Thing 7: Content Saving and Sharing, Pinterest

Pinterest: "Pinterest is a visual bookmarking tool that turns that traditional list of bookmarks into a bulletin board-type display of photos. You pin to Boards (folders) you create so you can find the pins again. Each photo/pin is a link to the site where you found it. This is great for visual learners or anyone who needs a pictorial reminder of just why you saved that link. Pinterest has many social features to explore, too, but this Thing focuses on the saving/finding features of the mobile app for Pinterest."

I am a mad fiend for Pinterest and I love using it on my iPhone. I use it both personally and professionally. How much do I use it?
