Barbara Sharief Announces Publication of New Pinterest Page to Promote Broward County

(Fort Lauderdale) September 26, 2017

A Pinterest page is many things: a reflection of one’s passions, an exhibition of one’s creativity, and a way to connect with people through mutual interests. For Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief, Pinterest is all of these things and more. The Mayor recently published a new page devoted to Broward County, it’s history, it’s sites, and it’s many colorful characters.

Mayor Sharief explains her motivations for joining the popular social media platform:

“As Mayor of Broward County it is my duty to reach out to residents from all walks of life and to promote the many eclectic, elegant and state-of-the-art businesses in our communities. Pinterest presents me with a fun and approachable platform to show the public the restaurants I love, the places I love and the people I love.”

Barbara Sharief’s Pinterest page features a variety of fascinating photos and images from the far reaches of Broward County and across Fort Lauderdale. The boards on the site include such topics as Broward restaurants, Broward history, Broward celebrities, Broward fashion, historic homes, and many more. The images are complete with titles and, in many cases, short notes about their history.

Social Media has become a larger part of the lives and careers of many public figures, from actors and athletes to politicians and musicians. For Barbara Sharief, Pinterest is a platform, an avenue to promote and tout the benefits and joys of life in Broward’s communities, from Deerfield Beach to Tamarac and Pompano Beach. With its rich array of transplants, natives and seasonal tourists, Broward County is one of Florida’s most economically vibrant and culturally enriched counties.
