Yes, Obama is Now on Pinterest.


Barack Obama has joined Pinterest! Okay, before you get your panties in a bunch thinking that Obama is spending his time glued to the highly addictive social media site Pinterest instead of running our country, don’t worry. The boards are actually run by the “Obama for America, President Obama’s 2012 campaign.” And it’s actually pretty sweet…

There are boards for “Just the Facts,” “The First Family,” and “Obama 2012 Merch.” But the most amusing are the very Pinterest-y centric “Obama-inspired Recipes” and the “Pet Lovers for Obama.”  In total Obama has eight boards and forty-four pins.

It’s interesting that Obama is embracing this hot new social media format, the Obama campaign and his administration has been quite savvy about reaching out to the people of America. In the past they’ve embraced Twitter and Facebook, and now they are adding another way to reach out to potential voters. But do you think Pinterest is a place for politics? Should it be left to home décor, fashion and recipes?
