Sure, Pinterest is taking the social Web by storm ... but is the site too girly to hit it big with the guys?

I don't think so! From a business stand point, you would be a fool not to utilize this outlet. From a SEO perspective this site has a PR 6(page rank), in other words this would be a site your website would want to connect with.

There are countless categories for almost every walk a life, so girly? Maybe, but since we're talking business, you better sign up for an invite.

Agreed. One can't ignore the rank just because of the girl-appeal.

I'm a dude and I use it... I don't get the whole the Girl Thing. What makes it girly?

I wandered over to Pinterest a couple of days ago, thinking it never hurts to try out a new social media flavor. But as a woman, I even have to say it's really girly. Not that it isn't a helpful site, but I think females who like to socialize with females gravitate towards it. Pinterest's male counterpart, Gentlemint, will, I think, be a turnoff for the female population. I suggest the owners of these two social media outlets join forces. The gender bias is strange, no?

That's so funny that there is already a manly alternative to Pinterest. I don't know how many men have the patience to sit and share pics like women do though. My husband definitely does not, haha.

I'm just getting into the Pinterest, and I have to admit - of all my friends that use it on Facebook, 90% are females.
