    What is Pinterest?

Pinterest

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the stunnnig things you find on the web. People use pinboards to show off their jewellery designs and their craft ideas as well as a number of other things.
You could use Pinterest as a tool to organize special events such as weddings or you could use it as a mood board to help you decorate your home. We’ve also seen that plenty of people have been using Pinterest as a virtual recipe book where they have organized all their favourite recipes.

More excitingly, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started, request an invite.

You can upload your own pictures on to a pinboard or if you like the look of someone else’s picture you can repin it onto your board!

The ‘repin’ button looks like this Repin button

Here at Beads Direct we love it so much we have now installed a ‘pin it’ button on all of our products and designs. Which means if like the look of any of our products or tutorials you can simply click on the pin it button and that item will show up on one of your pinboards.Pin it button

Give Pinterest a go! We’re all very addicted!
Please note, that if you want to be a part of Pinterest you have to request to join and it may take a few days for Pinterest to get back to you. It is definitely worth the wait.

  1. I don’t know if they have changed their T&C yet, but there is an awful lot of concern over them, particularly from photographers. They state that by pinning something on the board you assume ownership. The site also has some other questionable practices.

    Such a shame as I found articles & blogs I have not come across before, but morally not sure I can continue to use it.
