Just like Facebook and Twitter before it, Pinterest is garnering a ton of attention from individuals and businesses alike.
So what is Pinterest? It is essentially a site that allows you to pin images of your likes, dislikes, interests etc. to an online “board”. The images can be linked directly to various websites as well.
Users can “re-pin” other users pins from one online board to another, thus sharing the content and website links quickly and efficiently.
This clever little comic we found online illustrates it quite nicely.
