Compared to other social media sites, like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, Pinterest is unique. Used for both personal and business purposes, this free mobile and web application reaches millions of people around the world. With Pinterest, you can “pin” bookmarks that include images, videos, and other forms of media content.

According to research conducted in 2013, more than 48 million people use Pinterest. At that rate, this social media site ranks as the fastest-growing site in history. Although you can post inspirational quotes, recipes, and home décor ideas for fun, it is also highly beneficial for business. For instance, if you work in real estate, Pinterest is an excellent resource for information, blogs, and articles.

Of course, boards are going to change continually on Pinterest, so at any given time a wealth of information is at your fingertips. However, some boards stand out for offering well-written content that is also helpful and just downright enjoyable to read. Any one of the following real estate boards on Pinterest is worthwhile, each accessible by conducting a simple search on the site.
