Published on

Pinterest is a content sharing service that allows members to "pin" images, videos and other objects to their pinboard. It is a tool for collecting and organizing things you love. Users can create and manage themes-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. I have in my board's images of coffee, home offices, virtual assistant stuff among others. Because I am somewhat of a visual learner, I am personally enjoying Pinterest.
