Fassinating Fassbender @ Pinterest

Continuing on with  Fassy History Month, I recall some time ago when I was asked if there is a one place source where images of Michael used at the blog can be found. No, there isn't. One would have to go page by page to look at the images I have posted in the nearly four years since I created FF. Also, when I was having troubles with tumblr a few weeks back, someone at Twitter told me about Pinterest. I had never heard of it up to that point, however, the very next day, I read about an internet poll from a respectable organization that listed the top five most influential and most used social media websites. And would you know, third behind Facebook and Twitter, was this thing called Pinterest that I just heard of for the first time the day before. Not on the list was tumblr. At least not yet. So I took a moment to review Pinterest, I filled out the info to get a Pinterest page, and guess what, I was told that I'll be invited to join... in a few days. O-kay. So I waited, ... a few days later, I got my invitation to join Pinterest.

The concept behind Pinterest is that you 'pin' up images of things you like, and you categorize those things you like. Also, you can create a separate board of one of the things you like, and allow others to 'pin' up images as well. So along with creating my own little boards for private use for me to post my favorite images of interesting places to travel, beautiful men, favorite actresses, etc., I have the Fassinating Fassbender board for me and YOU to pin images of Michael at. You can also post images related to Michael, and things that you really, really like and want to share with FF friends at the Michael pinterest board.

To join, please just email me and I'll send you an invite. If you are already on Pinterest, please let me know your username and I will add you on to the FF board. Just that simple.

Once there, you just click on 'add' to have this window pop-up, and you will select 'upload a pin', create a comment about it, and it will post on the FF board. To comment on existing images, you will just click on 'comment', and your note will pop up below the image along with the other comments. The only rule that Pinterest have is that we can't post nude images.

I hope you all enjoy this latest annex of Fassinating Fassbender. But with this particular tool, ALL of YOU will have a say so in developing it. You may post images there that I don't have or never seen before. Also, like how Emilie had that fassytastic Paris adventure a week ago and posted her exclusive photo of Michael, you can do the same at the Fassinating Fassbender Pinterest board.

Don't forget, just send me an email letting me know you want an invite to join that board. Thanks!
