Ever since the bygone days of the Wild West, folks have always wanted to check out the newcomer in town and hear all the latest gossip before they got better acquainted. These days Pinterest, the fastest drawing social media network in history, has everyone eyeing it with curiosity and just a little trepidation. They wonder if it will settle down — or become another in a long line of drifters who pass through town. Before you take the trouble to get acquainted with this newcomer, allow me to share some insider tips about how to make the most of your Pinterest experience.

I’ll also caution you to keep your eyes and ears open because social networks have a habit of changing things up just as you get comfortable around them. You’ve always got to keep your wits about you.

The good

  • Pinterest is informal, which makes it a great place to unwind and take in the sights.
  • Pinterest is a great way to get to know people better by their taste in food, decor and fashion. Now I can bond with people I met at conferences over designer shoes neither of us can afford.

The bad

  • Understand that everything you share could go viral. If it does, you probably won’t get credit for the image unless you cleverly watermark in a way that can’t be cropped. When I share my travel pictures, it’s because I want to share my love of Paris, not because I expect to get photo credit.
