Jen Lee Reeves is AARP's social media trainer. — Ian Cunningham

I experienced that kind of situation a few years ago when my daughter was asked to be a flower girl in a wedding. The bride and I shared a Pinterest board where we could provide links to dresses we both liked for my daughter to wear.

In the end, we found the perfect dress, and now we have a neat collection of dresses on the Pinterest board. If you have a quilting circle, everyone can share ideas of designs or show off the pieces of work each person completed.

You can do a shared book board where everyone shares different book recommendations. You can brainstorm party planning or gift ideas with friends. There are limitless reasons to share a board with people you know.

If you are curious about how to share a Pinterest board, you can visit the TEK social media training page to learn the steps this takes.
