what they like. But, Pinterest is whatever the people are pinning-so that could change.
Ann, I don’t know that any of the guys on my personal profile have pinned anything at all. I definitely found it intriguing that so many sports teams and reporters were taking a place in Pinterest. Maybe the Reds are there! LOL
Joan, I agree that many are dismissing the tool based on stereotypes of the content being shared now. It will be interesting to see if those stereotypes begin to be dismissed as the site gains credibility in the business world… this month has certainly been crammed full of that. I personally, hope to see more men adopt it and more balance in pinned content.
