    Default Can someone please tell me how P.interest works?

    I opened an account...as I thought it would be a great way to collect different ideas on things I was interested in, but when I go into my account and click on what I pinned, it only takes me to someone else's page and not the main source of the information so that I can find out more, eg. like ingredients and a method!

    Does P.interest go beyond collecting pictures? I thought it was a collection of ideas from different websites to help organise what you're interested in and find on the web. (And yes, they find out about you too)

    The pictures generally lead you to the websites, so you can pin just about anything and then when you click on that pin you're taken to the website. Does that make sense? I totally love Pinterest, it's my online pin boards with links and pics of stuff I like and ideas I'm saving for later.

    One example is that I use it to show my hairdresser the type of cut I want.

    When you say it takes you to that person's page do you me you click on the small picture and it takes you to another Pinterest page with just a bigger version of that picture and maybe the caption that person gave it? If that's what you mean, then touch the picture again and it should take you to the main page it came from (blog, magazine article, etc). But it will only take you to the site that something was pinned from, so sometimes you've pinned a photo wanting a recipe but it was originally pinned from a blog that speaks about it randomly and isn't the original source of info. Does that make sense?

    So see here I'm about to click on the spinach soup photo. It takes me to a larger version of the pin and then I click on the photo or 'visit' and it takes me to the original source it was pinned from.

    Eta: then I can pin it to a board on my account

    Very true! I felt a sense of victory the other night when I reached the bottom.

    I have never made it to the bottom and commented to hubby once that it goes On forever and he pointed out that it literally does. When you're getting close to the bottom, it loads more, and so on.

    ETA that's when browsing - I have reached the bottom when I'm looking for something completely obscure like "mandarin dessert" - there aren't many lol!

    That's what I thought, I'm fairly certain mine just keeps loading.
