If not, hurry up and learn more about it! Pinterest is an online “pin board” where you can share pictures, ideas, and other things. You can also browse other boards to get design ideas, learn about products, or just see what your friends have been up to.

Pinterest seems to have really struck it good designers whether it is computers, clothing, decor, furniture, interior design, etc. Designers have really taken to Pinterest and it is growing rapidly.

“A pin is an image added to Pinterest. A pin can be added from a website using the Pin It button, or you can upload images from your computer. Each pin added using the Pin It button links back to the site it came from.”

You can look at it as a mix between Flickr and Facebook. You will find a lot of commonalities between them but Pinterest is definitely the up and coming (if it already isn’t here) social media platform.
