Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a new account, part of Learning Pinterest.
Before you can get started using Pinterest, you need to first join and create an account. …In previous times, you had to be invited to join Pinterest, but now Pinterest is open to everyone. …So once you access the site by going to www.pinterest.com, you can click the big red Join button at the top. …Once you click Join, you are going to be taken to this screen where it says Complete Step …1 of 2, Create your account to explore Pinterest. …Right off the bat it appears that you only have two options, using Facebook or Twitter to sign in. …However, if you look beneath that, there is actually a small window that says "or, sign …up with your email address." …So if you don't have a Facebook or a Twitter account or if you don't want to use your Facebook …or Twitter account to sign in to Pinterest, you can always use an email address down here at the bottom.…
I am going to use Facebook. …Once I click on the Facebook button, it's actually going to take me out to Facebook …and sign me in, and it's going to ask me to go to the app. …
