Keeping up-to-date with the latest social media networks is something JuNK iT! prides itself in doing. We love keeping social and interacting with our customers on as many possible sites. The latest sites that are causing quite a buzz around them are Pinterest and Gentlemint. Both have similar concepts in that they are somewhere between visual social bookmarking and scrap booking. Pinterest seems to have a larger female audience while Gentlemint has a larger male audience. With the appearance of these new social networks we might be witnessing a slight change in social networking where smaller communities centered around similar interests are beginning to develop. It appears people are no longer caring that there are 850 million users on Facebook (other than advertisers) and appear to be shifting to these smaller sites that add value to their interests. Businesses have a new challenge ahead of them by recognizing this shift and participating where possible. Do you have any plans of participating on these sites? If so, what approach will you be taking?
