When I first heard about Pinterest, I did not know what to expect but it has really taken off and now holds a large part in social media. Thanks to the author and Global Influence, I had the opportunity to review Pinterest for Dummies.

My Thoughts:

This is a great source for learning how to use the newest social crave. the book will show you how to set up your profile, boards and how to share your "Pins" with your friends.  I was a bit confused in the beginning but the book has made Pinterest very easy to use. There are so many ways to use the sites and you can link the site with Twitter, and Facebook so your pins can be shared and you can follow new members. I especially liked the chapter on etiquette because there are rules to be followed so everyone can benefit from the service. So if you are confused get yourself a copy and you will become a pro in no time.

    I boosted the blog (#651) I think :)

  2. I haven't tried Pinterest yet so I don't have an issue. I do know that eventually I'm going to give in so I'm going to be lost off the bat with something new. :)
