I LOVE Pinterest. I just loved the concept that I could find something very interesting on the internet and categorise it on my boards. I have been hoarding so many creative DIY tutorials on Pinterest, to me, Pinterest is like my visual bookmark, a personal library cum scrapbook of sorts.
However, nothing is perfect, whilst Pinterest is a wonderful space, it is subject to a bit of abuse. And the fine print also says that we are responsible for the content we put up, which means if we are careless, we could get the pants or skirts sued off us.
So this is for a better, more civilised www, and to protect ourselves!
Personally, I have had one particular image pinned and repinned at least a thousand times without linking back to me as the source. I'm glad that people found the words on that image encouraging, and I hope more and more women are blessed by those words, but I really wish it was linked back to me! If you ever see this image floating around the internet, could you do me a kind gesture and let the pinner know where it came from? I thank you in advance. It will suffice to link back to this post itself.
When pinning, please always link back to the source!
When repinning, please always check that it is linked back to the source!
