Teaching Thursday: Pinterest

Pinterest is an awesome social media site where you can ‘pin’ pictures from other websites in one convenient place. I have even been seeing some people saying that a Pinterest pin is worth more to a business than a Facebook like.

Here are some articles from around the web that I have found helpful for learning how to pin effectively:

What to Pin: 142 Pinterest Ideas for Entrepreneurs (Launch Grow Joy)

When to Pin: Why You Should Pin on Saturdays (Inspire to Thrive)

Private Pins: How to Create a Secret Pinterest Board (The Wonder of Tech)

Be aware that if you pin pictures from people who do not want you to pin their images, you may be violating their copyright. My personal rule of thumb is to never pin anything from a site without a pin button or a Pinterest profile link. If you just have to have a particular image from a site without either of those items, you can always contact the site and ask for permission to pin from their site.
