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 creating your own pins on Pinterest, you can also repin things that you find interesting that other people are posting. When you find something on Pinterest that you think is interesting and you'd like to save that for later on one of your personal boards, all you have to do is find that item, find the Repin section, and click it. Once you click the Repin button, the pin is automatically going to jump into Lightbox mode. You'll be able to tell Pinterest where you want to put this pin, so you choose one of your boards or create a new one.
Once you click Create, the board is created and it will be listed there. Let's say, for instance, that I wanted to create one here called Photography. I'll create it. I now have that board. I can then change the description of this if I want to, and then I can click Pin It. It tells me that it's been repinned to Photography and shared with my followers. To exit this just simply click outside of it and you return back. Nothing changes here necessarily, but if I go back to my profile, you'll see I have a new board called Photography and I have one pin inside of it.
If someone finds this interesting, they can repin it to their profile, and so forth. So basically, repinning is a way of resharing things that you find interesting that either other people have posted or if you put it in one board and you want to repin it to another, that's how you get the same pin into multiple boards, simply by repinning it to a different location. So as you continue to explore Pinterest and start to find interesting things, use the Repin feature to save those items for later on your own personal pinboards.
