There's a lot of talk about Pinterest lately, and it's easy to see why -- this new site caters to the visual side of our brain, sharing information cleanly and efficient by way of colorful images. A lot of people are having trouble categorizing Pinterest -- is it a social network, like Facebook? A social bookmarking site like StumbleUpon? A microblogging platform, similar to Tumblr? Really, Pinterest is in a league all its own, very different from the other social sites on the internet.
Basically, the site works by readers "pinning" great photos from a blog post or website, which is then linked back to the original site that the image came from. Pinterest allows you to share the visual elements of what you're reading with your followers, who then have the option of "repinning," or linking it to their own pinboard and passing it on to their followers. People are sharing all sorts of stuff on Pinterest, from cheerful home decor to lush photos of must-see destinations.
Since Pinterest is a perfect place to share images, can you think of my favorite thing to pin? That's right: FOOD.
