I received an invite to Pinterest from a friend soon after it launched and at first there just wasn’t much there, but I kept coming back and have found it to be an invaluable resource for many things in my life. Not only do I find a lot of things there that I can share on my blog, I also have made lots of foods and crafts for my family with ideas that I saw on Pinterest. If you are thinking of joining Pinterest or want to learn more about the benefits of this social network, Pinterest For Dummies is a great place to start! It’s written by Kelby Carr and delves into both the basics of how to join and set up boards and progresses to finding friends and followers and emailing pins, and much more. There were also ideas that I hadn’t thought of, like creating a group board for an event and installing the iphone app for easy Pinterest browsing. If you use Pinterest as a way to get the word out about your business products and services, the author suggests not having more than 10% of your pins devoted to that purpose, or people may be uncomfortable with it. At the back of the book, there are profiles on ten companies who use Pinterest effectively for instance, Scholastic, Michael’s Craft Stores and Whole Foods. Some hallmarks of their good examples are following back, having pins from all over and pinning high quality pins. They also list many other businesses and pinners that have excellent boards and would be good to follow. I look forward to Pinterest overcoming its growing pains and adding extras like private boards and the ability to communicate easier with other pinners. But until then, Pinterest For Dummies is an excellent way to learn more about all the details of this massively popular and exciting social network.
