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.
