Most people around the world are without a doubt, addicted to pinning images on Pinterest. Pinterest is an excellent resource to have for future projects or simply just when you are seeking inspiration. However, there are still people who simply do not see the beauty behind the app. Some people refer to Pinterest as either “Pinsanity” or “Pointless”. Pinterest is undeniably one of the greatest social networking sites of 2014, however, some still fail to acknowledge it. The site first launched in beta-mode in March 2010. And now, four years later, it has become one of the best apps on the market. Pinterest’s user base has soared tremendously since 2010. What is the beauty behind Pinterest and why are some still reluctant to see it?
Pinterest is a very clever visual inspiration site that is useful for individuals of all ages. It can be used for all different kinds of purposes from bookmarking articles, collecting images as inspiration for projects and just looking at places you would like to go to. Some of Pinterests most popular categories are the Do It Yourself and recipe category. There you will find ideas on how to make just about anything and ultimately, saving you some cash! Instead of looking for items one by one on the internet, you could easily see neat ideas all on one page! Pinterest is a time saver, and if you are not using Pinterest, you are surely missing out!
As hard as it is to believe, some people hate Pinterest when they first see it. The reason being that they simply do not understand how to work the app. The site lets you “pin” linked images from the web onto personal pinboards, and follow your friends’ pinboards as well. To some people, the homepage looks like a messy collage— ultimately feeling overwhelmed by the barrage of food, clothes, and chic-looking room photos spread across the screen. The primarily reason why some people are not on the Pinterest database is because they don’t understand how to function the app. The app isn’t very complicated to use. Once you learn how to function it properly, Pinterest becomes a great resource to have.
All in all, Pinterest is a wonderful app to use. It saves you a great amount of money and time in the long run. There are more positive than negatives for Pinterest. Miners, do not forget to give Pinterest a try!
