I am an active Pinterest user and enjoy it alot. I have created a board called My Favorite Websites (Which mostly have my developed sites) and a Domaining Board that generates some traffic especially when someone else “repinns” it. I am not talking about huge amounts of traffic but it’s a nice little extra thing to promote your business. If you create a Pin that hundreds of users repin and the link goes to one of your businesses that can up your traffic a lot. Well Pinterest announced today that they are allowing users to create “Sercet Boards” that you decide who can see it.
I will be creating one for TNTNames and see how it turns out. I have added below a little more info about “Secret Boards” If you would like to follow me on Pinterest here is the link. I will follow you back!:)
The following has been taken from Pinterest’s Blog:
The holidays are a time for being with family, sharing great meals, and, of course, surprising your favorite people with a special gift. That’s why we thought the holidays were a perfect time to test one of our most frequently-requested features: secret boards! Starting today, we’ll be gradually rolling out a test that enables anyone to create three secret boards.
We hope that secret boards will make Pinterest even more useful. You can use secret boards to keep track of holiday gifts, plan a special event, or work on a project you aren’t yet ready to share with the rest of the world. You can keep your secret boards to yourself or invite family and friends to pin with you.
To create a secret board from the web, visit your profile and scroll down to the bottom. Then, click Create a Secret Board. You can also click Add+ on the top right-hand corner of Pinterest to select Create Board and turn the Secret button to On.
If you’re on your mobile device, first download the most recent version of Pinterest for iPhone, iPad, Android phone or Android tablet.
Then, go to your profile, tap on the Boards tab, and scroll down to the bottom until you see a button that says Create a Secret Board.
When you add a pin to a secret board, it won’t show up anywhere else on Pinterest—the only place you can see it is on your secret board. Right now, you can’t make existing boards secret because others people may have already repinned from your board.
