We’ve had a few people ask about how we feel about Pinterest recently. I thought I’d make this week’s topic about where we stand on all that stuff.
Social media is the cornerstone of MySoti. It’s what designers use to bring customers to their designs and in turn, to us. We all need it. We aim to keep an eye on any such trends so that we can give our designers the tools to bring their designs to the widest possible audience.
Pinterest can be seen as just such a tool. On the flip side, it’s also potentially a way of relinquishing control over where the images are used. The copyright and integrity of designers’ images is of exceptionally high importance to us. Without that respect from our side, MySoti wouldn’t exist. Period.
So, where do we stand on Pinterest ? At the moment, we do not currently allow pages to be pinned for the above reasons. However, that isn’t completely final. We are looking at ways of giving designers the choice to opt in if it’s important to them, but for now it seems that this is the fairest way round. It’s just another way in which we aim to look after you all!
Until next week :)
