The Graphics Fairy - How to Find the Original Source of an Image on Pinterest

The Graphics Fairy -  How to Find the Original Source of an Image on Pinterest | Educational technology | Scoop.it

This is a neat little trick that my son taught me. I'm sure some of you probably already know about this, but in case you didn't I think you will find it to be super handy, particularly if you are a Pinterest user! More than a few times, I've clicked on a Pinterest Pin, in order to find the instructions to an awesome Craft Tutorial, only to find that the Pin went somewhere other than the original source. If that happens to you, this is how you can find it.

I was introduced to Pinterest by one of my students about six months before the boom that made Pinterest a household word.


I wish I'd seized the opportunity and jumped right in. However, at first I just didn't get it.  Now in hindsight I realize that Pinterest is a curation platform-- one that appeals to millions.  Needless to say I'm now curating a dozen different interests!

I'd like to see actual data. The Infographic is one year old :)

Do you have a Food-related business?  Was interested to see that 57% of Pinners interact with food-related pins.  It's their top category.

Fashion Curation: Create Your Own Custom StyleBook with StyleSaint

Robin Good: StyleBook is a fashion and glamour curation platform allowing you to easily create rich illustrated stylebooks.

 

StyleBook looks on the surface like most other visual boards, allowing you to easily follow other users, and to select and repin images to your stylebooks.

 

From Techcrunch: "To use StyleSaint in its current form, log in with Facebook or Twitter and create an account, once logged on, you can choose from over 55K “tear sheet” images from which to create your own Stylebook, once you’ve got more than ten tear sheets loaded, you can hit the “Create Stylebooks” link in the top right and StyleSaint will automatically import, then publish, the last ten sheets you’ve torn. Alternatively you can drag-and-drop the tears to create a custom stylebook. Click on “Create” to publish to the site.

 

In addition the resulting books are Facebookable, tweetable and embeddable, the embeddable stylebooks function as an overlay on embedded sites, preventing traffic re-direction. 

 

The most compelling thing about StyleSaint is that co-founders Brian Garrett and Allison Beal eventually want to use the collective data from the style booking activity to come up with its own line of clothing. “StyleSaint is the only company editorializing the phenomenon of image discovery and curation and combining it with a manufacturing, vertical eTailer ecommerce model...”
