Pinterest. Yes Or No?

How useful is Pinterest as a tool for research ?

I used Pinterest as an information resource when researching taxonomies and folksonomies, and found it to be useful as I was able to find the necessary information. I also found links to other websites and articles about the topic which helped broaden my knowledge on the matter.

Although I found Pinterest to be a useful resource I did encounter some minor issues such as: it’s more useful as an online bookmarking tool, rather than a primary source for information.

Overall, it’s safe to say that pinterest has its benefits but is best used as a storage place for all the interesting things you see online.
