Seriously though, according to Wikipedia, Pinterest is a pinboard-style social photo sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, hobbies and more. Users can browse other pinboards for inspiration, 're-pin' images to their own collections and/or 'like' photos. Pinterest's mission is to "connect everyone in the world through the 'things' they find interesting" via a global platform of inspiration and idea sharing. Pinterest allows its users to share 'pins' on both Twitter and Facebook, which allows users to share and interact with a broad community.
So basically, rather than tearing out magazine pages of the things you love and saving them in judiciously organized binders… Or carefully copying the recipes you want to try into your cookbook… Or even keeping those messy folders of poorly titled favorites at the top right-hand corner of your internet browser, you can simply use Pinterest. Pinterest allows you to organize all the things you love via pictures, which neatly link back to their source, to enjoy whenever you like, as well as, share them with all your friends and online family (and you check out all the cool things they like too).
We have to say, we’re very impressed with Pinterest… Not just with how simple it is to use, but how practical it is in this digital, go- green, social age and especially with how remarkable all the things people pin are! We have seen some stunning photography, great DIY ideas, trendy fashions, and so much more! Well we are not going to let all this awesomeness pass us by!! We have launched our own Pinterest page to share the great things that we love. Stop on by for a visit and let’s pin! Need an invite?
