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.
If you're not sure on what you need to do when you're creating boards or adding pins, it's a good idea to take a look at your friends' boards to see what they find interesting and what type of boards they are creating. So in this movie I am going to show you how to explore the various boards that your friends have created. The first thing you need to do is go to your Pinterest page. You can do that by clicking your name in the top-right corner of the site. That takes you to your profile page, and then you can see the people that you're following over here on the right. If you want to explore their boards, simply click their name and that will take you to their profile page.
As you scroll down, you'll see all of the different boards that you have available to you. If you wish to explore a board, you can simply click the board name and then you'll be able to see all of the pins that are associated with this board. If you want to go back to the person's profile, just click their name at the top and it goes back. If you'd like to explore another board, click on it and it will take you here. So again, my suggestion is to explore your friends' boards, see what they're creating, how they're creating it, and the descriptions that you're using as well.
For instance this one is a board about typography and the description says, "This board contains examples of great typography and design that I find randomly around the web. It will also be used as a source of inspiration for my future projects." That's a really good description. It tells me what the board is, what it does, and what it's going to be used for. So as you start to create your boards, go around, explore what other people are doing, and they'll give you the inspiration you need to start aggregating all of your thoughts and ideas on Pinterest as well.
