Getting Started With Your Pinterest Account
Pinterest is one of the growing social networking websites that has really exploded recently. More people are joining daily, adding their RSS feeds to their pins, and spreading the word about what they’re up to. In fact, Pinterest is getting so popular that Apple has actually acquired the Pinterest software for their iPhone and iPod, meaning that not only can the savvy consumer hunt and pin items from their home computer, but also access these high profile boards in the privacy of their own home.
There are a variety of reasons to get yourself signed up for a Pinterest account. You may want to promote a certain business or service, or simply keep up with your favorite recipes. With the many different types of pins available, there is sure to be a board for just about any interest. Here’s a quick rundown of the different types of Pinterest boards you may want to familiarize yourself with:
The first two tabs on the left side of the Pinterest home page are called “pins” and “boards”. The pins tab contains lists of the most popular Pins, as well as boards created by other users. When you go to a new Pinterest board, you’ll see a small list of recent additions and scrolling to the right will take you to the latest pins. New pins are always listed among the most popular ones, making it very easy to stay current on what’s hot and happening with your favorite causes.
The third tab on the Pinterest home page is called “boards”. This board is divided into several topics, such as beauty, fitness, and gardening. Using the left and right arrows on the board will scroll you to upcoming boards on a topic, and by following along in the feed, you can keep track of all the recipes and articles you’re interested in at any time.
The fourth tab, called the “media library” contains all of your latest Pins, as well as links to all of your most popular posts and pages. The media library makes it easy to find any information you need, so that you don’t have to dig through your Pins or feeds to find what you want. The folders and boards in this section make it easy to organize your media library, too. You can move items from one folder to another, sort them, or delete items. All of this is extremely convenient and very helpful for anyone starting out an event marketing campaign on this social media site.
To access your pins, first click on the top right corner of the Pinterest home page, where the “Pinterest” button is located. This will open a new window, which displays your pin board. Under the” Pinterest” menu, click “pin” and a new drop down menu will appear. Select “board” to open the board viewer, and click on the various tabs to navigate through your pins.
From the board cover, click on the “pin it” button, and your pins will be listed in this order. If you have multiple boards and folders, this process is even easier! Click on the appropriate board cover, and your link should be posted there. If you have questions or comments about how to use this service, you’ll find answers on the Pinterest help area.
