With billions of Pins on Pinterest, you'll always find ideas to spark inspiration. When you discover Pins you love, save them to boards to keep your ideas organized and easy to find.

Key features

  • “Pins” are to Pinterest as “Tweets” are to Twitter. Pins include information about the board they are posted to.
  • Pinterest provides boards to share your ideas, themes, and your favorite Pins.
  • There is a guided search feature which gives keyword suggestions when entering a search term. This narrows down results and the ability to filter based on a few parameters.
  • You can follow other users with similar interests and see their latest Pins.
