Mayor Launches Pinterest Page

February 5, 2015

Mayor Greg Fischer has launched a new social media channel, by starting a Pinterest account that will share with the world his vision of Louisville.

“In the changing media landscape, we have to make sure that we’re pushing the story of Louisville through every available channel,” Fischer said.

With 70 million active users, Pinterest is an increasingly influential social media market, with powerful referral and search engine potential.

In the seven “boards” on the mayor’s page so far, photos capture the beauty of Louisville’s neighborhoods and landmarks, its diversity of people and manufacturing products, and its top attractions.

More boards will be added over time and more “pins” will be added to the existing boards.

The mayor’s username is “LouisvilleMayor” and the page can be found at
