Farming and Facebook (or Pinterest)
A great piece in Flying Kite, about Philadelphia flower farmer Jenny Love, and her use of social media. She especially uses Pinterest, and I thought her ability to predict trends with the site was facinating: Love turns to Pinterest to identify trends and pays close attention to the metrics of her own boards and blog to better understand market demands.
