An archive of our #ToolsChat on Pinterest with an explanation of how the chat works


#ToolsChat update of Pinterest Tools from 5 September

I am blogging this to show you the flow of a Twitter chat from start to finish. I selected about 70 of around 1200 tweets. If I missed your tweets do not be offended I did it quickly and randomly!

Much to learn about Pinterest here too. Enjoy!

I am adding some comments during the tweets to show why I asked the questions I did and when. I use to display questions, tips , news and instructions and to tweet from tweetchat which is imbedded into our twebevent site. We have had around 35,000 views on our twebevent page already.

We started #ToolsChat about 15 months ago to build a community of people who like to tweet and who like to know the latest online tools. We have a Facebook group as well that you may enjoy too

    Today`s #toolschat is about @Pinterest (still growing fast) Q1 How often are you using it and why? #pinchat
    I made this question to get participants involved. A simple question which is not yes or no but can be answered in 100 characters

    A1. I use Pinterest personally, but also for a nonprofit – one more free way to drive traffic to a cause! #toolschat
  20. mqtodd
    Ahhh have missed #toolschat !! What was wrong with me in August? Heatstroke? Q2 Pinterest username & what are your boards about?
    Another question to get people involved and tweeting and to connect more deeply with each other. Best to do this early as it will help bring their friends to the chat and everyone will see who is here. Will do more difficult questions next which there will not be so many answers to.

  28. Tribe2point0
    A5 Reverse image search by Google or Pin Search Chrome extension ~ find the source for images and attribute #toolschat
  29. LovelyLu
    What amazes me is how mainstream #Pinterest is….. it is just as popular with the older generations as the young. #toolschat
  30. OSPInteresting
    “@Sheresed: @OSPInteresting Would the image link to the post to drive traffic to blog? #toolschat” It sure can!
  31. bekiweki
    @LovelyLu What amazes ME is the people that are still dismissing #Pinterest. Just shooting themselves in the foot, IMO. #toolschat
  32. Sheresed
    #toolschat A2: pinterest username is sheresed using to connect on a lifestyle level w/ biz audience.

  45. ModWorkingWoman
    “@arabpestcontrol: A6 #Pinterest #tip Use hashtags within the title and Tweet your Pins! #toolschat

    A6. You can mention a pinterest user just like on twitter by adding @username in your pins. #toolschat
  47. mqtodd
    A6 As everywhere on SM post & network on #Pinterestto get shared not simply to get seen once #tip #toolschat
  48. ModWorkingWoman
    “@bekiweki: A6 Don’t pin all at once–it’s tempting to “pin all the pretty,” but frequent visits and steady activity wins. #toolschat
  49. Tribe2point0
    A6 Be consistent, edit boards ~ check for bad links, follow others, comment/like, have FUN:) #toolschat
  50. bekiweki
    @Tribe2point0 The same can go for sharing–share only the best of the best pins on other SM platforms.#toolschat
  51. Twylah
    Pinterest definitely needs a @bufferapp function.#toolschat
  52. Blogathon2
    A6: When an image is pinned, it automatically pulls what’s in the atl tag of the image. Use this to your advantage on your site. #toolschat
  53. Tribe2point0
    A6 On @Pinterest you are a curator not an aggregator ~ be discerning #Pin the BEST stuff #toolschat
