The Pins

The Pin is an image that is linked from a website or uploads. A pin that was saved from someone board can still be saved to your own board; this process is known as repining. As time goes by, Pinterest decided to change the name from pin to save because of international expansions to make the site to be more understandable to the new users. as time runs by Pinterest started showing advertisements in the form of “promoted pins.” This promoted pin is normally based on personal interests, activities done on the platform or as a result of visiting and advertising site or app.


Boards are a collection of pins which was devoted to a theme e.g. quotations, travel, and weddings. These boards can be created, which means that you can create your boards to showcase your products or other things.


The platform uses a feature named “guided search” that gives room for keyword suggestion whenever you are making a search term, this helps to bring out results. And this makes searching to be easier and faster.
