I have watched Jay´s webinars on Pinterest and I should probably remember this, but I am nevertheless asking. How can I use other Pinterest users pin from my own Pinterest account? Can I publish them again from my own accounts and is it even allowed?

I am asking as since sometimes I comeover some really great pins that I would love to publish again on Pinterest. I expect that if this is allowed you have to make sure that you credit the user that originally posted the pin

Pinterest is complex. There are a lot of terms that we need to be familiar with.

1) save pin: you just save it on your board. You can download the pics and edit if it does not violate the copyright.

2) repin: it means "share", that it is from your account but the contents keep the original source, meaning it does not drive to your website. While from each pin you repin, you can see the stats such as impression, save, repin by others.

3) Create pin; it is definitely your original pins and driving back to your website. etc.. I write down the image credit, if I use public source in my website blog, facebook, instagram... or use Canva free source...

For me, the first day I used Pinterest, I created 10-15 boards, saving the popular pins the system recommended. I got 12K impression.

And now, I use tailwind to schedule 10 pins each day, 5 pins originally from my Instagram I created, and drive back to my Instagram account. Other 5 pins I Repin from others.

I am still diving in Pinterest. Hopefully it can help you and correct me if I am wrong.

Thats good. Tailwind is very useful for the niche of MMO. I also registered Tailwind for my Instagram but use it for free. Thats the reason I can create pin driving back to my Instagram.

That is good way for exposure of your other social accounts.

You can repin it on your site.
But you can’t take the credit for it

You can repin any pin you find on Pinterest. If you come across it on a website there are browser extensions and sharing buttons that ask you if you want to pin that picture. They WANT you to do so.

But don't steal a pin and create it to link to your website. Just pin it from their website or repin it from Pinterest. You're supposed to do that.

Thank you for the answer. That was what I seem to remember form Jay´s webinar. I just wanted to know if I could repin others pins, and of course not stealing others work. You have answerd perfectly to my question. My intention is to help others, that will help my as well.

Thanks a lot😊

I was just covering all possible answers as I wasn't sure what type of pinning you were talking about. :)

just looking at this now so yes you can collaborate , if you click on your board profile pic there with be a + sign next to it , you can add people. The directions and help are also there on what you can and can't do. Just reading now when you posted! Sounds like a good way to grow, but just learning it now.

I would not take another persons pin and repin it. That would mean u have to redo it and post it with your business account info attached. You can make one similar and post it to your account.

You can save theirs to your boards as is.

There is no purpose in posting their exact content as others can come to your board and save it to their own boards.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for sharing your views on this, Laura. It is highly appreciated :-)

To me repinning is just the same as re-tweeting, sharing FB posts, Instagram posts, Webtalk posts, Reddit etc. If you repin a pin, you don´t need to add your own business info on it. As far as I have understood you can just leave that information out, and let the pin be as it is.

By repinning, you are actually helping the other persons reach on Pinterest to expand also to your own followers.
