April 11, 2016
Pinterest urges users to “discover and save creative ideas,” and Penn State’s Pinterest account is bursting with 26 boards worth of discoveries.
One of the most rapidly growing social platforms, Pinterest is an shareable bookmarking platform driven solely by visuals.
Are you nostalgic about places where you laughed, lived and studied on our campuses? You’ll like the “Penn State Favorite Places” and “Penn State Campuses” boards. The “Days in the Life” board shares slice-of-life pins chronicling the year as it passes. The “Penn State Days Gone By” and “We Are #PennStateFamily” boards offer alumni pride and fan nostalgia. For inspiration, go to the “Blue Sky Encouragement” board. There are 2,500 Pinterest users following Penn State’s account, with an average of 3,000 daily views. A space for collaboration, Penn State works with the Smeal College of Science Outreach team to populate the “Science-U: K-12” board with science content focused at younger audiences.
