Pinterest enables you to save interesting pictures and videos from the Internet by pinning them; you can also share your pins with other people. You can unpin items from your Pinterest account if you no longer need them. Note that you can delete a single pin at a time or, although you can't delete all your pins at once, you can delete an entire board. When you delete a board, all its pins are permanently deleted.
