Pining For Love on Pinterest

If you haven’t discovered Pinterest, take a moment to check it out. Pinners pin images onto boards related to their interests. As with all social media platforms, Pinterest allows users to share content. Teachers use it to share educational resources; foodies share their favourite recipes; and job seekers share their competencies by using Pinterest at a virtual resume. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I wanted to see what the Pinterest community was saying about “love”.

I was disappointed when the search results provided image after image of women’s clothing and jewellery with the comments, “Love!” or “Love it!”. I was expecting photos of couples in amorous embrace. Where was the love on Pinterest?

I was looking for love and Pinterest left me empty handed, surely YouTube would not disappoint. I would find some love or at least some love songs. Sweet Barry White was there waiting for me. This is one of my favourite love songs. Do you have a favourite song you would like to share? Let’s keep this love fest going.
