Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video What is a board?, part of Learning Pinterest.
Another term that you are going to hear all of the time when you're using Pinterest is board. …So, exactly what is a board? …Well, a board is nothing more than a set of pins. …A board can be created on basically any topic, such as cool posters, recipes for dinner, or …even a wish list. …You can add as many pins to a board as you want. …So on my profile here, you can see that I have already got two boards in place: lynda.com, …videos which contains 10 pins, and Wedding Plans, which contains 7 pins.…
If I happen to click on one of these board names, it takes me to that board and shows …me all of the pins that are available to me in it. …I can scroll up and down to see each individual pin. I can also click on the pin to jump into …Lightbox mode to see the pin a little bit more clearly. …Clicking outside of that takes me back to the pinboard. …At any given time, you have the ability to edit and manage this board using the Edit Board button. …You can also add new pins to this board at any given time as well. …
