What Exactly Is Pinterest?

Pinterest is still fairly new. Yes it’s gaining massive traction and popularity but 99% of non-tech savvy people I know still don’t have a clue what it is. Within a few year or two the site has already got a spot in the top 10 list of social networks, a feat which has taken others multiple years. In words of the Blue Interactive Agency, it is the “HOTTEST NEW SOCIAL SETUP”.

Millions are flocking to this members only website which experienced an 815% growth over the last six months of 2011 and as of November 2011, Pinterest ranked no 10 among the social networking sites in total visits.

A view of what’s waiting for you on Pinterest:

Boards: Where you organise and categorize your images.

Pin: To place an image on one of your boards (the source is automatically pinned along).

Repin: To repost other members pins.

How to join Pinterest?

There are two ways of getting membership invitation:

  1. Request one from Pinterest.com.
  2. Request one from one who’s already a member.

Once you have received your invite register via facebook or twitter and begin posting images on your board. Follow others and get your own followers. You can also like and comment on pins much like facebook.

Do head to pinterest and see for yourself,  the 81% strong women members waiting!!!(nah!! Not a dating site!!) and experience the latest web addiction for millions.

Tip: chances are one of your facebook friends is already a member. So post a shout on your wall and see who can hook you up. However, if you want an invite, do drop your details below and one of the users from the site will be happy to send it to you.
