Hi there, my name is Justin Seeley, and I am a staff author here at lynda.com. I would like to welcome you to Up and Running with Pinterest. Pinterest is a really interesting service that's really gaining popularity, and I am excited to share some of what it can do with you. We will begin this course by learning the lingo of Pinterest, like pinning, likes, comments, and even following. [00:00:23.1] Once we have nailed down the lingo, we will move on to learning how to use Pinterest. First, we will cover everything you need to know about pinboards. I'm also going to show you what I call a showcase of example boards, so you can get an idea of how other people are using Pinterest on the web today.
This includes things like planning a vacation, preparing for a wedding, or even scoping out your seasonal wardrobe. We will wrap up the course by taking a look at how we can use Pinterest on the go by accessing it via a mobile or tablet device on both Android and iOS.
