WHAT CAN WE DO ON IT? Pinterest is a content curating platform which allows users to organize
and share beautiful and interesting content they find on the web. Think of it as a bookmarking site, a social network, a gift finder and a platform for collaboration all rolled in to one. Content is organized in “Boards” that work as categories. Each piece of content is called a “Pin”
People can ‘like’ your pins or they can “repin” them on to their boards, comment on them and share on Facebook and Twitter. You can follow people and they can follow you. Or you can just follow a particular board of theirs rather than following all back.
"I was always collecting images on the web in folders on the desktop of my computer, but it wasnâ€™t a very good system for remembering where things came from or who made them. We wanted to create a place where you can go to upload or collect things on the web and simply organize it the way you want to.â€? - Evan Sharp, Pinterest Co-Founder and Designer
