I love sharing off the beat news from my former homeland... good luck at the #eurovision2015  PKN!
 
The Eurovision contest isn't until May, but Finland is already getting into the news.  As usual, it's not because anybody thinks Finland will win (after all, they changed the voting rules after the one time Finland did win), but because the Finnish entry is a bit unusual.

As always.

Another reason to prefer Google+?
Another study links Facebook to mental health woes. But this one actually keys into the mechanism.

How to Build Your Brand with Pinterest

Ready to stop the random pinning and get serious about building your brand on Pinterest? Let’s look at ways that you can turn your passions into actions and build your brand one pin at a time.

In this article I’ll share how to create a strong presence on Pinterest and create a visual brand that attracts your ideal audience. First let’s tackle WHY you should be on Pinterest and then we’ll look at the benefits of Pinterest.

Why your brand should be on Pinterest

Pinterest is a discovery engine where people get inspired, find ideas, and connect with you and your pins through shared ideas and visuals. When you create your Pinterest profile and boards, you’re building a visual portfolio of the things that you love and inspire you.

You can build a solid social media presence on Pinterest by creating a portfolio of Pinterest boards that:

• Share who you are
• Build your expertise
• Connect with others that share your passions
• Entertain
• Inspire
