MapQuest Links To Pinterest
Are you one of the internet early adopters who has flocked to internet "pinning" site Pinterest.com? Denver-based mapping site MapQuest is hoping to attract users of the growing social media site by helping them to "re-pin" maps on the Pinterest site, the firm said Friday. MapQuest said it has added a new "Pinterest Button" to automatically create a map page and link for Pinterest, which allows users to share photos, graphics, and trade comments and more around those images. Pinterest has been of interest to users who create "pin boards" of their favorite images of things they love or are inspired by, which has been one of the latest Internet trends; MapQuest said that its users have already been using it in conjunction with Pinterest.
