The picture network is not essentially different from the principles of the social network Instagram. At the Pinterest, users also share images that are less based on text than on visual impressions through strong or emotional images. In Pinterest, however, the user has the possibility to sort his pictures! This means that there is not only a chronological timeline in which all images are listed, but each image is sorted into a single folder.
This is how the name Pinterest came from. They put themselves so to speak several pinboards on the user then their pictures can get sorted sorted can.
