What do you use Pinterest for? Most use it to search for yummy recipes, organize a dream closet or plan their non-existent wedding. However in the past few years, businesses have started seeing the benefits of using Pinterest as a social media tool. Not only is it a great way to organize and share industry content, but it provides a great platform for visuals like infographics and other creative content.
