Pinterest as you know is a fun, visual and some would say addictive social network. Along with the cat memes, DIY projects, motivational quotes and other content I (and many others) enjoy it also has become a go to source for discovering new and interesting social media content. That’s right, there’s more to Pinterest than cats and recipes :-). It’s also a fantastic place that I turn to in helping me to discover and curate social media, online marketing, graphic design and other content and tips related to everything digital.
Below you will find 16 of my favourite social media themed Pinterest boards and while you may see some duplicates in terms of what the board is about, each board is unique enough to include on the list. I guarantee you won’t regret following any of these boards as they will fill your Pinterest feed with nothing but highly pinnable and shareable content.

As you can see Pinterest is not only great as a place to collect content around your interests but also as a content discovery, curation and learning platform. The new search features found within the mobile app and on the Pinterest website allow for users to easily discover more content in the topics they wish learn more about and make it easier to find those users who are sharing and generating that great content.
In order for marketers to make Pinterest work for them they have to shift their mindsets into thinking of Pinterest as more than just a recipe and shoe collection site. It can in fact be used by brands and business as a marketing platform that can generate brand awareness and even sales.
