As of 2021, Pinterest is one of the 14th most popular and most used social networks of the 21st century. It has over 450 million active users every month that are increasing with every passing day. You might be used to searching for images on Google Images, unfortunately this search engine is no longer indexing all the images like it used to do once. For this very reason most people sign up for Pinterest and search for the images that they are interested in.
Personal and Business Use:
Just like any other network such as Instagram and Facebook you can use Pinterest for promoting your business as well. However, you will have to invest a big deal of time on Infographics because they will be able to present all about your business in one image. Don’t use images that are public domain because they are being used by many other people as well.
Infographics are great for personal and business marketing because you can adjust the content along with the information that is needed to be conveyed in the campaign.
Even if you don’t have any business to promote on the network, you can still make the best of the huge image database of Pinterest. It has more images than you could ever imagine. Gone are the days when contextual content used to be popular because now images have become one of the most viewed content in terms of visual media worldwide.
Visual Media Tool:
Nobody loves and wants to read through lengthy content anymore because it is time consuming. However, Instagram images are not limited to simple media. There are shorts (short length videos) as well that are making an exclusive buzz these days. These videos are short visual presentations of tutorials and guides.
Let’s say you want to learn how to make “Chicken cheese casserole with mushrooms”, you can type it in the Pinterest search box, you will be amazed to see that there are too many videos on the same subject available at your disposal to go through. It’s now your choice as which one is the best looking recipe that you want to try. In the end, you will get what you have come for. And in a video of a few seconds you would be able to view all the necessary steps involved in making a delicious feast of casserole.
In other words, Pinterest is a visual media tool and search engine that has a lot of images, videos, and content in store to help you with anything you are looking to learn. I would say that it is a productivity tool in one place. You won’t have to go anywhere else if you intend to learn how to cook, how to braid, and how to make a fairy garden.
Saving Your Favorite Material:
You can save everything in your account by assigning an individual board to a certain category, class, subject and niche. Let’s say that you wish to collect some images and videos on sous vide recipes. All you have to do is create a board and name it “Sous vide cooking”, and now you need to save and pin all the content under it.
To pin and save any image, you will have to install or download the Pinterest bookmarklet. If you go to the website after signing up it will give you access to a page from where you can download the bookmarked for your browser. It will show up on your browser once you refresh the page. So whenever you wish to pin any image from a website. You can simply use the bookmarklet to save that image.
If you simply want to save images and videos which are already available on Pinterest. All you have to do is simply click on the image and save it under a board of your choice.
How to Delete a Pin on Pinterest?
What are pins? All the images and videos that you have saved and pinned under a board are known as pins or pinned content. You can definitely edit your board to keep all the images that you want to save and keep. For instance, when we join Pinterest. We pin too many posts all at once and sort them out in different boards.
It makes out account so bulky with thousands of pinned images and posts. You may wish to delete the pins that you are no longer interested in viewing, saving and keeping for future reference. Here are a few steps on how to delete a pin on Pinterest.

- Click on the pin and tap on three horizontal dots.
- After clicking on the dots you will see the delete option on the bottom left corner.

You can even edit your pins by including hashtags, captions and descriptions just the same way. It is totally in your control as to how many images you wish to display under a particular board. If you are too picky and wish to keep your account neat with all the images that you love. Then you can delete all unnecessary images from it. This can be done by deleting the pins individually from the boards.
