One of the fastest growing social networks in recent years is Pinterest. A simple spin on social media, Pinterest simply allows you to “pin” your favorite web material to a board. Friends can view your boards, separated into categories of your choosing, and “like and comment” on their favorites.
As a Pinterest user, you can view friends boards, as well as other public boards of any topic. While this site is for everyone (I was “researching” the site and was drawn to the humor section) Pinterest has become extremely popular with women. Even though it has a reputation as a place to plan weddings and share new and exciting recipes, Pinterest is full of things for everyone.

Safe Surfing Tip: Set a timer! As beginners will find out quickly, it is easy to get start viewing and pinning and lose track of time.
