What is a Pin?

A pin is the primary type of post published on Pinterest. Pins include an image or video, text, and can link back to an original source.

What is a Board?

Pinterest boards are like a digital-analog for mood boards. They are used to group pins around a certain theme or topic. For example, you might create a board for gathering inspiration for an upcoming remodeling project.
