What is Pinterest?
There are so many social media websites, nowadays. However, there is a unique addition to this community- Pinterest. No one can deny the fact that Facebook and Twitter are much more popular than Pinterest. However, Pinterest is unique in its own way and it is a new website. This is a photo-sharing website that is based on pin boards. You can pin various images on your pin board such as images related to sports, food, animals, flowers, celebrities, products, television shows, books, or anything that you find interesting. It is all up to you. You can “like” and “re pin” others’ photos as well.
Advantages of using Pinterest
The advantage of Pinterest is that it allows you to connect with people who have the same interests as yours. This way you can also make new friends. With Pinterest, you can never feel bored. It is like a huge magazine for free. You can just sit there and enjoy all the photos on different pin boards. Pinterest users also have the option to share images (“pins”) on Twitter and Facebook. If you are a photographer, you can share your photographs on Pinterest, so that people around the world can view and appreciate your work. Painters can post photographs of their paintings. This will help boost up their confidence. Pinterest is also very beneficial for businesspersons. They can share photos of their products for maximum exposure.
