“I found it on Pinterest” is quickly becoming a household saying. It’s even been referred to as “fantasy football for women.” Although the pinboard-style social photo sharing website has been online since 2011, it has recently gained viral momentum. Don’t be turned off by the “invitation to join”  – it’s simply a marketing technique to keep people interested. Once you get your invitation, you can create boards and start “pinning.” Pins are images found anywhere online as well as images you can upload to the site. Like Twitter and Instagram, you can follow other users and see their pins on your homepage, like the pins, and repin onto any of your boards. Although it can be used for fun and a cure for boredom, the site can also be used as an organizational tool. Here are some suggestions for boards:


  1. Wedding ideas
  2. Birthday and holiday wish lists
  3. Home décor ideas
  4. Things that inspire you
  5. Motivational images- especially for weight loss
  6. Hairstyles
  7. Things you love
  8. Humor
  9. Flowers
  10. Recipes
