I am obsessed with Pinterest. There's so many different things on there that inspire me! I'll be looking through everyone's pinboards! Here's a link to mine if anyone is interested: Stacey Brucale (xxsquigglesxx) on Pinterest
I love Pinterest too! So many great ideas out there and a great way to organize them all. I even found my Christmas card that I posted on SCS on there. It was using the Frostyville memory box die cut. I was very surprised to stumble across it on Pinterest.
Question--has anyone pinned a youtube video before? I tried my Pin It button, and it couldn't find a video or big enough image on the page (really?). I couldn't find anything on the Pinterest site to help me, and I sent them an email, but who knows when I will hear back. TIA!
Question--has anyone pinned a youtube video before?
Pinterest had set up a way to pin a YouTube video, but YouTube changed something and broke it. That happens frequently - I had a program that let me download videos but it needed to be upgraded regularly because of changes in YouTube which stopped it working.
I found an entry on the pinterest blog &, in the comments, there was a discussion about this.
One user found a way to create a pin by starting the video & pausing it a couple of seconds in - once an image appeared. It looks like the 1 or 2 seconds of blank screen at the start of most videos prevents Pinterest from "seeing" the video. He had a detailed work around that worked for some (but not all). I'll look for it and post it here if I find it.
Go down to the comments and find one by Zach - currently it's the first one - and there is his workaround.
If you're interested in finding out a little more about how Pinterest works (including functions not included on the Help page) look over at the column on the left of the page, at the top, where it has a grouping "categories". Click on "Site features and tips".
I heart pinterest because it lets you save the images that strike your fancy, create different boards, and also share them with others. Much better than a bookmark in that you can access it from anywhere as long as you remember your password.
As someone already stated, Pinterest is Visual! I am so very visual that it makes all the difference in the world.
Along with that, when I bookmark a page I don't remember why I bookmarked it and it wouldn't make sense to bookmark it more than once.
With Pinterest I can pin multiple things from the same site and yet they are individual and can be put on different boards.
I can't imagine ever using bookmarks again!
