Marketing on Pinterest: The Other Side of the Story

After posting the article written by Beth Hayden about Pinterest, it has been brought to my attention that maybe this is NOT a good social network for professional crafters to join!!

In rebuttal of Beth’s article, here is the other side of the story (written and posted by the Bill of Rights for All Creative People website):

Pinterest – three reasons for not using it

There has been a vast amount of internet chatter about Pinterest of late in which both those in favour of and against this latest user driven content website have given their views. We have been asked recently for our own opinions. While our posts on social media should have made clear that we have a considerable number of concerns about this site we have decided to publish three specific reasons for not using it, and for blocking its access to your own website.


Should be interesting to follow this issue and see how Pinterest responds!

    Pinterest is the most happening thing currently in the social network market and is also attracting lot of new people. To be honest I learned something new in this post even if its my first time to know.

    I Love Pinerest but haven’t used it as much since reading about this controversy. Their automatic claim to photos posted as their property and their “right” to take legal action on people who post other peoples’ pics “without permission”, most of us, doesn’t seem right and I hope they wouldn’t take the time to charge (harass) the people they lured in with their cool looking and fun program.

    I love my boards though,
