Pinterest was actually launched in March, 2010 and has now grown 4000% in the last six months! It has 17 million users a month and drives more referral traffic than YouTube, Google+ and LinkedIn combined.

Images can be uploaded from personal computers or pinned onto a themed board using the ‘pin it’ button which we love. If you see something you like online, after installing the ‘pin it’ button onto your toolbar, all you have to do is click it and it is automatically added to your selected board. It will also automatically link back to the webpage you got it from.

It’s great that you can organise your own boards with as many categories as you can think of, browse other people’s boards and even just follow specific boards. Then if you see something you like, similar to Facebook, there is a ‘Like’ button as well as a ‘Repin’ button, if you would like to add the image to your own collection.

Silver are always on the look out for creativity, clever design and interesting things and Pinterest ticks all those boxes.
