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.
Unlike Facebook, there is no way to automatically share the activity that you have on Pinterest with Twitter; however, there is a way that you can share individual aspects of your Pinterest activity on Twitter, and I am going to show you how to do that in this movie. So let's say that we have a Pinterest pin that we wish to share on Twitter. In order to do that, we are first going to have to access the pin, so I will do that by clicking any number of the pins that I have here. Once I click that, it'll highlight it in its own lightbox. And I will just pause this video from playing for a moment. And on the right hand side, you are going to see several sharing options for this pin.
If you're logged in on Facebook, you will be able to like this and it will then post to your Facebook Timeline. You can also tweet it, which is what we're talking about here. And by clicking Tweet, it's actually going to launch a Twitter window where you can share a link with your followers. And basically this says, "This Premiere Pro CS6 tutorial describes how to use the Mercury Playback Engine to work in real time and speed performance." Basically, this takes the description of the pin, which is located right down here underneath it, and also a link to the Pinterest, and then it says it's via @Pinterest.
If you want to give credit to Pinterest, you can, by leaving that on there, or you can simply mouse over that and delete it. Now you can see here that it has actually exceeded the 140-character limit of Twitter, so I would have to actually go in and sort of rethink what this says. And so I would actually just change this to say, "Check out this tutorial that I found on Pinterest." There we go, and then I would tweet it out. Once I do that, it has been posted to Twitter.
I can right-click here, choose Open in New Window to view this on Twitter, and there you see it, "Check out this tutorial I found on Pinterest," with a link to the pin. If I close this, it goes back to where I was, and it also suggests that follow Pinterest on Twitter. If you want to follow Pinterest on Twitter, you can, or you can simply click close and the window will close and take you right back to Pinterest. If you wish to escape this Lightbox mode, simply click away from the pin and it will automatically exit you and take you back to your main dashboard.
So hopefully by now, you have an understanding of how you can share your activity via Twitter and why you would want to do so.
