Like Instagram Pinterest is heavily based on graphics, but has the functionality and organization of social bookmarking platforms. Pinterest allows you to create image-inspired boards to share with others, thus, making it easy to reach potential clients. When you pin an image, you’re not just sharing it, you’re sharing the link to that image, which can be a how-to DIY, a blog post, art collection, or a product on a retailer’s website.”
Businesses use Instagram to convey an idea or key message using an image which are far more effective than text alone. These images when coupled with company branding resonate a deeper emotional response thus making a more personal connection.
