You've probably heard a whole lot about Pinterest lately. This image-sharing Web site has become the new "it" social network. Well, Tom's Hardware just opened a Pinterest page, and we want you to join us. Need an invite? No problem, we'll send you one!
What is Pinterest?
Pinterest is a social network for sharing images, and there are all kinds of images on Pinterest. From artwork to consumer products, from cars to nature photography, from lolcatz to printable coupons, you name it.
According to Experian, Pinterest is now the third largest social network in the United States. According to comScore, Pinterest reached the ten million unique monthly visitors mark faster than any other Web site... ever. And incredibly, Pinterest is still invite-only!
How It Works
On Pinterest, users pin images to albums known as pinboards. Pins can be uploaded to Pinterest from the user's files, or simply as links to images already on the Web. Like any social network, Pinterest users follow each other, and can like pins posted by other users. Along with liking other people's pins, users can also repin those images to their own pinboards. Your Pinterest feed contains the pins, repins, and likes of people you follow.
