From sporting events, New Years Eve, to conventions, there really isn’t a shortage of things that people come to Las Vegas for. Whether for business or a little rest and relaxation, this desert town seems to have something for everyone.
Pinterest is a free website in which users can upload, save, sort and manage images, known as pins, and other media content (e.g. videos and gifs) through collections known as pinboards. Pinterest acts as a personalized media platform, whereby users’ content and the content of others can be browsed on the main page. Users can then save individual pins to one of their own boards using the “Pin It” button, with Pinboards typically organized by a central topic or theme. Users can personalize their experience with Pinterest by pinning items, creating boards, and interacting with other members. By doing so, the users “pin feed” will display unique, personalized results.
Content can also be found outside of Pinterest and similarly uploaded to a board via the “Pin It” button which can be downloaded to the bookmark bar on a web browser, or be implemented by a webmaster directly on the website. They also have the option of sending a pin to other Pinterest users and/or email accounts through the “Send” button.
Initially, there were several ways to register a new Pinterest account. Potential users could either receive an invitation from a friend already registered or they could request an invitation directly from the Pinterest website, but this may take some time to be received. An account can also be created and accessed by linking Pinterest to a Facebook or Twitter profile. When a user re-posts or “re-pins” an image to their own board, they have the option of notifying their Facebook and Twitter followers; this feature can be managed on the settings page.
