A picture is worth a thousand words is an old adage. But with 176 million registered users and climbing, Pinterest is proving it’s still true in the world of social media.
Pinterest users post or “pin” images from around the Web on boards they create to represent their interests. These pins link back to the original source, like bookmarks, so users can easily revisit the material. Other users can view those pins and comment on them.
Pictures, commenting and the thrill of discovering shared interests are essential to the Pinterest experience. They’re also essential for engaging employees on your internal social media.
