Michelle Obama Joins Pinterest

Michelle Obama joined Pinterest on Wednesday and used the burgeoning social network to post photos of her life with the President and the First Family. While Pinterest has typically been a network for people to share other people’s content, it makes sense for celebrities to use it as a place to post their own images and let those images be shared easily by fans around the world. Her profile has already accrued 15,613 followers as of the time of this writing and that number is quickly growing.

So far, the First Lady has 16 pins in three pin boards, “Around the White House”, “Great Memories” and “Father’s Day”. The photos all seem to be fairly professional, and it doesn’t look like there are any candid photos posted at this time.  We’ll be watching the site to see how it goes for Mrs. Obama, but why not head over there and take a look in the meantime.
