Creating a Pinboard
Making your own pinboard is probably one of the first things you'll do on Pinterest. Whether you're using Pinterest to organize the things you find online or to share some of your favorite stuff with other people, Pinterest makes it easy to start pinning. To create a new pinboard, go to your profile page, then select Create a board.
Once you've created a board, you're ready to start adding pins! There are several different ways to add a pin to a board. In our opinion, the easiest method is the Pin It button. This is a special button you can add to your web browser. Watch this video from Pinterest to learn how to install the Pin It button and add pins from the Web.
As you saw in the video above, installing the Pin It button is pretty simple. Just go to this page and click Install Now.
Whenever you see something on the Web that you want to pin, click the Pin It button and select the image you want.
Next, choose the desired board, add some information, and click Pin It.
That's it! The pin will be added to your board, and the people who are following you on Pinterest will see the pin on their homepages.
As we mentioned above, there are a few other ways to add pins to your pinboards. To get started, select the desired board, then choose Add a Pin.
If you want to pin something from a specific webpage, select The web.
You can then can copy and paste the website's URL and choose the image you want.
If you want to pin a picture from your computer, select Your computer. You can then locate and select the file to upload it to Pinterest. Keep in mind that an uploaded pin won't automatically include a link to another website, although you can choose to add one manually.
Pinterest has faced some serious criticism with respect to copyright law. The issue lies in the fact that many pins are not accurately linked to their original sources. You can prevent this by making sure your pins always link to their sources, which gives credit to the original content creator. And if you're posting your own original content, keep in mind that it is especially easy for people to copy and repost images on Pinterest. We recommend including a link to your personal website when posting original content. To learn more about copyright on Pinterest, check out its Copyright page.
