Please be aware that pinning a photo from a hub that you have the legal right to use is technically a breach of copyright unless you pin from the ORIGINAL source.
And it's important to read the Pinterest ToS carefully - they tell you that you must have all rights to post the photo and that they retain all rights to use or sell the photo as they wish plus more....
I just started Pinterest too. It's fun putting all my favorites in a visual place instead of just as a bookmark. I think it's a great idea. I haven't thought much about any revenue side of it - yet. But I'm sure I will lol.
I just signed up for Pinterest a few days ago but didn't start pinning until this evening. I pinned two of my travel hubs about an hour ago and one has already been re-pinned by someone I do not know that isn't following me and I'm not following them.
If that's any sign of what's to come, I think I'm going to like it!
PS: Anyone want to be buddies on there? My user name on there is laniericketts. I don't have much on there yet but just like everything else, it takes time and I'm always willing to help out a fellow Hubber!
Pinterest is a lot like Twitter in that regard. It doesn't matter how many followers you have it's about using hashtags (or in Pinterest's case, choosing good categories) so everyone in that section, no matter who they are, can see what you pin.
I did not know that! I don't quite understand the Pinterest site yet. I thought that re-pinning someone else's pin would help them out but if everyone can see it, then I guess it really doesn't matter. That explains how that person snapped up and re-pinned that hub so fast. I was wondering how it happened but was actually glad to see it.
hahaha! I so don't get pinterest yet have to admit it has a plethora of fascinating and inspiring creative pins. I wish I understood it more....I'll have to look yours up..hmmm If I can figure it out and find my around that is!
I love the way you have yours on your profile. I got Pinterest on my profile, but mine is not as neat and nice as yours. I don't follow you when you say to link some keywords instead of the entire url. You lost me.
1. Type the words you want to turn into a link - such as "My Gardening Site". 2. Highlight those words with your mouse. 3. Click the link tool (looks like a chain icon). 4. In the popup box insert the URL address of your site. 5. Click ok and you should have a link.
I checked your cartoon, it's neat. And the link with Pinterest is interesting. Sure you can write brilliant words (and you can), but a neat, eye-catching picture and a pithy caption can work on Pinterest.
It's interesting which pictures work and which don't. I'm playing with it in the hope of finding out.
One more thing. What I really like about Pinterest is the feedback element. Either they like it, or they ignore it. There's no faffing around with social niceties.
