About Pinterest:

Pinterest is a catalog of ideas that inspires users to “go out and do that thing.” It is a collection of things that you store by gathering from the web. You can upload, save, and enjoy different collections. And also you can organize all the information that you collect. Every collection you made can be pinned to a pinboard, which is called pin, which can be shared with other users. Pinterest helps users discover various hacks and fresh ideas, learn about brands and products, create personal portfolios, and offers many more tangible benefits. It allows businesses to create pages aimed at promoting their business online.
