Here are some of Pinterest’s main features:
- Save, try and share Pins: the platform is so full of inspiring ideas that you will have to save them, but you can also share them! If you click on the click of a Pin you like, you will be redirected to the official website of the item.
- Create boards: In order to better organize your research and sources of inspiration, you can create your own thematic boards. If you don’t want your followers to see them, you can also set them as private.
- Collaborate with friends: if you need group inspiration and organization tips and ideas for a project or an event, you can collaborate with your friends on boards.
- Suggestions: according to your saved and explored images and videos, Pinterest will make you suggestions with similar ideas to expand your inspiration.
How Does Pinterest Work?
Once downloaded, you can track and follow any category or theme you like. You just need to do a simple search, for example for pinterest recipes and it’s done! Images related to your selections will then be prioritised so that you can discover new relevant information. The app also allows you to create boards on which you can publish, repost, or share new images. These boards can be made public or kept private.
Is Pinterest Safe?
When it comes to protecting your personal information, Pinterest seems as safe as most social networks. Almost no personal data is required, except for your age and your name - but because Pinterest has no way of verifying them many people use fake info. The platform doesn’t ask for any financial information, which makes spams and scams from other users the biggest threat. Some users have reported losing the access to their pins or having scammy links attached to them - this can be inconvenient for promoters.
