Project Management on Pinterest

Project Management on PinterestLately I’ve been getting into using Pinterest, a social networking site designed to allow users to collect and share information by “pinning” things that they find useful or interesting onto “boards”; pages within a user’s hierarchy of pages dedicated to a topic of the user’s choice. You can also collaborate on boards; multiple authors can pin sites onto one board; this makes Pinterest useful as a group-sharing mechanism among like-minded individuals. So far Pinterest seems quite powerful, and the numbers are certainly there – analysis indicates that Pinterest has been experience massive growth over the past few months.

One thing that haven’t noticed much of is project management information on Pinterest. Searching for “project management”, “PMI” or “PMP” reveals very few pins and very few boards. It appears (just by browsing the site) that, as of February of 2012, the majority of users on Pinterest are women, and that the majority of posts are about clothes, fashion, food and education. So far it has been difficult to find project managers or other professionals interested in PMI or Agile methodologies on the service.

As such, I’ve set up a PMP Certification Pinterest board that I hope can become a collaborative board to share information about Project Management Professional certification, the PMP exam, and other PMI-related information of interest to project managers. I’m not sure how to advertise boards (I’m relatively new to the service) but I’m hoping that I’ll be able to find like-minded project managers who are interested in sharing information about project management online.

If you’re a project manager and you’re already sharing project management research, blog posts or other information on Pinterest, please let me know! I’d be glad to link up with you and help forward the profession on Pinterest.
