As more parents are using the Internet to answer their questions, Extension needs to provide practical, research-based resources in an accessible format online. Pinterest is a social content discovery and curation website that Extension Educators can use to provide continued education and make reputable resources more discoverable for parents. Based on Knowles adult learning theory and user demographics, University of Minnesota Extension Center for Family Development (ECFD) piloted a Pinterest account in August 2013. Based on the pilot, we have provided recommendations for other Extension Educators to develop and maintain a Pinterest page for educational purposes.
