5 Reasons to Use Pinterest

For those who are unaware, Pinterest is a social networking site that allows users to “pin” or save items to “boards,” or themed albums. The posts often include photographs or link to websites that people found interesting. Here are just a few reasons why this website is helpful.

  • ORGANIZATION

The unique organizational structure of Pinterest is one of the biggest draws to this technology. Not only are users free to use as many boards as they choose, they can set how public or private they want the board to be. With such a wide variety of information circulating the site, being able to break it down into categories allows for easier accessibility for future reference and for friends who are seeing your pins. The easy navigation allows for an enjoyable experience.

  • MOTIVATION

Pinterest has a large database of healthy living items such as exercise routines and nutritional recipes. The wide array of fitness and dieting is quite motivational in nature, making it both fun and easy to find exercises that will work on areas you are most concerned with.

  • INSPIRATION

This website is full of inspirations for gift ideas, home decor, seasonal decorations, holiday gifts, wedding displays and favors and so much more. In addition to this, there is a large following of the fashion industry that displays trends and seasonal looks. Whether you are planning a large event or just want to change-up the appearance of your home or yourself you can find numerous ideas here.

  • SOCIALIZATION

Pinterest allows you to connect with your Facebook and email friends. You can see what people you know are pinning and even have the option to “like” or “repin” their posts to one of your boards. You can also search the site in general and can connect with others with similar interests and boards.

  • TIPS & TRICKS

Pinterest is full of do-it-yourself tutorials. There are all kinds of recipes and projects for making things yourself. There are a vast array of ideas for remodeling old furniture, making art or decor with household items, making your own clothes, tips and tricks for baking and cooking, and so much more.
It is both a fun way to spend time and to save ideas for future reference. It is a great way to get and share ideas with others. Overall it is a highly recommended site for lovers of crafts!
