Pinterest has blown up this year, and sorry guys – its not for you.
With women dominating the populace at almost 70% of registered users the content is mostly made up of clothes, food and motivational typography.
For now Pinterest is growing extremely fast without much help from the male demographic and maybe they won’t need guns and video games for a while. And why would they need men?! Women have always dominated the social media market where over 84% of popular social media sites have a majority female ratio. Facebook has always had more active female users than male and when Google+ launched, the girls seemed to stay away. Now Google’s attempt at Facebook is almost all forgotten.
I think the ladies know a thing or two about technology.
Unfortunately, Pinterest isn’t all fun and games. There is also a potential for a hostile litigious battle ground.
Why?!….well just because we’re still stuck in talking about an anachronistic concept called “copyright”.
Being myself into art (music, writing, etc) I know very well the controversy I’m about to touch (i may cover extensively the topic in an appropriate post): the problem is not related with the process of creation, or production of art….but with the concept of “Industry” that has barely nothing to do with art itself
Art has been here since forever…. it’s only in the last 60 years someone made an industry out of it… and that’s very typical: a self-empowered group try to make money on someonelse’s back, trying to keep things steady, to keep making money out of it… till the whole system they build… collapses under the pressure of changes…and the only thing that will remain from the death of this umpteenth falling empire….is Art itself
