WHAT IS PINTEREST AND WHAT CAN WE DO WITH IT

Pinterest

Simply put, Pinterest is a tool for collecting and organizing the things you love and the things that inspire you.

Every time you browse the www (World Wide Web) you come across something beautiful and useful you do not want to forget. And you either e-mail it to yourself, instantly print it out or you bookmark it on your computer so that you do not lose it.

Today there is a simple way to collect all of the great things you find online: Pinterest!

Pinterest, as the name suggests, is an online pin board driven entirely by visuals. In fact, you cannot share something on Pinterest unless an image is involved. From favorite music to DIY (Do It Yourself) ideas to favorite destinations or food, there are no limitations on Pinterest, as long as you bear in mind that other people are reading your pins.

Pinterest is a website that allows you to “pin” things online, just as you would pin them on a real life noticeboard.

And the best thing is that Pinterest saves all of your pins on your account so that you can access them easily whenever you want.

Like every other social media site, Pinterest has its own expressions:

  •  Pin: The things you share on Pinterest;
  • Repin: Someone else’s pin you share on Pinterest;
  • Pinboard: The pins you group together by topic in your profile.

Here some of the things you can do with Pinterest and never be bored:

  • Pin things you like

A pin starts with an image or video you add to Pinterest. You can add a pin sharing an images you find online from a website using the Pin It button or directly upload an image right from your computer.

  • Repin things you like

When you visit Pinterest you can see other people’s interests and pins and you have the option to repin the ones you like. All pins are with links to their original source.

  • Create a Board

A board is where you organize your pins by topic. For example, you could pin ideas for shoes and new models of shoes to your Favorite Shoes board. Boards can be secret or public and you can invite other people to pin with you on any of your boards.

When you follow someone, their pins show up in your Pinterest home feed. You can follow all of someone’s boards or just the ones you like best. To manage who you’re following, go to your profile and click Following.

  • Have a Home Feed

Your home feed is a collection of pins from pinners and boards you follow. It’s updated every time someone you follow adds a pin.
