Trick Out Your Pinterest Board

By Posted in - Social Media + Influencer Engagement on February 27th, 2012

This More Monday post brought to you by Clairemont intern, Margot Horgan. As an early adopter and prolific user of Pinterest, today Margot tells us what more we can do with our Pinterest boards. Fun stuff!

As more uses for Pinterest emerge, Mashable recently gave its readers a quick tutorial on how Pinterest users can trick out their boards. By taking a photo and cutting it up into nine different squares, users can create a mosaic-like effect on their boards. For more instructions on how to “hack” your boards, check out this article. Below, we have posted some of our favorite Pinterest hacks from business and social users that were uploaded to Mashable.

User Tyler Cheese hacked his boards to create a Pinterest resume, with different boards for his education, experience and portfolio. What does everyone think? Would you create a Pinterest resume?

    Agreed. One of the most important things about Pinterest is linking your pins back to the original source so other pinners can check out the website or blog you visited. Nothing bothers me more than clicking on a pin and finding out that it has not been hyperlinked! I think Tyler should have linked his pins for his education and work experience, and most definitely should have linked his portfolio samples back to his personal blog or even his linkedin account (assuming he had his writing samples on there). I think not effectively/correctly using a social media site does not highlight one’s skills as a “social media junkie”!

    Wow! Tyler Cheese’s tricked out boards are incredibly clever. However, I think he should have taken each block and linked it to something important and relevant to what might be in the photo (maybe his own personal website or articles he likes or clients’ websites). Hmmm.
