Pinterest was created in December 2009 by Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra and Evan Sharp. It is a platform where people go to get ideas and ignite their inspiration. It exposes people to new discoveries about the things they are interested in which could be images, texts, GIFS or videos about several things they are interested in such as ideas for home décor, designs, hairstyles, and building structures and many more.
Users of Pinterest can browse through the platform to find ‘pins’ – a pin is an image that is linked from a website or uploaded on Pinterest. Users can also see pins from other people or boards they are following or they can choose to create their own pins by uploading the pins from their devices or from the images they find online. Pins can also be saved or users can learn more about a pin by clicking on the link attached to a pin which will take them to a website where they can learn more about the pin. There is also an option to ‘try a pin’ that allows users who must have tried the idea they got from Pinterest to show others on Pinterest how it went. The sharing feature on Pinterest allows users to send pins to their friends or a group.
Users can also create boards and arrange their boards how they want. Board is where pins that have the same theme are categorized and organized by users. You can also organize your pins on your board by creating board ‘sections’ and also personalize your board however you want it to be. Boards can also be used to make schedules, plan or add notes or reminders. If you want to keep your board secret, users can decide to make their boards secret and only let those they invite to see their secret boards. Users can also follow people’s boards and also have them follow their boards.
Pinterest can be downloaded on devices such as Android or iOS devices.
