Is Pinterest for Personal or Business use?

Updated on December 14, 2014


What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a great social platform that has gained more attention in the last year than I expected. It is a visual collection where you create and share boards. Why it's called pinning is because anyone can pin a photo, a page, a website and share with the world, or their following.

A place to discover and it is also a visual bookmark, find from other people pins and share them, anything from the web, a pin could be a dish you like, next adventure, a DIY project, accessories, books, movies, and so much more.

Why join Pinterest?

It is a great social media network that is becoming a business network. For example, if you are an author and want to share your website, then you can pin it and others will be able to go to our site to see more about you. I have a board listed as Jackie Paulson so all of my readers can learn more about me!

      Hello Jackie,

      Thanks for the fan mail. I was unable to leave you fan mail because my cell phone froze (spinning) and never displayed the fan mail comments box.

      Anyway, welcome to Hubpages! Thank you for writing this hub on Pinterest. I have been learning from others that Pinterest is helpful and fun, so I want to look into it a bit more.

      Glad to hear that you want to take the 30 day challenge. You can create your own challenge and create a hub or thread about it like I did. Good luck with you writing!
