Pinterest is a free website where users can upload, save, collect and manage images called pins from the internet into files known as boards. It is basically an online pin board like the one we all had in our rooms growing up. There is a website and a phone app so you do not have to always be near a computer to access it.
To begin you have to register, you can automatically register with an existing facebook or twitter account or create a new pinterest account. Once you have regiestered you can find friends to follow or you can follow famous pinterest accounts. You can also build up your own board by naming them and filling them up with pins. Boards such as recipes,motivational quotes,crafts ideas, dream cars, whatever you would want to share with the world. There are so numerous types of boards to follow on pinterest and there is no doubt you would find something to your liking.
When you do find an image you like, you can go ahead and click the red “Pin it” button to repin it unto a board which you have created. Also if you click on the image, website link is opened where additional information about the pin is located. You do not have to repin images you can follow people and boards, it all depends on what you want.
Pinterest is a fun and interesting way to express yourself and share information with friends. So why not join in on the fun and start pinning away.
