The Millennial Story, Told By Infographic(s)
The explosion of Pinterest over the past few weeks has been interesting, if not entertaining to watch. For those of you who are not yet among the 6M+ users who have jumped aboard the Pinterest bandwagon in recent weeks, I'll quickly break it down for you. The site offers a place for users to mark or "pin" their favorite books, destinations, recipes, iphone apps, and more -- and then organize them in a seamless and somewhat intuitive way for all to browse. It's easy, it's visually pleasing and it's certainly got the nonprofit world abuzz wondering how they should best jump into the fun.
As some nonprofits watch with curiosity and others take the dive in, the result has included some great attempts, like Charity:Water and AARP's pages and of course a plethora of informative blog posts like Avi Kaplan's Steal These 42 Creative Pinterest Ideas for Nonprofits or Joe Waters post detailing why causes should start using the site.
My pinterest site is simple albeit nerdy, I've included pins of some of my favorite GenY infographics - all of which have been sitting in random folders on my computer. Thank you Pinterest for ensuring that at least one part of my life is organized. I hope you'll take a look through and add your own GenY infographics to this growing collection. And, while I haven't been able to find a plethora of relevant boards for Millennial engagement, would love your thoughts on what we should be keeping an eye on.
