Pinterest is the king of image sharing

Pinterest has a reputation amongst some for being frivolous, fashion-related and overly female-focused.

We recommend the Pinterest Browser Extension: anything you find online you can pin to the board. We've collected together 50 brilliant Pinterest boards here.

09. Behance

One of the leading online platforms to showcase creative work, the Behance Mission statement is to empower the creative world to make ideas happen. It's also a great way to quickly get a portfolio together for potential clients. Read all our Behance-related articles here.
