If you’re the type of person who loves images, collects pictures, takes photography — you’ll love Pinterest.
Here’s the official word:
What is Pinterest? Pinterest is a social catalog service. Think of it as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can post collections of things you love, and “follow” collections created by people with great taste.
How do I add a pin? You can upload a file using the Add a Pin button in the menu bar. It’s a special button that lets you pin images from any website.
What is ‘repinning’? Repinning re-posting a pin to your own collection. When you repin we credit the person who first pinned the item. We let you see all the different collections a pin is part of.
If you need a photo to add to your article, you can take one from here and repin it to your site and the original owner will get the credit.
When you find photos that you want to keep, pin them to your board. Pretty neat, huh? I’m just beginning but you can check mine out here.
To join you need an invitation from an existing member. Let me know if you’re interested in joining and I’ll send an invite. It’s a whole new world out there!
