I've heard of it, but I've never checked it out. I don't think I want to join any more social networking sites; I'm already on Facebook, twitter, Fanbox, and probably a few more that I haven't visited in a while.

I know a lot of people are really into Pinterest.  I have clicked around on it a little bit but it seems a little confusing.  :)

I have checked it out once or twice and I think I am going to really enjoy it.  I think it could be addicting.

I have heard of it but not sure what it is all about.  I know a lot of people that interact with it all day.

I have never heard of this social networking site like Pinterest. I checked out the site. I donít feel hooked. It doesnít appeal to me as much to register for an account.

It is considered a social networking site, but it is not really.  Have you ever been planning a party and you have all kinds of notes written on papers and some pages bookmarked with ideas you like and some little papers sticking out of 5 different cookbooks for recipes?  Well, on Pinterest, you create a board called "Party Ideas" (or whatever you want), then when you find something online you want to use or reconsider, you "pin" it to your board.  It puts up the picture you choose from the website.  That way, when you go back to find the ideas you had, they are all in one places, shown with pictures, instead of handwritten notes or whatever.  When you click on the picture you pinned, it takes you right back to the page you found your good idea on!  You can create boards for whatever you want- home decor, recipes, lesson plan ideas, fashion, etc.  The reason it is considered "social" is because you can follow others boards, if you like what they have or repin something someone else has pinned.  It has so many great idea, solutions for anything, great recipes... whatever!  I use mine all the time, but I always pin things I find on the internet on my own.  Many people just "repin" all day long, so you see the same things over and over.  I have had people tell me they "dont have time for that."  But unless you never use recipes or make a list or go back to something you saw before, then it definitely takes less time than traditional ways!
