It was only launched in March 2010, and is today, still invite only, but Pinterest is grabbing the interest of a lot of creative internet user as it continues to snowball in popularity. I was instantly struck by Pinterest within minutes of signing up. But what is the site and what is so appealing about it?
Once you’ve been invited to join Pinterest, either through email request, or through a friend already using it you will be submerged into a beautiful world of organised visuals. So what is it? The idea is very simple, the website describes itself as “a virtual pinboard” that “allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web” As well as curating your own finds the site also allows you to “browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests“
