Pinterest is a free, social media site that allows its users to save, categorize, and share images/videos onto a virtual pinboard. It is the third most popular social media site. You can create a pinboard for any range of topics from motivational quotes to recipes and much more. It’s different from most social media sites because it has an emphasis on products rather than friends and family.
Who Is on It?
According to a study done in 2016 by the Pew Research Center, 31% of all Internet users have a Pinterest account, and 34% of these users are between 18-29 years of age. In addition, more women use Pinterest than men; however, the number of male users has been increasing.
