I Started “Pinterest”

I opened my account at “Pinterest”  Photo sharing service.

Pinterest began in the United States, so I suppose many Americans have already known it.   But it’s not popular in Japan yet.   It seems that users are mainly women.  It’s very easy to use the sites.   It doesn’t need English skill much.  (good to me^^)   It’s very nice to be able to share Pinterest’s photos with Facebook friends.  Maybe with Twitter too.   I’m not belong to Twitter yet…  In the beginning I thought what was interesting???   But I found it interesting  in browsing through.   I search for nice photos for my collection every day.  What a waste of time!   I also want to upload my photo works some day.  I heard that Japanese on-line shopping company “Rakuten” invested in Pinterest.  Good decision!

Social networking services are now very popular throughout the world.  Recently, there seems to be voice posting service too.  But it’s not easy to monetize those services.   Pinterest for free,  this blog for free  internet for free.  What a good age we live in.   According to the newspaper,  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said “we don’t provide the service to make money.  we want the social bond of people to  strengthen”   Investors may feel at a loss.  Stock became half price of the first listing.

I think people in this modern era seek for spiritual relationship rather than material wealth.  After people are filled with a certain amount of material thing, do they desire for spiritual relationship with people having similar taste on the net?   Not only family and community but friends on the net …   By the way, how do American make so many Facebook friends?  hundreds, thousands friends…

I spend time for  SNS,  even not bringing money.  Especially it takes time to write this blog, translating with a dictionary(This blog is English version of my original one. Look at the personal link)  Why am I doing  these?   I feel the unique world on the internet.  I feel the warmth of people I meet there.    It’s very interesting and it’s fun.   Thank you for reading my blog(*^.^*)   An accounting teacher said only what is written down means existence.   No record means non-existence.   I ‘d like to leave something by writing this blog while I’m alive.

  1. We really do live in a great age in a lot of ways, I think. I’ve been blogging for a little over a year now, and I’ve been happily surprised at how nice people are in the blogosphere. It’s great. 🙂

  2. This was a lovely post. I agree many people seek a connection.
    Personally, I haven’t used Pinterest yet.
    So many new internet sites. Too many to try to keep track of.
    We are glad you take the time to translate for us! I will have to visit your Japanese site to practice my Nihongo!

    You asked how Americans have so many Facebook friends…
    Many don’t even really know those people. I only add people I know in real life.
    Thanks to a University international exchange program, I know many people, but only about 100.
    Facebook may be free, but they have gotten in trouble for selling user information to companies and they make money from advertising.
