Pinterest - the social media app that’s full of hopes, dreams, and “someday.”  If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then you’re late to the game.  The social media site that allows individuals to store and manage images.  It’s the modern day equivalent of leafing through magazines, ripping out pages and sticking them in a binder.  With this technological reincarnation, all these images are available at your fingertips as you shop and socialize!   But before you attempt this daring, new form of scrapbooking, you’ve got to learn the lingo:

 

1. A Pin - This is a post shared on Pinterest. A Pin can be added from a website using the 'Pin It' button, or you can upload images from your computer. Each Pin added using the 'Pin It' button links back to the site it came from. So, if you’re on Whooptee.com and want to “remember” a certain product, scroll over the image and click the Pin It icon.

 

2. A Board - This a collection of Pins centered around a topic. For example you could have a 'custom shirt' board which is filled with pictures of vintage t-shirts, color palettes and inspired quotes.

 

3. Follower - This means an account on Pinterest has chosen to follow your Pins or particular Board.  When people like what you Pin, they want to see more!

 

4. Following - “Following All” means you'll have all of a user’s Pins on all their Boards shown to you in real-time on Pinterest on your timeline/stream. You can follow individual Boards if you're only interested in seeing a user's Pins to specific Boards. You can unfollow Boards and users at any time: they will not be notified. So if you like the custom apparel options on a particular board for Whooptee1, then you can add it.                                                           

 

5. Repin - A Repin is adding a Pin you found while browsing Pinterest to your own Board. When you Repin an image, the user who first pinned the image will also get credit. Repins maintain the source-link of the image no matter how many times it’s repinned.  When you’re looking group t-shirts, type it in the search bar, refine and repin what you like!

 

6. Like - This is the same concept used on Facebook and other social networking sites like Instagram. A “like” will show the user you approve of their Pin, but will not place it on your own Boards like a 'Repin' does.
