What Is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a social site that is more of a tool for sharing the things and ideas that you love. Think of it as creating a vision board or a visual scrapbook. You can add images, articles, videos, links and whatever else you want (referred to as pins) to a virtual board.

People use Pinterest for a number of things. You can use it to plan a project. Pin pictures of the things you would like to include in the project. Have friends and family members comment on your ideas, or repin the ones that they like to their own boards.

Showcase items on your boards that speak to who you are and what your values are. If you are big into saving the environment, use Pinterest boards to let others know what projects you are working on or to highlight socially conscious companies.

Reach people from all walks of life with similar interests. Comment on the other boards and find images to enhance your own work.
