Have you discovered Pinterest yet? Pinterest is a social media site that allows you to "pin" images and videos that you find around the internet onto a virtual pinboard. You can then share your pins with others. You create "boards" according to your interests. For example, if you are planning a wedding, you could pin all of the wedding ideas that you find onto your Wedding board.
Pinterest allows you to browse other users' pins according to topics such as Popular, Art, Education, Food and Drink and much more. When you visit another person's pinboard, you can like, comment on or repin their pins. You also have the option to follow that person or one of his boards.
