About Pinterest

Pinterest is a social network created by a trio of entrepreneurs (Evan Sharp, Ben Silbermann and Paul Sciarra) and planned so that users can share their ideas, interests and hobbies through visual content, such as images and videos. For developers this journey began in 2009, but it was not until 2010 that invited users began to arrive to enjoy an open beta.

The growth of the social network began to be recognized in December 2011, when it was included by Hitwise among the 10 largest social network services of the moment. In 2012, it became the third most popular social network in the United States, above Linkedin. Today, still in open beta, it continues to grow in popularity with more than 250 million users.

The name, Pinterest, is a play on English words that is composed of the following form: “Pin”, which can be translated as “Pin” or “Tack” and ” interest “, whose translation in this context would be “to be interested” . Taking into account the style that this social network handles, this combination makes sense.
