Pinterest has just introduced a new feature called communities. It is their way of making Pinterest social. We have long thought of Pinterest as a search engine much like Google and it still is but now you can get social by joining and creating communities.

Pinterest wants us to communicate more and to be honest this is a brilliant way to market your own business, website and blog.

It doesn’t matter whether you just join in on other people’s communities conversations or create your own. Leaving your own links is allowed and as long as you are not spamming you will be fine. Though the owner of the community will have the choice to delete whichever posts they like.

In my opinion it is better to create your own community, build a following and have full control of what is shown.

The sooner you create one the better because once a name is taken, that’s it, no one else can have it. As it is so new you can get some great community names in any niche but this will not last for long.

Go to the next page to see how you can create your own Pinterest Community.

This is great information. I have been joining groups and posting there. The community idea is fabulous.. The format appears to be just like a group. I created my own group board but have not made it public yet. After this I will change it out for a Community.

Great post. Very helpful

Take Care

The two are very different things. The communities allow for much more two way communication.
