Digital Sports Group today announced it was utilising the social media sensation for exclusive F1 driver car photos for teams such as Ferrari, Red Bull Racing, McLaren and Mercedes.
Pinterest is the social sharing site launched in 2010 which enables users to “pin,” “re-pin” and “like” images. The service has grown into one of the largest sites in the world and is now very widely used.
How does Pinterest work? Visitors can share images they find online, or they can directly upload images onto the football.co.uk Pinterest page. Using the Pin It button, they can share directly in their browser from any web page. User can also share their pins on other social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
Head of Operations at DSG Matthew Tait had this to say: “Pinterest is a great way to quickly organise and share news in picture form as well as group together some of the fantastic action shots we get. We have got the ball rolling with some pretty special photos from the Formula 1 Grand Prix season and will be looking to add to that over the coming months. We will be focusing on the drivers, cars and motor racing circuits so expect pins for Hamilton, Alonso, Ferrari’s and Mercedes all doing their thing at tracks like Silverstone, Monaco and Monza…Not a bad thing feast your eyes on!”
Simon Boynton, Managing Director of DSG, believes that the Pinterest page will help motorsport.co.uk reach another great audience. “There is no doubting that Pinterest has become an extremely valuable tool for organising and sharing inspirational photos of events, people and places. The Motorsport.co.uk Pinterest page is the perfect venue for F1 photos.”
Digital Sports Group are the official partners of the PFA and publish sites such as football.co.uk, sport.co.uk and the Footymad network.
