Oh yippee, another social-networking site. Well, this one seems to have some legs. Pinterest has been described as a cross between Tumblr and StumbleUpon, but it also has a strong scrapbooking mentality.
Users pin photos, recipes, and other Internet finds onto the site so that others can like, re-pin, or comment on them. All this content is collected onto virtual pinboards for easy organization.
Pinterest is invite-only at the moment. I'm on the waiting list myself, which shouldn't be surprising considering that I'm a woman.
