Pinterest is quickly rising as a social platform that can easily hang with Internet elites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The site, which is currently driving more traffic than Google+ and LinkedIn combined, is filled with visually stimulating photo boards that showcase a range of topics from weddings, to travel, to food and more recently, philanthropy.
Traffic analytics have shown that Pinterest’s melange of images are luring mainly women in the midst of planning their weddings to this smorgasbord of eye candy, but as more unconventional boards begin to pop up, it’s probably safe to say that so will a diverse group of users.
Of the more popular pinboards to peruse is the “Food & Drink” section, which features (mostly) gorgeous photos that are often linked to recipes, blogs and food magazines. Another personal favorite of mine are boards sponsored by nonprofits. Not only are most of the photographs beautiful and intriguing, but the use of such images are helping spread awareness for specific causes that could use the extra attention.
Since the point of Pinterest is to share images that inspire, intrigue and enlighten, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite food and philanthropy boards, which we hope will lead you to some interesting (and fun) repinning sessions.
