Join Bobby Owsinski for an in-depth discussion in this video Pinterest overview, part of Pinterest for Musicians and Bands.
Pinterest allows you to save and categorize images of things…that you like, which are called Pins, even when you're browsing.…This process of selecting or uploading a pin is called Pinning.…You don't have to log on to Pinterest in order to pin something that…you like from a site, because this can be handled using a browser applet.…You pin things to folders that have a common theme called Pinboards or boards.…Every time you pin something, it shows a link…of where the pin came from, which can be a good…way to get traffic if you pin your own site's graphics.…
Boards can be either public or secret, which means that…anything you post there won't show up anywhere else on Pinterest.…This means that you can use a Secret Board for collaboration, planning…events, strategizing, or just keeping things to a limited number of people.…Just like other social networks, you can…follow people and use keywords and trending item…hashtags just like you do on Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus.…You can also link your Pinterest account…
