Social Media 101: Using Pinterest for Your Nonprofit

Pinterest.com is a website that lets you create and manage collections of information that you find on Pinterest or the Internet at large, or that you upload to Pinterest yourself.

Individual pieces of information on Pinterest are called "pins", which are organized into custom categories that you create called "boards".
