Pinterest is growing… but are you using it well? There are a few main etiquette based tips to help you get the most out of this social media platform.
Make sure that every single thing you pin leads back to the original site where the photo or article came from. This is really important as it looks like Pinterest is setting itself up to rival Google as a search engine in the future – so do yourself a favour and make sure you have quality there right now.
Like almost anything, when something becomes popular, clones begin to appear. On behalf of pretty much all Pinterest users everywhere, please make sure that your pin doesn’t link to another pinning site. And yes, this is kind of a duplicate of the first bit of advice, but it is very important. Not to mention very frustrating when you come across it!
If you pin from a site like Tumblr, make sure that you use the permalink, not the feed.

This also goes for blogs – even if the full post is visible on the home page of the blog, make sure you click on the link to that specific post before pinning it.
These small tips will not only help you become a good Pinterest user, but viewed as a high quality one as well.
