I really never thought about sending someone a message on Pinterest. I always figured that if I made a comment on their boards they would see anything I had to say. Yet, as I think about it there may be times that you want your message to be private.
I mean you don’t want the whole Pinterest world to see your suggestion to another Pinner that they should use a better picture or that you thought their description needed improvement. Nor do you want everyone to see your attempt to negotiate a better price for those earrings they are selling on Etsy or Ebay.
Well, I saw this post on a great blog called Networkingtips4u on Creating Messages on Pinterest.
Remember your blogging 101 and leave a comment on the site.
That article was somewhat helpful.
I, too, have wanted to send messages to users, like when they repin one of my pins. I’d like to do what I do on Twitter when someone retweets one of my tweets–send them a quick thank you message.
Perhaps if enough of us started asking for such a feature, we could get Pinterest to add it to their site.
I’m not sure that I would be in favor of it as I see it as a visual social media site. I go there to look, not necessarily read. Good discussion though. Thanks
