Pinterest is a visual bookmarking tool for saving and discovering creative ideas.+ more about Pinterest

Pinterest is a visual discovery and planning tool. People ("Pinners") use the site and apps to get ideas for their future, such as recipes, places to travel, and products to buy, and save the things they love to their own boards. Pinners also follow the boards of others who they find interesting. The site experienced rapid growth in the second half of 2011 and is now a widely used social media application.
