Can someone explain exactly what it is and how to use it.   Walke thru it.  I'm not understanding it totally

Thanks.   Sorry.  Low tec and don't understand what some of the terms mean nor how to use it.  Especially to build mood boards

Basically, you make a board (think of it as a categorized folder) and you can either upload or re-pin things into it. It's great for having a place to keep inspirational pictures, or for setting up a place for clients to go to get an idea what they want/show you what it is they're looking for/ect.
To make a board, click on "add", which is at the top right of your screen (along Nowwith the "about" button and the "*insert username here* button with your avatar on it.
Clicking this brings you to an area where you can upload an image, repin an image using a url link (which I believe can take be taken from tumblr, flickr, ect. Though I've not tried this), or create a board.
Click on create a board, and enter the information you want into it, and press create. OR you could click on your icon, which brings you onto your profile page, and there you'll see empty boxes with "create board" on them. This does the same thing.

Now, if you put your cursor over a picture, you'll see the options "repin" "comment" and "like" show up at the top of the image.

You can select any one you like, but if you want the image on one of your boards, then you would repin it. It'll pull up a window, where you can select which board you want to pin it onto and, if you want, make your own comment.
Then you click on "pin it" and you're done!

I've noticed some of the buttons are reeeeeaaaally slow, so it might take it a while before they do anything, and maybe a few clicks. But I don't know if that's just for me, or if that's normal

If you pin an image on Pinterest without the permission of the Copyright holder, you are in violation of the Berne Treaty, US Copyright Law and international copyright law.

Even Pinterest's TOS reflects that - quote "You agree not to post User Content that:... infringes any third party’s Intellectual Property Rights, privacy rights, publicity rights, or other personal or proprietary rights;"

From what I can see, most of you are in violation. Fortunately, Pinterest is not at risk because in the TOS you also agreed to pay any legal costs, fines, etc. they might incur from your copyright infringement.

Notice how you didn't bother to address the legal liability issues or the quoted section of Pinterest's Terms of Use, Erick. Why is that?

Yes I agree, this is going to be a big issue. Photo networking helps everyone as long as it is done in a good way to promote. Its when people use credit for other images that is wrong. The site as well has to be liable for anything that may come up- TOS do not always hold up in court-

The argument on the site's TOS makes for interesting reading but I would say that the main problem will arise when people start claiming the pictures of others. For now, there are links to the original owners and no one is saying that all the pictures on their boards are theirs.

Claims of ownership have nothing to do with copyright infringement. If you pin something that you don't own without the permission of the copyright holder, you are infringing. Immaterial what you claim regarding ownership.

Pinterest created a business model that encourages users to violate copyright law and transfers all the risk to the person doing the pinning.  When we permit this type of business activity, we are devaluing our own work.   Copyright is a violation of the law and photographers are growing weary of spending big bucks to create work that the world thinks is free for the taking.  More and more are starting to fight back and sue. 

So when you pin, ask yourself, "Do you feel lucky today????"

There's not much of anything there, yet. I also made a We Heart It account recently. I think I might like that better; I'll know when I start using them both more.
