What is Pinterest?

 

Pinterest is basically a online pinboard. It is used to save and organize ideas that you find on the internet. Pinterest allows you to follow other peoples pin boards and re-pin something of theirs that you like. It allows you to browse different boards, ideas, and categories to create a board of your own. You can organize all of your findings on different boards that you can choose the names of. The goal of this site is to collect and organize ideas you will be able to come back to in the future. Pinterest is used by many people for different reasons such as education, pleasure, and business. Pinterest is growing at a rapid rate and will continue growing in the future.
