What is Pinterest?• Pinterest allows you to see 100 photos or videos on the screen at one time and share them in an instant. It’s a social bookmarking site and electronic bulletin board all rolled into one that takes seconds to find and share things.• Follow people (or specific boards) with similar tastes and they can follow you back.• It allows users to “pin” images and video to a virtual bulletin board they create.• A user then shares that pin with their friends, who can then like or repin it to their boards.• The primary purpose is to share your interests with friends through images and video.• Ability to post images of your company’s products on your Pinterest board and link them back to your website. It works as a sort of virtual store catalog.• But remember that this is social media. If you simply display images of your products without contributing other content or sharing other users’ pins, you’ll likely find that people don’t pay much attention
