Are you on pinterest?  If you are we would love to follow you.  Please leave a link in the comment box at the end of the post.  Youth ministry media is current on pinterest and even though I had to trade my mancard in to go on pinterest, I am loving the layout.  It is basically a visual version of twitter.  I think pinterest is here to stay.
Here are a few things that stand out about this infographic on pinterest.
1. Visually above everyone else.  I do see the potential of this in youth ministry.  Especially, when it comes to Bible reading/memorization.  I love being able to see what other youth groups are doing, and then pinning them to save for later.
2.  80% of pins are repins.  Think about that for a second.  That is huge.  How often are your tweets retweeted?  If you pin something there is a huge chance that it will be repinned.  I have seen this with my pinterest account.  Something will get pinned 10-15 times by random people.
3.  47% of the demographic is between 18-34.  Again, the millennials are leading the charge here.  Churches who want to reach these demographics have to start thinking differently.
