What’s the attraction, you may ask? It’s relaxing, some say. Like flipping through a deliciously divine magazine made up of everyone’s favorite pictures. It’s a great way to plan for a wedding, baby shower, design a new room in the house, share recipes, drool over shoes, and even shop for a new hairstyle or color. It’s like playing Go Fish, but no one ever runs out of cards. Use the word 'hair' in the search bar, and the world of hair is at your command, thousands of images of any image that has the word 'hair' in the caption will appear on the screen for your browsing enjoyment. Repin, like, or comment on any of them, and your followers, and the person who last pinned it, will see that you have done something with that pin.
There’s just one caveat: Pinterest warns users against copyright infringement. In other words, if you don’t have permission to post an image…don’t. If you do, you must credit the owner of the image, the website you got it from, the photographer, or you have to be the owner of it. And some images have been repinned so many times you'll have to go back to the original image to see who the credit goes to. Be sure to caption your pin properly with your name, or the name of the owner of the image, or the store it’s from, or your salon. CLICK HERE to read more about online copyright infringement.
There’s always a new way to reach out, and Pinterest looks like the best of them, so give it a try. Besides, Facebook is so 2004!
