Are you a Pinterest user, or are you wondering ” What the heck is Pinterest”?
I’ve found that it’s very difficult to explain Pinterest to those who’ve never been on the site. I found this definition at Techopedia.com:
Definition – What does Pinterest mean?
Pinterest is a social media website that allows users to organize and share images and videos from around the Web. Images uploaded by users are called Pins and may be organized into Pin Boards, which can be customized, themed and followed by other users. Users can also Like or Repin content shared by other Pinners. Much like Twitter, any Pinner can follow another.
Pinterest represents a move toward more visual social media platforms. In October 2011, Pinterest received $27 million in venture capital funds.
