It's in our Pinterest

As Wiki explains, Pinterest is a pinboard-style social photo sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, hobbies, and more. It's a place where users can browse other pin boards for inspiration,’re-pin' images to their own collections or 'like' photos.
Pinterest's mission is to "connect everyone in the world through the 'things' they find interesting" via a global platform of inspiration and idea sharing and a notion we at Mindseye are adopting.
Experienced with assisting the development of our client’s social media identities, we have also taken the time to create six boards of our own to show how this new fad can be used. Our boards share the foods, places, inspirations and hobbies we enjoy. So far we have found the whole process rather therapeutic. In particular it’s been stimulating to see quality examples of photography and textures through the imagery and photographs that others are 'pinning'.
One of our favourite bloggers, Amy Lynn Andrews, has summed up the 'Ultimate' list of Pinterest tips and basics here: http://bloggingwithamy.com/pinterest-tips/ especially how Pinterest can be utilised to drive traffic to your website.
Why not try it yourself? You might just find yourself digging out old images and falling in love with new.
