    Interested to hear if anyone has been experimenting with Pinterest? Seems to really be gaining momentum, especially with 25-35 y.o women from what I've seen.

    Some stats from Experian eariler in the month:

    I haven't tried it yet. I just requested an invite. I read a lot of good reviews about Pinterest and I'm really excited to try it.

    Yeah been using it for around 9 months for clients in the Fashion niche, see good traffic from their.

    But to be honest I think it is a lot of hype over it recently, you really need to be creative too see some good use from it from a niche like insurance.

    Also you need to be aware of the fact any image you upload to the site is the property of Pinterest i.e they can on sell it according to their Terms or service.

    I'm waiting too.. would be nice to get a decent username :)

    It's mostly about the visuals so finance would be tricky. Looking at some successful examples for big brands, looks like you need to go fairly broad to gain momentum.

    my background is photography ( as in i actually have a uni degree in it so pay attention)

    james is RIGHT, my wife takes great photos of the kids and got an email that said you could WIN a nikon to upload a photo to the competition ( i don't need to mention which one as they are almost all the same)

    the terms were that that image then becme the property of the organisation

    now i have to say my kids are beautiful ( must take after their mum ! ) but what the terms ment is i could one day be driving down the road ....having NOT won the nikon camera.... and see my kids on a billboard !!!

    pretty CHEAP stock images hey !!!

    tim

    ps: i am pretty sure the same goes for youtube and to state the obvious i think youtube are currently creating a TV channel if they haven't already suceeded and everythign you put on youtube they don't have to pay you for !

    Think they may have changed this recently...

    Lawyers say be careful:

    "Online brands that encourage the use of Pinterest can apply a 'pin it' button to websites to allow users to pin products. Applying a 'pin it' button to a photograph would (arguably) provide users with implied consent to publish the photograph to Pinterest. This would considerably reduce the risk of copyright infringement for users who pin the photographs, but companies will need to be sure they have ownership (or suitable licence rights) in any photographs to which they apply the 'pin it' button."

    they were trying to implement areas to assist this such as: http://marketingland.com/pinterest-...fighting-copyright-with-opt-out-meta-tag-6461

    But yes it can be some what risky from a legal view point, hence why you need to be careful with the images you push live in my eyes.
