Yes, addicting! Honestly it's hard to explain... but you can go on there and search for things and then a bunch of great ideas and recipes pop up. You "pin" them to your "boards" to save them. But something that was really confusing when I first started with it was where is the information?! At first it just looks like a bunch of pictures but you have to click on the picture once to pin and then AGAIN to get the actual recipe or idea or whatever you are looking up.

I use it, but I don't get the obsession. If I see something a where on the web that I want to save, I pin it on Pinterest. I don't sit there and just search.

Pinterest is a social sharing platform that can be used to organize pictures on online bulletin boards.

I am obsessed with wedding pictures and every time I come along a neat picture while browsing the internet I post it on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/weddingswan/

You should definitely try it. It's truly addicting ;)

Say you're interested in cooking, baking, recipes... you can make your own profile and make your own "board" and title it "Food"...

Then you can look at the "Food and Drink" category on Pinterest and scroll through all the millions of pins.  When you see something you like, you can click on it and it'll bring it up and from there you can go to the website it was pinned from and see the recipe/pictures.  If you like it (even if you want to save it for later and don't have time to view the website) you can pin it to your board and then you'll have it!
