Subject

With over 10 million users, Pinterest has rocketed to pop-culture fame since its launch in beta in March 2010. This rapid growth makes it the fastest growing social media site of the past year. If you’re familiar with Pinterest, it’s easy to understand why. The system of “curating” all things found on the Internet is easy to use, free, and frankly, addicting. It’s a whole new way to collect and organize all those appealing, intriguing and interesting images and ideas you come across on the Internet every day. What’s more, you can share your boards with other Pinterest users.

People from all walks of life are finding new and exciting ways to use Pinterest. While a bride-to-be might curate boards based on flowers, attire, food and more for her big day, travel aficionados can create boards based on their dream destinations. Educators have caught on to Pinterest in a big way. From kindergarten to college, teachers, professors and students are using Pinterest creatively to organize and share ideas from all around the Web and even in their own classrooms and campuses.
