Recently in two classes I taught, the question of how to create pins on Pinterest besides re-pinning others' content was brought up. One of my students was concerned with making sure to stay on the right side of copyright law while the other wanted to be able to add content to the Pinterest community. I thought we would take a look today at the various ways you can create pins on Pinterest.
If there is one singular truth about social media, it is that it is always changing and adapting. In the last month, we have seen two major shifts on two of the major platforms - Instagram and Twitter - concerning how their feeds are managed. This has implications for users as well as businesses that heavily rely on these platforms to get their brand messages to consumers. So let's take a look at what this means in the grand world of social media!
The platform that I have been playing with the most over the last year is Instagram. I have thousands - literally - of photos on my phone and one might say I'm obsessed with my fur babies (I did use two of them in this post).
Jana Oliver and I as the Social Media Muses are teaching a class for the Passionate Ink chapter of RWA about Social Media for authors who write more steamy romances. For many writers regardless of the heat level of their intimate scenes, keeping their identity hid from the day job, relatives, or friends can be a challenge on Facebook. A similar situation arises when you are a marketer managing a page for a client, your name doesn't need to be associated with the page - you just need access to do your work. The requirement to have a Facebook account (personal profile) combined with their terms of service (TOS) regarding real name usage and only having one profile account, can make staying under wraps while not breaking TOS considerably more difficult. Fear not - the muses have a few tips for keeping your identity hidden!
