    Pinterest Tools

    I am guessing that part of being successful as a social media platform is when developers build tools for the platform and that is already happening for Pinterest. Mashable showcased 10 tools for Pinterest that help pinners with everything from analytics to pinfluence to images. http://mashable.com/2012/04/02/pinterest-tools/

    I'm sure some of these services will be extremely useful as Pinterest grows. On a side note, I love all of the word play coming from Pinterest, such as "pinfluence" and "pinfringement" (copyright infringement on Pinterest.) This site has really grown on me in the past couple of weeks!

    I also get a kick out of all the 'pin' play on words. I signed up for Pinerly and I bookmarked most of the other tool sites, I like the idea of being able to pin a website, a screen shot of website (without having to screen shot it myself), and the quoting tool. My Pinerly referral link is: http://www.pinerly.com/i/o9259/next and they also have some really great images for pinning on their site.

    Yesterday there were 10 tools for Pinterest, today I found an article with 19 new tools for Pinterest, of course most of the original 10 I found are in this 19, but now there are even more tools for pinning and playing! http://socialmediatoday.com/node/483747

    Pinterest Tools

    This is so cool! I know there are tons of things you can use to connect with Twitter, but I hadn't thought about any of that for Pinterest. It's definitely a sign that Pinterest is a healthy social media site developing really well.

    Let me know how Pinerly works out for you - or any other tools you are using. Thanks!

    Pinerly is just in beta and hasn't really been released yet, but I signed up for it so that I can use it when they launch and I will keep you updated! Did you hear that Pinterest just became the 3rd most popular social media site? YUP! It passed LinkedIn and is not just behind Facebook and Twitter. I am so excited and hopeful for the future of this site.

    Not really a Pinterest "tool", but I thought this was an interesting and clever idea: "live pinning"! I read an article on Mashable yesterday that Oscar de la Renta is planning to 'live pin' their bridal show on Pinterest! http://mashable.com/2012/04/16/oscar...e-bridal-show/

    I'm so glad that you like my posts! I am really into Pinterest, albeit more from a marketing interest than most of my friends. I have two other articles that I really liked on the Pinterest topic:
