"If you liked it, then you should have put a pin on it"
What is this thing called Pinterest? In short, it is an online pinboard to organize and share things. Use it to save recipes, collect images to plan a trip, or build your brand. Pinterest is the electronic version of a portfolio, an inspiration board, or a holiday/birthday wish list.
The site's popularity has garnered a lot of press especially since it surged past 10 million unique visitors last month. TechCrunch named Pinterest the best new start-up of 2011, and TIME Magazine placed the site on it's 50 best websites of 2011.
Pinterest can also help small and large businesses promote their brand. Here's a recent article from BostInno highlighting how the site has helped a local Boston business.
