Pinterest is one of the newest social media websites that has quickly become extremely popular with the youth and generally women. If you are an artist or crafter, you may already be a member of this website. In case you don't know much about Pinterest, here is an overview of what it is all about.

Pinterest describes itself as a virtual Pinboard on which you can 'pin' your images to share with your followers. In addition to pinning your photos, you can modify and post anything interesting you find on the internet. In essence, Pinterest is similar to a pinboard hanging on the wall in your a room. I just joined a few days ago and only have two pins, mostly my work. This weekend I will rummage around Pinterest to post things on my board.

When I find an appealing picture or great item, photograph, artwork, or anything I like, I will rip it out and pin it onto my board. If you are a parent, you may have a collection of your child(ren)’s artwork on the refrigerator. The concept is the same, except that this is online and collaborative with other members.

Once you complete the signup process, you get the chance to create different boards for yourself. You can customize and ‘name’ the boards according to your interests. You can also like and follow other people’s boards. One of the commonly used features is the re-pin, which is similar to the retweet on Twitter.

The boards and anything you share on them can be posted on Facebook and other social media websites as well. The original website link from where the image was taken is posted, so when someone clicks on the image, they are directed to that website. This helps in increasing the traffic to that particular website. This alone could be huge due to the incredibly viral nature of social media!

Like all social media websites,Pinterest is designed to be interesting and engaging. There is little surprise that it has grown substantially to be ranked among the top 10 social networks at present. Originally, Pinterest is used by people to organize and share their interests with their friends and other users of the website. Recently, the website has started to generate considerable buzz in the corporate world because of potential opportunity to get their products noticed to Pinterest fans.
As an artist trying to get my work exposed, I will definitely look into Pinterest as a better social media than facebook because it is a picture/graphic orientated site. Please visit my new and sparse Pinterest Boards, If you wish, make a suggestion or comment.
