Pinterest remains a top photo sharing site with 72.8 million users to date. Majority or 85 percent of users on the site are female and a large percentage or 47.1 million of users are in the U.S.

But while private individuals are mostly using Pinterest, businesses are not to be left behind. An estimated 500,000 business accounts currently exist on the platform and Nordstrom is the most engaged retail brand.

Sharing photos or pinning images on Pinterest is still an easy task to do. You can do it while logged in to your account or even while browsing websites without logging in to your account.

How to Install the Pinterest Browser Button

To make it easy for you to pin images from anywhere online, you just need to install the Pinterest browser button first. This is the latest update from the previous Pin It button that installs on your tool bar.
