This year of 2015 will be the visual year on social media, all predictions say the videos will be king and Social Networks like Instagram or Pinterest will be having a lot of attention a growth.

Due to the huge amount of information we receive everyday our attention spawn is decreasing therefore is becoming harder to focus on long sources of information. People are reading less and want to consume faster their information. When was the last you watched a video on Youtube with more than 3 minutes length? Can you remember easily?

So that´s why that networks like Instagram and Pinterest are becoming so popular, people want to absorb fast and easily visual information. My last two posts were about Instagram, one for tools and another with great accounts to follow on 2015, so this time I decided to research on who´s doing amazingly well on Pinterest. There are a lot of great accounts to follow.

As more as I dig through this network as more interesting I find it, and I think there will be a lot more to come, or did you forget that Instagram is owned by  Facebook? One of Facebook´s motto is to be constantly improving, so expect more on Instagram and some of the improvements may come from these tools.

On these post there are two types of apps, the ones for your computer and the ones for your phone. Continue reading
