What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a social network that allows users to visually share, and discover new interests by posting (known as ‘pinning’ on Pinterest) images or videos to their own or others’ boards (i.e. a collection of ‘pins,’ usually with a common theme) and browsing what other users have pinned.  It is a pin board on the internet.

What are the benefits of Pinterest?

As a family and children’s leader I have boards for just about every Bible story as well as ideas for games and prayers and quiet time and plays.  You name it, it has a pinterest board so that I don’t loose an idea, no matter where I find it.

This is the main way most people use pinterest, to help them store ideas they find online and make sure they can find them again in the future.  Of course many of these may well be pinned and never seen again, but who knows.

People love to take photos, of their crafts, of food, of holidays and anything else; pinterest is a great place to keep these organised and share them with your friends and family.

Pinterest might be a place you find inspiration or somewhere you hope to inspire others; or perhaps a bit of both.  It is a place to share and find and browse no matter what your interest.
