What is Pinterest?
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard that allows you to organize and share all the great things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your same interests. Minnesota fans can use pinboards to stay up-to-date on their favorite athletic teams, plan Gopher-themed weddings, share tailgating ideas, find your Gopher style and much more!
What is a Pin?
A pin is an image added to Pinterest. A pin can be added from a website using the Pin It button, or you can upload images from your computer. Each pin added using the Pin It button links back to the site it came from.
What is Pinterest's Mission?
Our goal is to connect everyone in the world through the 'things' they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.
