So, lately there’s been an upheave about Pinterest and their terms. You know I’m a huge pinterest fan...I’ve mentioned that so many times. I pin and pin and pin to my heart’s delight. I try things, gain inspiration, get helpful tips, put together and post clothing suggestions, I’ve never thought anything about it. I never take credit for anything I don’t create, but I always want to share any knowledge I’ve received that’s helpful.
But then I saw this deal come up on Facebook:
I didn’t know what this meant and didn’t really care (at the time). Who reads the terms and conditions when they sign up for anything? Anyone? Not me, that’s for sure.
Earlier last week, a friend posted THIS article and I started to get a little worried. I wondered what this meant for me. Will I get sued if someone doesn’t like that I pinned their site? Is it all really that worth it? And then I contemplated closing my account. Do I need to be that extreme about this?
But as I thought about it, I decided not to close my account. That’s the way other side of the spectrum. I am, however, going to be more careful about what I’m pinning. I’m not going to just pin any old thing like I did before. I probably should have done this anyway, but I never thought it was an issue.
Then an even awesomer thing happened. Pinterest changed some of their terms! Yippee! I got an email several days ago stating which terms they changed, and you can read them HERE. Even with this new change, I am still going to be more aware and careful of what I’m pinning.
I am still grateful to the creators of Pinterest, for giving some of us a chance to be creative, to share helpful and creative things, and for giving me more ideas for foods for my family. You may not be perfect, Pinterest, but you still rock.
