What is Pinterest?
Pinterest is a site that lets you create virtual pin boards. By uploading your own images or re-pinning other people’s images, you create themed boards. Some common Pinterest board themes: Weddings, Home, Fashion, Hair, Nails, Travel, Food.
In addition to creating your own boards you can follow other users or a subset of their boards. When you see an image you like or want to remember you can pin that back to your own board. Learn how to get started after the jump.
