Pinterest the greatest tool ever!?

The Question…


Pinterest Logo 2 Pinterest the greatest tool ever!?

The greatest tool ever! or The greatest tool ever?

One thing you do have right is that Pinterest IS a tool! But is it the best tool? It all depends.

This hype begins whenever another new device, platform, or shiny widget comes along. In social media we have been hearing about every new platform and tool regularly.

I have been seeing many posts and articles touting the potential power of @Pinterest. I myself am a user. Yet all it has, like other tools, is potential. That is until it no longer has potential and a new tool takes its place. I find it even more unsettling that the rumbling is beginning to shuffle and tout this tool as the new “it” social platform for recruiting, etc.

I question this, but only time will tell. I never mind being proven wrong especially when it is positive for everyone involved!

NEVER focus on the TOOL. ALWAYS focus on the CONCEPT!

Remember to never depend on a social platform. Only use it as a tool. It is the concept of connecting and seeking ideas that you should depend on!

Just like any tool you get, it’s about what you put in. Pinterest is no better a resource than you are.

Is your employer watching?

All of us are on some type of social network. Tell me this:

  • How much do you share about your work relationships?
  • Does your employer mind?
  • Do you, as a company, have a long drawn out-tough-to-understand social media policy or is it simple?
  • Would you be reprimanded or praised for what you share?

steve jobs Steve Jobs Resigns as Apple CEO | His Resignation Letter

This is the resignation letter Steve Jobs sent to the Apple board:

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.
