How To Create And Manage Pinterest Boards

Pinterest boards, Pins, Repin, etc. are some terminologies that may be a little bit odd for you if you are not a Pinterest user. But believe me, these terminologies are just amazing. You just have to come on Pinterest and you will fall in love with Pinterest. Monthly millions of people post and save Pins from their favorite Pinterest boards.

In simple words, every post on Pinterest is called Pin and all these Pins are saved in a categorized folder which is called Pinterest Boards. These are the things that make Pinterest different from other social media sites.

In this article, we will discuss thoroughly what Pinterest boards are actually. How to create them and how to manage these boards.

What Is A Pinterest Board?

Unlike, other social media sites where all posts are organized in chronological order. Pinterest organized its posts in a categorized folder called boards. For example, posts related to food may save on a food board, and posts about home décor ideas may save on a home décor board. And to promote your business or brand you can make a board with your brand name.

You can create boards according to your taste. Rather than following a whole profile, you can just follow a single board from that profile.
