If you love organization (and I know all you Wrikers do), then you'll probably enjoy Pinterest. Users organize cool images, articles, and more into boards of related information. Our recent "11 Ways to Use Social Media to find PM Resources" blog post tells you HOW to find great project management resources on the social media site, but now we're taking it a step further. Here's a list of our favorite project management-related Pinterest boards to check out when we want to find new PM strategies, awesome infographics, project management images or PM humor on those days that just need a laugh.
