Pinterest is one of the most popular places to find and share ideas in the form of pictures and videos. Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your next art project or exploring infographics for a research-based task, this social platform can help you out. Many Pinterest users also use it for simply downloading cool wallpapers for their devices.

Diving deeper into it, boards are a basic but super essential feature of Pinterest. Since the app involves a sizeable community sharing tons of content, it can become tricky to keep track of your favorites. This is where Pinterest boards help you out big time.

What is a Pinterest board?

For beginners, a Pinterest board is merely a collection of your saved content or “pins.” This content may include images, GIFs, and even videos. Moreover, for ease of use, you can name each of these boards and configure their privacy settings. Additionally, boards also allow you to invite others to contribute to the collection by adding them as collaborators.
