Camille Ritchie | @camizzle33 Pinterest is a social bookmarking and photo-sharing website that is set up like an online pin board. It allows users to browse themes and categories (including fashion, events, illustrations, how-to's and an array of hobbies) and “re-pin” them to their own boards.
These pictures catch users attention and lead people straight to the company's website. This online scrapbook of you and your Facebook and Twitter friends has made it easy to share interests with like minded people, come up with great gift ideas, and easily promote ones business. Pinterest has caught on like wildfire and is the “fastest growing social media in the world.”
