Finding time to extend your presence on the web today probably means finding time to explore Pinterest. Now that Pinterest has addressed the copyright concerns that had made many people understandably nervous, it appears that for many people, pinning has resumed!
Pinterest continues to be one of the fastest-growing social networking sites – currently in third place behind Facebook and Twitter. And now, developers are creating all sorts of applications that can help you pin more easily, find people with similar interests more quickly, and analyze your Pinterest influence. All of these enhancements are interesting and helpful – and they can be crucial if you are interested in using Pinterest for your business.
As with Twitter and Facebook, wading through the sea of tools and applications to find the ones that will work best for you can be daunting. That’s why I wanted to share two articles that I recently found. They highlight some particularly useful Pinterest applications and tools. If you’re using Pinterest, these posts are definitely worth taking a look at. As a time-saver, you might consider focusing on the tools that are mentioned in both articles:
- From Mashable, take a look at a slideshow presenting “7 Useful Pinterest Tools to Supercharge Your Pinfluence” – an article by Amy-Mae Elliott
