Okay, dumb question time. I can't find the "follow" button. How do I follow folks on Pinterest?? Thanks!
When you click on a pin, the red follow button will show up.
You think that's a dumb question, Habee? I've been thinking what is pinterest?
Their search function ain't that hot either. Leastwise my stuff isn't showing up...
When you click on a person - there's a follow button right below their picture.
When I click on the "pin" buttom, says I can log in using Twitter. I do that and it says I don't have an account. I go to Twitter and it says the app for Pinterest is approved. I'm stuck. Any help please.
Check it out folks.
The comments were interesting as well.
Some people have absolutely no clue about copyright
I'm pinning only my own photos. That's okay, right?
Not sure if it's not having a clue or simply not caring! The modern teen and twenty year old thinks nothing of copying hundreds of songs, movies etc - sadly it's the way the world is going, and music companies are struggling with this rather than finding ways to monetize it! It's wrong I know - but it is the way of the world!
And the sublink, if you didn't already go there.

Well, if people are going to jail for violating copyright laws, the jails are going to be awfully crowded with 10 milion users!
"Sorry, Pinterest Users: Websites Can Now Block Pinning [VIDEO]
"Pinterest may be an Internet hit — especially with U.S. women and Facebook CEOs. But not all companies want to ride the pinboard wave of referral traffic.
Now Pinterest has released code for companies that want to block the pinning of content from their sites to personal pinboards."

Great news I think for such companies. I see by the comments that again, many pinners don't give a toss about copyright.
In particular, this section is exactly why those of us who want it to be optional do want it to be optional:
Pinterest is moving towards correcting these flaws. Pinterest is currently following the Digital Millenmium Copyright Act, and will remove any image that someone claims is violating copyright laws.
"In addition, Pinterest is letting publishers embed a “Pin It” button directly on their website, which is a virtual permission slip for people to share content"
That has been the claim of us who are worried about the button all along if we want to back a DMCA claim. And here is proof that this was what the intention of that button is.
At the same time, hubbers who want the button would have the button. Both sides happy.
It sounded like this was a way to keep anything from being "pinned," which also I took as if someone had added the PIN button to their browser, they still could Not pin!!!
I hope This is what Hubpages will add to our profiles to choose, or just taking the Pin button off our page does not stop the issue altogether.
What I beleive they are trying is using
<meta name=”Pinterest” content =”no pin”/>
per subdomain - this should allow you to opt-out of being pinned regardless of how someone does it.
HP is testing this - but is not sure whether sub-domains are recognised as separate sites on Pinterest.
That is a good idea, I wonder if it works on people's blogs?

I just joined Pinterest. With Twitter, people who follow you get your tweet in their newsfeed. I follow some people on Pinterest but do not see how that helps me to see their pins. Also when I get an email from Pinterest that someone is following me, does that mean that they follow one of my boards...

I always use visual watermarks with all my online photos. I don't feel comfortable using my photos online without them. Almost all my photos that transferred over have them. I heard that photos with watermarks might be removed because they're not allowed. What is...

Dear Precious Followers,I have, what some of you might see as a stupid question, but I need to ask it anyway.When I am ready to hit the "publish now" button on a finished hub, and I hit the "White H on black background" button to the left, do I get a notice from HP stating...

HubPages is very firm in their rule to only use photos for which you have permission to use. Hypothetically, what happens if you break this rule? I've seen many people using images that are clearly not theirs to use and I was just wondering if this affects them in any way...

I managed to pin one of my hubs on Pinterest a while ago, but today when I tried to pin another I got this message: "Sorry! We blocked this link because it may lead to spam." Could it be because this hub is on kindredbond and not Hubpages? Has this happened to anyone else? I'm...

We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to HubPages, already substantially larger than Twitter and Reddit. Maddie wrote a...
