What is Pinterest you might ask? Jody Victor® wanted to know what it is. Here is what he found out:
Pinterest calls itself a “Virtual Pinboard“.
You can make a board and categorize the objects. You can have followers: people who like your pins may decide to follow you to track your pins. You can put an icon on the top of your browser and while surfing the web, you can click it on a page with a picture you like and you have a pin. You must be logged into Pinterest at the time to use it. If there’s a pin on someone else’s board that you like and want to put on yours, you can “repin” it. You can also “like” a pin.
Even counselors are using Pinterest according to this article in Wired, Jody Victor has found. Also there have been people that used it to plan a big event, like a wedding. You can pin the items that catch your eye so you don’t forget them.
