What is Pinterest?Pinterest is a new sharing website. The website is found at www.pinterest.com and allows you to post images, share images, group images, and comment on other people’s images. It is just like making a memory book – you just do it online and share it with your friends. Pinterest allows you to create a page full of images, quotes, and pictures based on the things you like. The difference is that your photos and images are shared online and you can “pin” these items onto “boards”. Basically, that means you place your images into your favorite categories where they can viewed together.
