Pinterest is a visual social networking site which allows you to pin images onto virtual pin-boards. Grab images from sites around the web or from other pinners. Like most social networking sites, you can follow others to see what they are pinning and others can follow you. It can be a great tool in marketing especially if you have visual products or services.
Making the most of Pinterest from your Strikingly Site
