I’m sure many of you have heard about the website, “Pinterest.com.” A lot of people use it but there are still many people who don’t know what it is. Let me inform you!
Pinterest is an online database with thousands of pictures. The pictures are divided up into different sections depending on what they deal with. Different sections like, food, apparel, travel, home decor, DYI, education, fitness, and a lot more.
What Do You Do?
People upload pictures and then other people can see them. When you see a picture you want to save, you “repin” it. The picture is then moved to one of your virtual “pin boards.” You can have as many pin boards as you would like and post as many pictures to those boards as you want. I have pin boards that I’ve named, “outfit ideas,” “one day,” “yummy,” “nails,” “hair styles,” and the list could go on.
You can also click on the pictures because they have embedded links that will take you to where you can find more information about the picture. For example, there are tons of pictures of different meals. When you see something you like, you can click on the picture and it will take you to a website that gives you the recipe on how to make that meal. It’s pretty awesome!
Also, you can buy things on Pinterest too. There is a tab called “gifts” near the top of the page and you can choose the price range you want to view pictures from. On the top left side corner of each picture, it will tell how much the item costs.
Another Type of Social Media!
Let me also mention that you can follow your friends on Pinterest too. You can send pictures to them and comment on pictures they upload. You can even sync your Pinterest account with Facebook or Twitter and they will find your friends for you! Simple, easy, and loads of fun.
If this post hasn’t inspired you to set up a Pinterest account, something is clearly wrong with you! If it has, I warn you that it can be very addicting but who cares, it’s so much fun!
If you have any other questions about Pinterest, let me know! I would love to answer them for you.
