What is Pinterest?

Pinterest. If you’re into internet marketing or social networking, chances are you’ve heard about this ‘thing’ that has been taking the internet by storm. It’s been on the news, on just about every forum, in your blog sharing options, and more than likely in your twitter and facebook feeds.

While, it’s still not the largest social network, those stats are nothing to ignore.  That still doesn’t answer the question. What IS it.

Pinterest is essentially a virtual cork board or user curated magazine (Depending on how you want to look at it). This means, Pinterest is an extremely visual site.

People ‘Pin’ their favorite things they find while surfing the web onto ‘pin boards’, which can be curated by any number of users.

That’s all that Pinterest is. It’s extremely simple to sign up, and extremely easy to use.
