Alternative “Pinteresting” Sites

If you haven’t heard about Pinterest, and you are between the ages of 25 and 44, you must be living under a rock!  Pinterest is the 3rd largest social media site in The United States next to Facebook and Twitter.  Pinterest is a virtual pinboard centered around interests, like events, design, products, hobbies, etc. Businesses leverage these themes by creating custom boards relevant to their brand. Mixing your own product images with external images provides the most effective results.
