Pinterest is a website for social photo sharing. Users pin photos to themed base boards that others can view. The purpose of Pinterest is to connect people through the things that they find interesting. For instance if you like graphic design, you can go to the graphic design base board and find countless photos pertaining to this. You can also pin your own photos to this board. The whole point is to find people who have similar interests and share with them. Pins can be shared through both Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter.
Pinterest and Business
Businesses can use Pinterest to share ideas with people interested in their specific field. This will gain said business the recognition it wants from the necessary people. Pinterest also allows different boards to be searched under specific categories. By listing your business under its respective category, it is more likely that people searching this category will find it. If you don’t specifically list you business, it won’t be found by your audience right away. Pinterest users also have the ability to add their Pinterest button to various websites. Add your Pinterest button to your webpage and to your Facebook page, giving users the chance to see your pins as well as other information. Be sure to have interesting pins on your board and update regularly to keep people coming back!
