You can browse the pinboards of other users in their feed, and save those you like on your own board using the ‘Pin It’ button. With this button you can upload pictures outside of this network too, adding them to your board. With pinning items, creating pinboards and communicating with other users by sending and receiving pins, you can personalize your own ‘Pin feed’.
