Users of Pinterest create themed boards, populating them with media found online using the "Pin It" button, or uploaded from their computers. Each such item of media is known as a "pin", and can be a picture, a video, a discussion, or a product. Pins can be grouped into so called "boards", which are sets of pins focused on a specific topic. Pinterest can be accessed by adding the "pin it" button to the desktop bookmark bar, "follow me" and "pin it" buttons added to personal website or blog pages.

According to the about page of Pinterest "Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests."
