Pinterest works a bit differently from other social media sites. Instead of simply putting up individual posts (known as pins), pinners create boards. Those boards allow them to sort and organize their pins based on subject matter. Pinterest users can follow a single board created by Pinterest Influencer or follower the pinner’s profile. Rather than generating original content, Pinterest thrives on sharing links and compelling imagery sourced from all over the Internet. So, it’s no wonder today’s top Pinterest Influencers curate some of the top Pinterest boards that feature everything from beauty to interior design, recipes to motivational words of wisdom.
