Are you using Pinterest for Private Practice?
is an great tool for sharing resources, articles, and recommendations among colleagues and with clients. As a professional who is new to social media it can be difficult to know where to start.
Fortunately, Pinterest is one of the fastest growing social media platforms and by far the easiest to use. For therapists concerned with dual relationships, or boundary concerns with clients, Pinterest's limited messaging (now) and commenting functions make it easier to use as a resource sharing forum rather than an interactive setting (like twitter or Facebook).
Pinterest images have helped my site be found through google image search in addition to my other SEO maximizing efforts.
And for me, it is the easiest and most fun to use.
Check out the great example boards to see a few colleagues who are sharing useful content on Pinterest.
