Pinterest

Pinterest is a social network where you can visually share and find new interests by publishing photos or videos to your own or others’ boards and viewing what other users have pinned. You can also engage by following other users and liking and commenting on posts, much like you might on Facebook or Instagram. Aside from that, you can save other people’s images to your boards and send private messages to those who share your interests.

Pinterest also allows companies to create images to engage customers. Colorful infographics and visual media that highlight promotions, new items, and more may increase the website’s traffic and revenues. As part of the marketing strategy, businesses and shopping websites may use this increase to sell their goods and services and build their user base.

You can create an account, log in, and either like other people’s posts or start your own. The social network is very much centered on the notion of a person’s lifestyle, using a visual orientation, enabling you to share your likes and interests with others and find those of like-minded individuals.
