How to Pin on Pinterest

How to pin on Pinterest This summer Pinterest surpassed 10 million users, making it the fastest social site to ever cross the 10M mark. In today’s blog post I’ll show you how to pin on Pinterest.

Pinterest is built around pinboards, which are thematic collections of images– or pins  –shared with the Pinterest community.  Like Twitter and Facebook, users can follow each other or simply browse one another’s boards.

Sharing an image (or pinning) is easy, and there are a few ways I can show you how to pin on Pinterest:

  • Copy the URL of the page containing the image you want to pin
  • Click the Add button at the top of any Pinterest page
  • Copy the URL into the text box and click “Find images”

  • Write a quick description and assign it to a pinboard

This technique is called repining.

I really like Pinterest but I have really only been repinning for the most part and I rarely write a description. Thanks for this information. I would like to do more with it.
