That is why more people are signing up in this unique website because of its features. If you are one of the people who are thinking to join, here are the basic facts about Pinterest.
Pinterest can be defined as it is – ‘pin your interest.’ It is a site where you can pin the images or even videos that interest you and share it to your online friends. You will also get to have your own profile page with all the pinned images or videos in it. You can even categorize them into albums to better organize your thoughts.

If you need to search for that particular image, just go back to you profile by clicking your name at the upper right part of the screen. Now, click the ‘Pins’ options where it leads you to all your pinned
images from recent to older ones. If you already organized your images, then your ‘Boards’ will appear. With that, you can search your pins and organize them further.
