How do you use Pinterest?

This morning, I was wasting time on Pinterest, like I so often do. It got me thinking. What is the real purpose of Pinterest. I mean, there is the obvious - a place to collect pictures of all the things you love. AND it is something to do when you don't want to be doing what you should be doing. In other words, a HUGE means of procrastination. I know I am not alone in my enjoyment of this semi-new social media. Someone created a post in one of my groups asking what everyone's biggest time waster is. Pinterest was the second most common answer, next to CM. Whenever I ask for new ideas on a project, whether it be in CM, FB, or just in life, I am constantly referred to Pinterest. Pinterest is an amazing place, isn't it?

So I am just wondering, what do you use Pinterest for? Inspiration? Just to collect pictures of things you like?

If you use it for personal use, do you actually follow up and implement Pinterest ideas/projects into your life? Or do you just talk about doing them?

Or, maybe you have a business and you incorporate Pinterest into your marketing?

If you do use it for business, how is it working for you? Do you notice much success coming from Pinterest?

I use it for new recipes and craft ideas/patterns.  I don't pin random pics of things that I like.  If I pin something, it's with the intention to make it.  I've tried numerous recipes and made a bunch of different crafts that I've found on there.

I mainly just use it for recipes. I did try to advertise my business on it but it never really went anywhere.
