I thought it was time to tell you how much I like Pinterest and why I think it's good for your small nonprofit, but I was late off the mark and more than a few folks beat me to it.
Over at Nonprofit Tech 2.0 there's a great tutorial for how to get your not-for-profit set up on the site as well as a bit about how Pinterest is being used by savvy nonprofits.
Then skip over to Frogloop where Avi Kaplan gives away ideas on how best to use this new social media community. He also references Beth Kanter and Joe Waters and why they are using Pinterest.
Most Important Tips:
- Let your supporters pin to your boards.
- Put a Pinterest button on your website, so people can pin your images to their boards.
