When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
Due to my job, I spend a lot of time on the internet searching for trends and inspiration, tutorials, or just things I like or that make me laugh. I used to have some images saved on Facebook that I found on the internet but one day, I found Pinterest by chance. I was like, “Really? A place where I can collect all my stuff, by categories, in order (I’m a neat freak), and I can share it with my friends?” It’s made for me!
Why do you like Pinterest?
Pinterest is sort of the “anti-social” media, but in a good way. It’s a place to see beauty, what you search for, and what you like, without gossip or distractions. What I like the most is the way that it’s designed. Everything about the categories and the searching tools is very easy, visual and intuitive. In just one click you can see the image and all of the info you need to know about it. If you click again, it (usually) drives you to the source.
