Why are people getting obsessed with Pinterest? Although the website has been there for more than two years now, but it’s only in the recent few months that the website has been getting more hits. This social bookmarking tool makes use of pin images on pinboards. This is more like an interactive scrapbook where people can come and share images and ideas with ease on any topic. One can also login using their Facebook or Twitter account.
