Franklin Center is putting together a new website and I wrote a post for them about Pinterest. Here’s a snippet:
BONUS: Tips for Integrating Pinterest into your journalism:
1. Always have a picture in your post/article. Pictures are the way people search topics on Pinterest. There needs to be an “anchor”.
2. Make the picture in your post relevant and logical. Pinterest, like the internet, is literal. Clever and ironic pictures won’t make sense on Pinterest where no text is visible.
3. Put a Pinterest plugin on your Website. Make sure people can see what you follow.
4. Create a board on Pinterest of your work. People will follow and share your articles this way.
