What is Pinterest you ask? It’s a social networking site, basically a virtual pin board for all of your loves. “Pin” and “interest” the title pretty much spells it out. The way it works is, you have a “Pin It” button in your bookmarks bar, when you see something you like, you click in the button. The image can be from anywhere websites, blogs, online magazines, other Pinterest members. You create boards for all different types of categories and voila you have instant image organization! Some use it for a virtual bulletin board, a Web-based scrapbook, and Pinterest has been very popular for wedding planning. It works great for whatever your interests are. Especially niche interest where you can gather more info. More and more companies will be jumping on board. Pinterest, in less then two years, is already one of the most popular social networks in the world, as measured by engagement, according to data from comScore, via BI Intelligence.
