There are many unique social media platforms out today which allow you to share different types of media and share common interests with other people. A new innovative social network known as Pinterest has allowed users to share their favorite photos with other users. Pinterest’s main function is to allow you to share photographs and images across a pinboard. A pinboard is usually the main page of their website, where pictures can be pinned by other users in order to share them. To pin an image, a user must simply find a photograph they wish to share and submit it to the website. One of the ways Pinterest has created a unique user experience is by creating the pinning system.
