What is Pinterest?
Do you use Pinterest?
Pinterest is a social network in which users can load, save, sort, edit and manage images through pins, and other multimedia content (such as video) collecting them in message boards. These board are a sort of “containers“. The contents that are manipulated by users can be browsed on the main page. Then users can save individual “pin” using the “Pin it” button (it’s the same case of Twitter, in which users send a “tweet” of their status) on message boards typically organized into themes.
So the pins can be easily classified and searched by other users. Contents can also be found outside of Pinterest and loaded in a similar way with the “Pin it button“.
In addition, Pinterest can be integrated with other social networks, like Facebook and Twitter, and Flickr and the Web sites.
