In pictures: The US Army’s guide to Pinterest

Check out what the US military had to say about the increasingly popular social pinboard site.

PINTEREST IS a tremendously successful social pinboard site that is taking the internet by storm.

It’s a big enough deal that the US Army took notice and assembled an explanatory guide on it, which Business Insider found via All Things D.

Whether you have no idea what Pinterest is and could use the explanation, or you just want to see Pinterest through the US military’s eyes, check out the slideshow below.

And if you feel like checking out the US Army’s own Pinterest account, here it is, complete with boards for Valentine’s Day, Training and Good Morale. (The US Marines Pinterest boards are here.)
