Pinterest is a social discovery app that’s available on the web and mobile devices as well, people all around the globe can use this service to discover, collect, share, and store images for free. However, free storage and image sharing is definitely not what the site is all about, its true objective is to “discover and save ideas on Pinterest” so that you can use them later to find inspiration for your own projects.
After creating an account you can pin any image that you want to save on the web or right there on Pinterest.com. Pins are basically visual bookmarks, they are better known as “Pin Boards”, and the best thing about them is that you can add anything you want to your boards by pinning images you like. Once you’ve gathered enough images, you can proceed to organize them however you want. Keep in mind that “Pins” can be organized by theme or topic, so make sure to create well thought out pin boards that allow users to easily find what they’re looking for, that way you’ll get more followers, and you will also help improve the site’s experience for users.
