Pinterest, launched in March of 2010, has become popular in the lives of many Red Lion students.
Many turn to pinterest for guidance to their everyday lives.
Pinterest is a website and application that offers the sharing of DIY (Do It Yourself) Fashion, Food, and many more categories onto ones “boards”. These boards are created and decorated by the “pinner” virtually and serve as categories for the different things pinned.
Other categories on Pinterest include gifts, videos, men’s fashion, education, tattoos, outdoors, and quotes. Pinterest is also used by over 70 million people all over the world.
Red Lion student, senior Emily Hylind said, “I go onto Pinterest for hairstyles, beauty tips, and fashion ideas. Pinterest is where I learned to do things like my makeup, and I learned how to wear certain outfits. I also go for work out plans, and recently I’ve been learning how to decorate my future dorm room.”
Another Red Lion student has only begun to use it more recently in the past couple of months. senior Stone McCreary “I was introduced to Pinterest by Mr. Christian Castle. I pin clothing ideas, quotes, superheros, I mean basically everything. I even found most of the stuff for my Christmas list on Pinterest.”
And it looks like not only the senior class has been involved in the Pinterest phenomenon.
Jayda Francisco, grade 10 said, “I look at Pinterest for all the DIY, even though I never attempt to do it. I just love looking at everything on there.”
