With accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Google+, Foursquare and Instagram, President Obama is one of the most tech-savvy politicians.
The latest notch in his social media belt is Pinterest, the social network of choice for scrapbooking soccer moms and hip, young brides-to-be…
Run by Obama's 2012 campaign, the page features eight different boards of varying genres. The Obama-inspired recipes board includes the Obama family chili recipe as well as a couple of pictures of Obama-themed cupcakes…
There's also a board with merchandise for the campaign… and another that lists facts about the campaign and things the president has accomplished during his term.
The president is certainly a rarity on Pinterest — not only are there very few male users of the site, there are no other candidates with a presence on the online pinboard — unless you count the fake Mitt Romney site. The GOP hopeful's wife, however, joined the site last month.
Yup, no better way to win over those crucial blue-collar swing-state men than a few expertly curated photos of cupcakes and puppies. That's exactly what those former steel and auto workers are clamoring for.
I'm not saying Pinterest is a girly site, but congressional Republicans just tried to ban federal funding for it.
