Buzz Out Loud 1580: Men have little interest in Pinterest (Podcast)

Rafe Needleman and Donald Bell join Brian Tong on the show today to discuss all the new video-streaming options coming down the pipe. We got Amazon, Viacom, HBO, Netflix, Verizon, Redbox, and now possibly another service called Quickflix. Which one will you choose? In other news, the iPad 3 is coming in March, and we investigate who exactly Pinterest appeals to. If you are a guy you most likely have no interest in Pinterest.

Hi BOL crew,

I think this sums up pinterest perfectly:

http://ilovecharts.tumblr.com/post/16875898793/people-who-use-pinterest-i-dont-want-to-start

I have a Pinterest account and am female, but I just don’t get it. If I want to share something I find online with my friends, I do it on Facebook or Twitter. If I want to save something for later, I use instapaper. And if I want to mark something as “”to buy”" I do it on Amazon. I just don’t see how Pinterest fits in.

Love the show! Nicole

Hi Buzz Crew,

First, I’m a lady, so maybe what I have to say is not what you’re looking for, but I really like Pinterest. I’m planning a wedding, so I’m pulling together images of flowers and hairstyles that I really like to help with inspiration. I also like to find recipes, pottery (I’m a potter, so I like to see what other people are doing with their work), and other creative ideas through pinterest. But I can see where it’s a niche market for people with two X chromosomes. I do find it overwhelming at times and have trouble with self-curation. We’ll see how it changes as it develops.

As my fiance (who introduced me to BOL) said when he discovered I was on the site, “Bitches love Pinterest.” It’s true. Gloria
