The Dating Game -- Catholic Pinterest Board of the Week


Follow CatholicPinner on Twitter

This week’s board of the week had me the minute I set eyes on this pin (I dare you not to look). The team over at Ave Maria Singles have all kinds of terrific boards over at Pinterest, but my favorite is their board called “The Dating Game“. From popular memes with a Catholic twist to witty one liners, the pins are highly “re-pinnable”, which makes them a perfect tool in the New Evangelization. If you know a single friend — whether or not they are Catholic — be sure to recommend that they follow Ave Maria Singles on Pinterest.

And here’s this week’s tip of the week from Allison Girone of the Catholic Pinterest Group Board who has kindly agreed to offer a weekly pointer for us on how to use some best practices to enjoy and effectively employ Pinterest:

IHashtags are for Pinterest, too. In your Pinterest descriptions add hashtags. Think of what words would I use if I were trying to find this pin? Then, put the # in front of those words for search engine optimization. (SEO) You can use those same hashtags in the top left corner search bar to find pins of interest. Find and be found.

If you’re a Catholic using Pinterest, please drop a link in the comments below to share your boards. Also, I’d love to hear about why you love Pinterest and how you think this latest craze might be used to spread the Good News.

  1. Love Pinterest. It’s where I get some of my best ideas. Whether I used them as they are or build off the idea, Its helped me greatly in finding ideas to teach my Religious Education Class.
    Pinterest has seem to become very popular and with it being such a visual tool , I could see this being helpful in evangalization because people can see the message on their computers, iPhones and whatever mobile device they have.
    I have my own, which is a more educational Pinterest board. Its my place I go to when I can’t come up with an idea on my own and had helped others too.
