If you’ve ever been on Facebook and noticed that one of your friends has “pinned” something, you’ve had your first taste of Pinterest. Whether you’re a teen, a parent, a small business owner or the social media point person for a major corporation, you should be using Pinterest. What’s Pinterest? Currently being called the “third-largest social network,” Pinterest is a social media platform, like Facebook and Twitter, but it focuses primarily on images rather than text.
