Pinterest

Last month, I wrote about a very interesting tool for bookmarking: Pocket
Save to Pocket has proven to be incredibly helpful. It’s pretty intuitive, saves content for later access and has easy-to-install add-ons, which means that, with a simple click, your site is saved.
But the real jewel of bookmarks in my opinion is definitely Pinterest. Ahh, Pinterest, you make me waste countless hours sailing through a sea of pins. But I love you, anyway.

It works pretty much the same way. You find something you like on the web and you pin it for future reference. There’s also an add-on for Chrome, which you can install from here. You can create different boards in order to organize your content and find it more quickly. 

Bookmarking has evolved in the past years into social bookmarking, which basically means that you can share the content you found and also benefit from what other people have stumbled upon on the Internet. Pinterest has this social component as well, since you can follow other pinners and get inspired by their pins. 
Some of the pinners I find most useful are TEDEdudemicEdutopia and Humor Train for the occasional laugh. And you can find me as well 😉
Happy pinning!
