What is Pinterest? 

‚Äč

Pinterest is a virtual cork board where you can pin up ideas and things that inspire you. Pinterest differs from other social media platforms because its about sharing ideas and inspiring people to create, think and do. Pinterest CEO Ben Silbermann refers to it as "the world's greatest catalog of ideas."

Pinterest allows you to follow people, organizations or subjects that you like. For instance, you could search 'DIY' and it will pop up with numerous things to look through. If you like one of the ideas, you can 'pin' it to a 'board'. You can also share ideas with others.
