Pinterest is a social media tool that allows you to bookmark content around the web in a visually pleasing arrangement. In this course, author Justin Seeley illustrates the basics of setting up and managing a Pinterest account and explores ideas for finding inspiration. Fill out your profile, add friends, and start pinning. Discover how to share activity on Facebook and Twitter, add your own image and video pins, and plan for activities like a wedding or vacation. The course also covers pinning on the go with the iOS and Android apps.
In addition to repinning things on Pinterest, you can also express your interest or approval of things through comments and likes. So the first thing you need to do is find something on Pinterest that interests you and give your stamp of approval on it. So for instance, if I think this photograph here is nice, I can do one of two things: I can like it, which just basically tells the world that I've liked this, and you can see right there it has one Like now at the bottom; I can also add a comment to this. By clicking the Comment button, I am able to add a comment, and so I could say, "This is a nice shot...
Interesting angle," hit Comment and there we go. It's added. Each and every time a comment is posted, you'll see a new threaded comment down below. You can unlike things at any given time; however, you cannot remove your comments. So let's try this again. So let's say that I like this picture here. We'll go up to the top and I can like it. Again, that gives it a one-click stamp of approval. I can also comment: "Happy anniversary to you both!" click Comment, and there it is.
So as you continue to find interesting things on Pinterest, in addition to repinning them, you can also add your stamp of approval by liking them or adding a comment. This is a great way to start conversations on Pinterest and also a way to show people that you like their work without actually having to follow all of their boards or all of their posts. So, as you continue to explore, try using these two methods of interaction, and you'll be glad you did, because it's a great way to add more people to your social circle and a great way to interact with people as well.
