B. Finding Friends

 

Connecting your Facebook / Twitter accounts make it easier to find and follow people from your social networks.

  1. Hover over the profile menu and click Find Friends
  2. Connect to Facebook or Twitter to see who of your friends are on Pinterest
  3. Click Follow under your friend's name to follow all of their boards
  4. Add your Pinterest username to the Employee User Name List and follow some of your fellow coworkers boards.

 

PRO TIP: Be social! Don’t just repin. Leave comments and start a conversation.

 

 

 

C. Following User or Individual Boards

 

 

 

Following a person means you'll see that person's pins in your home feed. If he/she creates a new board, you'll automatically follow it. Following a board means you see new pins added to that board in your home feed.  

 

1. To follow all of a person's boards, click Follow All on their profile page.

2. To follow specific boards, click Follow at the bottom of the board.

Note: You can unfollow people or boards at any time – the person won't be notified.
