Attack of the Nonprofit Infographic!

Yes! Another nonprofit infographic! Infographics are so 2.0, aren't they?

But this post really isn't about infographics. The real story is about a relatively new web tool called Pinterest. It was recently featured on social media doyenne Beth Kanter's blog. Here is how she described it:
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard where you can organize and share images and videos you discover on the web. Think of it as a social network of visuals -- where you can find images from other people with the same interest or use it to curate your own visual "interest space".
Beth has used it to collect "snappy" nonprofit infographics such as the one below (originally created by Network for Good). You could also use it to collect and share photos or videos featuring the great work of your nonprofit. Or it could feature visuals of your mission's outcome. Who knows what other applications it may have!

You can even embed a"Pin It" tab on your browser to immediately "pin" an item of interest to your personal "pin board" and share it with others.  Wow! 

BTW, check out the infographics Beth has "pinned" to date.
