Then in simple terms for your convenience I will describe as the method of sharing and managing images and videos which find interesting on cyber world.  This feature facilitates you to generate virtual  pinboards so that you can make separate categories of different items found on web. The elements uploaded on pinboards are known as pins as soon as you integrate on your pinboard.
