Pinterest for Men: Six Tips for Better Pinning

Don't listen to what anyone says, Pinterest isn't a destination for women. In fact, 10 of the top 45 Pinterest users are now men. Still not a majority, but if you're into cars, gadgets, good design, clothes, and cocktails, you'll want to jump in, since it's a great way to share and keep track of things you like and may want to act on later. Think of it as Evernote or Pocket with pictures (except they aren't your own pictures, since Pinterest is all about pinning and sharing what's already on your feed rather than adding original content). Arguably, it's even more like the latter app's article bookmarking feature, thanks to the just-updated Pinterest article pins, which make it easy for you to find, share, save-to-read-later the stories you like. Before you start pinning, though, there are a few things you need to know, since Pinterest isn't quite like all the other social media sites. (And don't forget to follow 'Men's Journal' on Pinterest.)
