Social Media review - PINTEREST

What is Pinterest?

Their tagline: "A place to organize and share things you love"

It's a visual bulletin board for your personal use.

How many times do you google something or find a website you want to remember, or find a great idea or product online, and you want to put that info. somewhere so you can easily find it again? Pinterest is a place to
store links to all of these. You set up visual boards, create categories
that are of interest to you, and pin an image on your board that links
to the source. It's a vast shared bulletin board for public use.
It's a place to share and obtain new ideas from the growing community of other Pinterest users. All pins and boards are public. You and your friends can follow each other's boards, and you can search the entire Pinterest network for others who have pinned topics of interest to you.
