What is Pinterest? What's the buzz about Pinterest?
Pinterest is the newest and a great way to share images. Like Facebook, Pinterest is where users meet each other, like their “pins”, engage with the community and have loads of fun sharing their pins. Pinterest is an image-sharing social network where users share pictures on their virtual pin boards.
What is allowed to share?
Copyright-free images you own or have permission to use. Each image you share can be attached to a board you create. For example, if you have a picture of your favorite food recipe, you can upload it directly to Pinterest and then choose it to fall on a board named “My Favorite Foods and Recipes” or similar. If you want to share your photo of a recent trip, then you can create another board named “Awesome places to see” and share photos with your followers.
Who are followers?
Followers are those who follow your pins i.e. the pictures you upload on Pinterest. Followers can be anyone – your friends, your family members, colleagues, your boss or even the persons you do not know.
What about privacy issues?
Don’t share pictures you don’t want to share, and your privacy is safe. Pinterest is not like Facebook where only your friends can see your posts, photos and information. Pinterest is absolutely transparent and you just share pictures and some basic information about your Twitter account, your websites (if you have any) or your blogs. If you don’t want to share your personal information, then don’t!
