Have You Found Pinterest Yet?

It seems to be a hot topic right now. It is what everyone is talking about. "Have you found Pinterest yet?" "Do you know about Pinterest?" "You have to check out Pinterest!"

What is Pinterest?
Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard where you can organize and share all the wonderful ideas that you find interesting or fun in your every day life. You create your own Boards, as many as you like, and title them however you want. You can "pin" wedding ideas, fashion ideas, photography ideas, recipes, the list is endless and as wide as your imagination.

Pinterest Vocabulary:
Pin -  A pin is an image with a link that you add to Pinterest via board. You can link from your own computer or from other websites.

You create a title for your board such as "My Fashion Ideas" - then you group together all the ideas that you want to keep for future reference or to share with others.

Repin - Once you pin something, it can then be repinned by other Pinterest users. You are viturally sharing your ideas with others.

Board - This is where you keep your pins. You can have as many boards as you want - put them in groups and you can tag others to be able to pin to your board.

Follow - You can follow other users or they can follow you. You can link to Facebook & Twitter, too.

Pinterest was actually created in 2009 but it wasn't until the past few months that Pinterest has become widespread and the talk of the web.

There is one word of warning when it comes to Pinterest - it is extremely addicting! Beware!!
