Have you ever been on a website or blog, clicked a “Pin It” icon or button somewhere on the page, and not been able to pin the photo you wanted to pin?
This happens to me all the time. And this month, when working on the project I shared last week, I re-discovered something I thought worth sharing:
For pinning, nothing beats using the REAL Pin It button from the Pinterest Development Team.
Why? Because (a) it’s consistent (you know exactly where to click the bookmark or access the browser plugin/extension) and (b) it will let you select any photo on the page for pinning. Making a habit of just using the REAL Pin It Button avoids a do-over. Or several do-overs. Not that I’m speaking from experience.
If you’re a Pinterest user and aren’t yet using their “REAL” button, give it a try! Head over to the Pinterest “Goodies” page and click on the browser extension just below the “Apps” section at the top. (If you don’t want to bother with the browser extension, just click the “Pinterest Bookmarklet” link and you’ll have a bookmark option instead.)
How about you?
