With boards ranging from “Social Media” to “Humor”, any PR pro can appreciate these boards.

Following PR Daily is a great way to have a little bit of news on your home page.

This wife and mother from Georgia shows you the ways of ultimate organization. PR is one of the top ten most stressful jobs, and organization is key. Without it, stress levels will be on the rise. The most helpful boards for PR pros would be “productivity” and “goals & planning.” Follow and pin for a little peace of mind, and an organized life.

3. Scripps PRSSA (scrippsprssa). Our own Scripps PRSSA chapter, pins everything and anything a PR pro could PRSSAever need. From social media to interview questions, using Pinterest for business and how to stay healthy, Scripps PRSSA has a board for it.

4. Funny or Die (funnyordie). Who doesn’t need a comic relief every once and a while? This website’s Pinterest is just that. Ran by Will Ferrell’s production company, you can always count on a laugh from these pins. Over 8,000 FUNNYorDiefollowers come to Funny or Die for cute animals, celebrity jokes and Pinterest’s latest update: GIFs. Made from a series of animated photos or short video clips, GIFs are just what Pinteresters everywhere needed. Funny or Die’s GIFs range from a dog riding a turtle (quite adorably) to overly invested sports fan and their reactions, all funny might I add. How can you not follow something Will Ferrell is producing?

5. Social Media Today (socialmedia2day). Clearly a favorite in the public relations world, social media is SOC2DAYextremely important. Social media technologically drives our ever-evolving career path, and thus Social Media Today has made a Pinterest.
