Pinterest is a popular bookmark-esque sharing website. It allows you to save links from around the web in to boards - customized categories you can create. Whether it's ideas for a wedding, home renovations, or D.I.Y. design, Pinterest has something for everyone. You can even pin places to visit on your next vacation. To get started using Pinterest, you need to sign up for a free account. When you have completed the registration process, you can start uploading and saving pins to your boards. The boards you create are up to you and can be shared with other Pinterest users, or kept private. The variety of ideas to pin on Pinterest can leave you spending a considerable amount of time in the app. This is helped by the massive community behind Pinterest, as well as some sites offering the Pin It button. This button, much like Facebook's Share button, allows users to submit content to Pinterest with ease. You can also choose to add the latest pin to one or more boards on your account. It should be noted that not all pins are created equal. Rich Pins offer more information on pins to help you be better informed on the content in the pin. Rich pins can outline if it is an app, a recipe, or a product you can buy through Pinterest. More rich pin types are available and are often usable with other social sharing sites like Twitter and Facebook. Pinterest is a free to use app, which only requires you to register an account to use. You are able to create an account using your Facebook account if you wish to. Be sure to have plenty of time on your hands too, as the site can be very addictive once you get pinning!
