How many websites do you visit in a day’s span?  Getting sick of your browsing routine?  Looking for a new idea whether it’s in the garage, in the computer lab, at the garden or in the kitchen?

Pinterest is a website for sharing creative recipes, crafty ideas, tips, tools, and images that you and your friends find online.  The site promotes the idea of sharing mutual interests between you, your friends, and family with hopes to drum up site traffic that’s relevant based on new interests.

By “pinning” photos, you save them to your online profile so that you and others can view them later.  You can also setup your images into custom categories.  From there, your friends and family can jump on the band wagon to re-pin what you’ve shared which gives the site hosting the initial content greater exposure which yields a higher potential of site visitors based on new interests.

Additionally, friends can follow and pin ideas from websites that they enjoy based on common interest which will appear in your pinterest feeds.

Imagine a gourmet cook sharing their new recipe with an attached picture.  Hungry yet?  Regardless if you are or not, perhaps you see this recipe and like the idea… You can simply hover over the image, and press “pin” once logged in.  From there, you can also hyper-integrate the site to tie into your social profiles such as twitter and facebook.   Artists and big corporations alike are jumping aboard pinterest as greater exposure leads to a higher volume of site visits based on what the site provides.  Start pinning today and see what the excitement is all about.
