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!
