Pinterest, An Interesting Probably Addictive Social Site You Should Try

Facebook, The gram ( Instagram), Twitter, Snapchat(depending on your age) and WhatsApp are the most popular social sites in these parts of the world. While we all have our preferences( Instagram is mine) we sometimes forgot the existence of other platforms.

Ever Heard Of Pinterest?

Well apart from FB, Twitter and Instagram and Snapchat, Have you heard about Pinterest?

Pinterest is a social network where people can find inspiration and ideas for their interests and hobbies

Every idea is called a pin. Businesses or individuals sign up for Pinterest, create an account, list the type of business they do and just like any social media network start to post pins and get to interact with other people on the network, be it, customers, friends or fans.

Pinterest is more of an idea-sharing or idea selling platform with the sole purpose of sharing or selling ideas to other patrons on the platform. Ideas are sold using photos mainly or links to another site just like Facebook. I would definitely call Pinterest Facebook on steroids.
