When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
In 2011, my friend Mariana Casals showed me her boards on Pinterest. I found it really interesting that I could pin my favourite images to a single place and organize them in categories. On that very day I asked her to invite me and then I created my account. I really like how Pinterest provides organization.
Pinterest was breakthrough because it recognized the power of images on the internet. It is visually much more captivating to scroll through the Pinterest feed than through an article about fashion or food. Another thing I love is the endless ways you can organise your boards, which interests people of all tastes and styles, be them designers, housewives, or teachers like me.
