As put best by the Pinterest team themselves, “Pinterest is a tool for collecting and organizing things you love.”
Pinterest is a fast growing, photo-sharing social media site that allows users to build and maintain theme-based pinboards. It allows users to browse other users photo boards and gain inspiration. The site development began out of San Francisco, CA in 2009 by Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra, and Evan Sharp. It is managed by Cold Brew Labs and funded by a small group of entrepreneurs and inventors. The site was launched in March 2010 in a closed beta arena and began as an invite-only site. It is now a site open to everyone!
