What is Pinterest?


Pinterest is a social network that allows users to post and share images and videos.

Billed as a ‘catalogue of ideas’ by CEO Ben Silbermann, Pinterest is a free website which users need to register for in order to use. Images are known as ‘pins’, while the act of posting an image to a board is known as ‘pinning’. Pinterest allows users to upload, save, sort and manage images through collections known as pinboards.
