Another way to explain it is to compare it to your "Favorites" gallery here on SCS. You know how you post cards you love to your Favorites gallery so you can go back and look at them anytime you want? That's the concept of Pinterest -- different lingo. On Pinterest you "pin" (post) cards to your "boards" (galleries -- you can have as many as you want, different categories, not just one). The things you pin are automatically linked to the source they actually came from, so you can go back and check out the blog or website that they came from anytime -- because it's saved to your board! It's brilliant! And that's just the beginning. The thing that makes it so much fun is that you can see other peoples "Favs" (boards) now! Haven't you always wondered what other people are putting into their Favs and wonder if you're missing something awesome??? Well, now you have access to anyone's boards. And they can see yours. And if you see something you like in their gallery (their board), you can pin it to your own gallery (board). And you can follow that board if you want. It goes on and on, and you will figure out how to follow just specific categories of stuff (recipes, craft things, jewelry, baby things, etc.). It's very easy. Even Paula Dean has boards out there!!

I spent 3 1/2 hours playing on pinterest last night! Anne, you should write their advertising, you did an excellent job explaining it.
Thanks

I just got my invite today after signing up on the site (should have read this thread earlier!) and I love, love, love it! It is totally addictive.

I don't have much right now, but:

I'm not sure if she is an SCS'er or not, but check out the Pins and Boards of Anna Luke of Toronto, Ontario:

Anna Luke (anneke003) on Pinterest

I don't know this lady but I like her style and the way she thinks. I'll be definitely re-orging some of my Boards to make similar categories.

Post #167 above has a really good explanation of it. It is basically a visual way to bookmark things - a specific picture on a page versus using your bookmarks or favourites in your internet browser.

A pin is the equivalent of ripping a picture from a magazine, and putting it on a cork board at home. In the electronic world, once I pin a picture on my board, you can copy (or repin) it to your own board.

I hope this helps.

You need someone to invite you to jump the queue. I did your route and it took two days before I got on. PM me your email and I'll send you an invite if you like.

Lydia,

I've noticed this happening as well. They seem to be pins on sites such as from Better Homes & Gardens. I wonder if they move/change their links for some reason.

I found an example by a random google search. Go to:

hope & glory (hopeglorynz) on Pinterest

Look at two boards on the bottom of the page, one is "The Holmwoods House" and the "photo of a pin" shows up on the second row of the preview of the board. The other is "Table Settings" at the very bottom and the second and third pin on the first line of the preview are these "photo of a pin".

When you click on them, some work and take you to a picture and some don't.

Yep - I've had that happen too - it's weird. It only started in about the last month.

Some of the ones on my boards were photos from my blog or Splitcoast so they're not changing. I think it's a change at Pinterest that broke something.

They definitely broke something that worked before I ever joined. I see on Facebook that there is a Pinterest App that doesn't seem to be working. When you click on it, it just pops you back to the main wall on their FB page. Must be some gremlins there too

I think I broke it with all my "liking" - ok I am a "liking demon" there is no other word for it but then I go and look at it closer and decide which board or to discard. Is this poor Pinterest etiquette? I'm not really "unliking" but it says I am I just want to tidy up my likes and board them.

ha!! I'm with you. In the beginning I would follow all boards of people I was following, but I've pruned that a bit. I really like crafty & art & recipe & science boards so that's all I have focused on lately.

I actually really like that there's no notification when someone unfollows a board etc. - sort of takes that social media "dis" out of just a preference. It's a polite venue
