Registration is required on Pinterest. You can sign up with your email address, a desired password, and age. Or, if you would prefer, you can use your Facebook or Google account to create an account. The website allows you to discover information on the Internet, mainly photos, videos, or GIFs and share it to your profile for others to see. A “Pin” is the image that you have uploaded directly or from a website. Pins can be saved to or from someone else’s board, which is called repinning. Boards are a collection of pins and usually have a theme. Exploring is the feature that allows you to search for users, boards, topics followed, and more. When logging in, your home page will include the pin feed. The pins on the pin feed are in chronological order. You can follow other users to see when they pin new items. They can also follow you back. If you are a business, you can upgrade to a business account for free. As a business, you can also run ads on Pinterest. Ad pricing depends on your business budget and other specific marketing plans.
