Google Just Turned Gmail Into Pinterest
Gmail’s new-ish tabbed inbox offers the mechanized convenience of sorting all of your solicitations—your Groupons and Gap coupons—into one pile away from your more important email. Right now, that pile—called the Promotions Tab—looks like any other tower of email. But in a new Gmail update, Google has transformed the design from list to Pinterest, with a grid of minimal white cards driven by prominent photos (along with a corporate logo, one-line summary, and the option to star or trash the deal).

Wow, that’s actually a good idea.

I find it more interesting that man-culture would feel the need to carve out a corner of the social networking sandbox at all, when the Internet is such an expansive beach of dude. The Web was laid on a foundation of porn, built with walls of lewd jokes, shingled on top with the discussion strains of a Reddit board.
Washington Post Reporter Monica Hesse • Debating the validity of a site called Dudepins, which is — you guessed it — an attempt to build Pinterest for men. Dudepins isn’t so much the male-oriented Pinterest as the 2004-era Spike TV version of Pinterest, a version of Pinterest so obsessed with mandom that it looks like it’s trying too hard, to the point where non-manly things are taken down. While growth is happening quickly, according to its owners, we’d like to offer up an anecdote from a movie that’s decidedly not manly, “Mean Girls”: “Stop trying to make fetch happen!”

Francisco Guerrero, founder of Pinterest analytics site, Pintics, which we introduced to you in March says that he’s more than happy to offer her a position with them. Pointing out Jeanne’s Pinterest CV to The Next Web, Francisco told us, “Based on this she totally should at least get a call from Pinterest.” He also told us, if she doesn’t, she now has the option of becoming the Vice President of Marketing at Pintics. So if you’re tuning in Jeanne – get in touch with Pintics on Twitter, as you might have just landed yourself a job! (via Pinterest User Turns a Pinterest Board into a CV)

OK, who’s gonna be the first person to create a resume using Tagged?

Spotted in DC today: Local salad chain Sweetgreen turned the front of its still-under-construction new location into a giant Pinterest board. They’re more clever than we are. (photo by Ernie @ SFB)

Are tasty dessert pictures worth billions of dollars to Pinterest?
Are these pictures of desserts worth $7.7 billion? TheStreet.com, Jim “Mad Money” Cramer’s Web site, seems to think so: “Facebook values Instagram at $1 billion and LinkedIn has a market cap of $10 billion. Twitter claims it is worth $8 billion. So where does that leave the new kid on the block Pinterest? Well, it looks like you can pin $7.7 billion on your Pinterest board.” The site claims that the site’s soaring traffic places it in the upper echelon of social media valuations. But don’t get too crazy yet. Mashable reports that the exponential growth TheStreet sites may be slowing. Uh, it might be a little early to trust this.
