Everyone’s heard of it. And many of us have used it. Pinterest has grown to become one of the most popular and frequently used social media tools out there.
For those who may be living under a rock and are wondering what in the world Pinterest is, it’s a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Think of it as your own virtual photo album that’s completely personalized and filled with images that describe you in a nutshell.
From branding companies, to fashion designers, to even your own mother, Pinterest has become a widely known social media sensation. It’s easy to play around with and get started on. But, believe anyone who’s used it before: it can be incredibly addicting! Once you start “pinning”, there’s no turning back…
Some critics argue that Pinterest is just a waste of time. However, I beg to differ. Pinterest is definitely the place to be, especially if you’re a college student.
Having a bad day? Are exams and projects piling up and you’re starting to feel overwhelmed and on the verge of giving up? Just log onto Pinterest and start pinning away inspirational quotes that’ll keep you moving when the semester gets rough.
Pinterest is filled with extraordinary photographs, works of art from well-known to up-and-coming artists, and a lot of creative ideas to turn ordinary things such as furniture to extraordinary. Fuel your creativity or even display your works of art for others to see!
