Social Media Tips for Travel
Be a Chairman of the Board
As my crowdsourced recommendations piled up, I needed a way to organize everything, so I logged in to Pinterest and created a Portland board. I’d asked around for the best cafés that serve mochas, but in a city that takes its coffee seriously, there was no way I could keep them straight: Stumptown Coffee, Barista, Ristretto Roasters, Extracto, Heart, and Public Domain. What was the difference? With my mouse, I hovered over each latte-art photo that I found on Pinterest, hitting “repin” to save them to my Portland board. I also filled my board with photos of recommended restaurants, hotels, and sights. The result: a photo-based black book with everything I wanted to do and see in Portland.
