CBC People on Pinterest

If you're not yet familiar with/addicted to, get ready. According to it's quickly grown to be the third most popular social network in the U.S., right after Facebook and Twitter. 

I recently introduced the social site to Steven and Chris on their show. It allows you to "pin" images from any website, then organize and share them - which is essentially the digital, more social, more awesome version of tearing out pages from a magazine and pinning them to a board. Check out the clip to learn more about why we love it and how to use it:

CBC on Pinterest

Steven and Chris immediately signed up to Pinterest and are creating great lifestyle boards, like a collection of "Food + Recipes", "DIYs" and "Home Decor". We love their taste in just about everything, so we look forward to what they have to share.

See all their boards


George Stroumboulopoulos has been pinning away as well. The tastemaker shares everything from his favourite "Street Art" to images of his favourite "Music & Rekkids" to pics from "The Road" and backstage photos. He's mentioned a little bit of insomnia many times on his shows, so we expect him to be a very prolific pinner.

Hockey Night in Canada is pinning through the playoffs. We love their fun and quirky boards, like "Don Cherry: Sharp-dressed Man", "Playoff Beards" and "Celebrity Sightings at NHL Games".

See all their boards.


CBC Music is curated by some pretty cool people and we like their "Canadiana" and "Neil Young" boards and we can't wait to see more artwork from their own awesome designers in their "From" board.
