If you pin a pin that you think a friend on Pinterest would like, simply type @ and that person’s name. That person will see a notification in their @Mentions and be able to view the pin you want her to see.
Describe your pin the best you can. Use as many key words as possible. When people search Pinterest, they will never see your awesome rainbow cake recipe if all you write in the description is “yum!” Instead, say something like “yummy rainbow cake recipe from (website)”. It’s always great to add the source to a pin as well. It’s just a nice thumbs up to the creator or originator.
How do you follow people?
You can search and follow people based on their Facebook name. You can also choose to follow all of their boards or just selected ones. See a board or member whose pins you admire? Go ahead and follow. It is not unusual to follow or be followed by people you don’t know.
