As i have mentioned in my previous post(s), my dad in currently confined at a hospital.

Now, I am here inside his hospital room using Pinterest.

First thing’s first..

What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a tool for collecting and
organizing things you love.

(c) Pinterest website

Pinterest is a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Users can browse other pinboards for images, “re-pin” images to their own pinboards, or “like” photos. The site was founded by Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra and Evan Sharp. It is managed by Cold Brew Labs and funded by a small group of entrepreneurs and investors.

To cut the chase..

There are basically a gazillion (or even more) pictures there.

One picture or post is equivalent to one pin.

If a certain “pin” interests you, you can “re-pin” them at your own board or “like” it.

A board is basically your own category of pins.

You have your own profile and so does the other people who use Pinterest too.

You can follow one another and similar to facebook/tumblr, you have your own dashboard/news feed where you will be able to view your pins and the pins of those who you follow.

If you still can’t get it, checking out the website itself will do the trick.

And if you wanna see a sample page, you can check out mine here..

While at it, you can follow me there as well 🙂

Enjoy pinning!! :>
