What Pinterest is: It's an online collection of visual "pinboards" that showcase unique, inspiring designs and images from across the Web.

How it works: It's as simple as creating a Pinterest profile with your Facebook or Twitter accounts. Add the "Pin It" button to your browser's bookmark bar and simply click it whenever you come across something online worth pinning. Ā
