What is Pinterest?


 PINTEREST –What is Pinterest?

Staying on top of the latest social media sites is a full time job! I am a little leary of jumping

What is Pinterest

on every new site and wait for it to demonstrate that is has something unique to offer and some ‘staying’ power.

Along comes Pinterest.

Unique – no words – just images

Staying power – it has hit a cord with millions!   (There were about 120, 000 users about a year ago and today there are over 6 millions users!)

What is Pinterest?  Pinterest is nothing more than a virtual bulletin board where you can display and organize all the awesomes images you find while browsing.

Find a great idea for decorating your house – pin it on your  ‘home decorations’ board.
Find some fab shoes for an outfit – pin them on your ‘wish list’ or ‘shoe board’.
Find that dream vacation pic – pin it on your ‘Wish I was There!’ board.

I can tell you that it is addictive!

What is a Pin?

A pin is simply any image/photo/pic you add to your Pinterest account.

You can add a ‘pin’ from a website or from you computer.

A great way to get started is to peruse some of the boards on Pinterest and re-pin images that you like.

Let’s say that you are interested in wreaths. Just enter the term ‘wreath’ in the search on the Pinterest home page and you will find more pictures on a variety of wreaths than you can imagine.  Scroll through and simple click on the images that you like and re-pin them to a relevant board.

You will want to install a ‘Pin It” button on your browser  to make it easy to pin images you find while browsing the web. (Just go to the “Goodies” page and find instructions specific for you browser.)
