Please add yours in the comments.

My wants and wishes for Pinterest include:

From Pinterest:

  • Communicate better including answering emails and answering questions on facebook and twitter.
  • Write more useful blog posts.
  • Create an Android app.
  • Make it easier to know if you’ve already pinned an image.
  • Give us better ways to connect with each other, such as groups or forums.
  • Let us sort and rearrange pins on a board
  • Stop showing empty boards on a search; let us sort the results.
  • Make it easier to see, sort and filter our followers and following.
  • Make it easier to find people and companies on Pinterest.
  • Give us a way to share or recommend pinners and boards.
  • Let us have a private hidden board.
  • Let us hide boards temporarily – I want to put the Christmas boards in the attic.

From Pinners: 

  • Only pin from original sources.
  • Pin from the exact blog post or image not the general website.
  • Enter better descriptions to make things easier to find.
  • Use categories
  • If your board title isn’t obvious add a description.
(and no, I’m not perfect, but I’m trying to get better about all of these things)

 From Everyone Else:

  • Join.
  • Don’t dismiss the site as being for women only, men use it too.
  • Businesses can use Pinterest too.
  • Add images that can be pinned to your blogs and websites.

What did I forget? Let me know in the comments. Also let me know about any businesses or blogs using Pinterest that you recommend following, I may feature them in a future post.

P.S. It’s hard to write blog posts about Pinterest without getting distracted while researching.
