Pinterest is a virtual cork board, which can be used to share your interests with followers. It is wholly visual. A Pinterest user would install the Pinterest application on their own computer - using a shared, public computer would not be suitable. Once the app is installed, a user surfs web pages and simply clicks on the "Pin This" app to virtually "pin" any image they come across to one of their boards. A user has the option of creating a new board at the time of pinning or of selecting which board they wish to pin the new image on.
