  • Search for something relevant to your focus or task
  • Pin it on an appropriate board
  • Follow the board suggestion 


I find that I am spending less time unfollowing boards that are irrelevant to my interests. This method also ensures that my timeline is full of interesting content that I would possibly never find by following just my friends from Facebook and Twitter (as per the suggestions provided by Pinterest).
