Social Media Outreach Coordinator, Sarah Fudin notes Pinterest is a new type of social media website that serves as a virtual bulletin board (or “pinboard”) where web content can be shared. This unique site is changing the way people share web content related to personal interests, using a design style that relies on images rather than text.

Pinterest members (referred to as “Pinners”) gather and share images of interesting things that they find online, creating “Pins.” Pinners can create multiple pinboards, each representing a collection of Pins that relate to a different interest or category.

The social aspect of Pinterest comes into play when Pinners browse each other’s pinboards or search for specific types of Pins. Pinners can find inspiration, share their interests and connect with like-minded people. According to the Pinterest mission statement, the company believes that “a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people.”

Pinterest’s rising popularity proves it as a new alternative for connecting people around the world based on shared tastes, styles and interests.

I found Sarah Fudin’s article to be very informative.  You can read the article in its entirety at http://www.careerealism.com/pinterest-help-career/
