Pinterest Glossary

There’s a lot if interest in Pinterest, and I’m sure I’m not the first blogger to say that. But it is true; Pinterest is the new buzzword in social media, even though it has been around for nearly 2 years now.

Below I’ve prepared a glossary of terms, enjoy.

The Pinterest Glossary

Pins – Pins are images from around the web or those uploaded from your PC that are then added to Pinterest.

Boards – Boards are collections of pins. Just like a noticeboard in your office, it can have lots of Pins attached to them. Boards are sorted into subjects like architecture, cars, weddings, interiors or brands.

Repin – To repin on Pinterest is to copy a Pin to a different board, such as one you have created yourself, you could move a lovely plant from a board called ‘Green things’ to your own board called ‘For my garden’.

Like – You also have the option to “like” a pin. When you “like” an image it is added to the Likes section of your profile, but is not added to one of your boards or shared with your followers.

Pinner – A pinner is a user of Pinterest.

Follow a pinner – On a user’s profile you can either follow just one of that Pinner’s boards by clicking the “follow” button at the bottom of the board. Or if you’d like to follow everything a user pins, click the “follow all” button under their profile picture.

Mention a pinner – Just like Twitter, you can mention fellow Pinterest users in the comments of your pins by using the @ symbol and the username of the pinner you want to mention.

And of course, follow me on Pinterest here.

  27. Things i have observed in terms of computer system memory is always that there are specifications such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must fit in with the technical specs of the mother board. If the computer’s motherboard is pretty current and there are no computer OS issues, replacing the memory literally takes under an hour or so. It’s one of the easiest laptop upgrade procedures one can imagine. Thanks for discussing your ideas.

Make sure one’s mother board can handle the upgrade quantity, as well. Interesting blog post.
