Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. It's a social networking and social publishing site based on photos and videos.
Each photo or video is called a "pin." Pins can be grouped into "boards," which are sets of pins focused on a specific topic. Pinterest can be accessed by adding the "Pin it" button to the desktop bookmark bar, "Pin it" buttons added to personal website or blog pages, and the Pinterest iPhone application.
Here's the Business Communication Pictorial Gallery on Pinterest. Each item pinned to a board can then be clicked on to open into a larger picture of the item as well which includes a comment section that allows visitors to create discussions. Each pin can also be liked and/or re-pinned to a board on the visitor's Pinterest profile.
Initially, Pinterest was used for digital scrapbooking as people shared pictures which included almost anything from recipes to cute animals. As Pinterest became more popular, the sharing became more organized ,and creativity began to reveal some amazing things you can do on this site.
The versatility of Pinterest became clear and as new features were incorporated, the platform only became more powerful. Businesses are now incorporating and distributing brand images with messages on Pinterest.
