Ten Tools for Your Pinterest Toolbelt

Ten Tools for Your Pinterest Toolbelt | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Pinterest is a great social networking site, but it is definitely still young and lacking in some features.

 

...If you’d like the Pinterest experience but with more features, you can either use an entirely different Pinterest alternative, or you can try using one of these Pinterest-based tools.


This collection has a huge variety of tools, including ways to explore, discover, analyze and more. There are even a few browser plug-ins to really make your Pinterest experience worthwhile. These tools definitely give Pinterest a whole new layer of functionality and you’re sure to find at least one you don’t know how you ever pinned without. Read on to learn about 10 of my favorite Pinterest tools....
