With almost 300 million engaged users, Pinterest is quickly becoming the new multifaceted social media platform. It’s is a free web and mobile-based application where users create what’s known as “pinboards.” These pinboards can then be labeled by whatever the user desires, from arts and crafts, recipes, fashion and beauty, home improvements, and much more. These are cataloged within Pinterest where other users may view the information in the form of images or videos neatly grouped together by similar tags or links within the site. On the Pinterest platform, the user can browse various videos or images related to a search or recommended “pins” by Pinterest and pin them to their categorized boards. These pins generally have a link attached to them that take you directly to the website associated with the video or image, making it a much easier and streamlined way to search information on the world wide web. Much like other social media platforms, Pinterest allows its users to follow, comment, and like other “Pinners” boards based on their content. Pinterest also hosts business based boards where entrepreneurs can create content or sell items directly related to their business, which allows for consumers to easily purchase an item they see within the site. This creates the potential increase in revenue for entrepreneurs, also comparing Pinterest to that of Etsy, eBay, and other e-commerce websites.
Pinterest is a platform for anyone who is looking for a streamlined social media account that you can completely personalize to your own style and likes by searching through a vast collection of visual information. With its ability to offer personalized, condensed visual content, connect people through social interaction, and the option to purchase items you find, this makes Pinterest an interesting combination of Facebook, Youtube, and Etsy all neatly packaged together in a user-friendly application.
