Pins can include captions, like "A great way to reuse a coffee creamer bottle."• Repin: Once something is pinned, it can then be repinned by other Pinterest users. This is how content spreads virally. If you see something you like on, repin it to share it with your friends.• Board: This is where your pins live. You can have separate boards for subjects such as a wedding, rooms in your house or favorite recipes.

If it finds that kind of link, itsecretly adds an affiliate code that ensuresPinterest will make some cash from sales thatderive from that link.
