How to Repin an Image on Pinterest

by Wendy on July 16, 2012

It’s a fact that people love to view images more than text, whether browsing in magazines or on the internet.

We’re visual creatures by habit and it’s much easier to quickly look at an image rather than have to read a block of text.

It is for this very reason that a growing number of people are enjoying pinning and repinning images on Pinterest, the latest social media site to be attracting a lot of interest.

You, too, can do the same but first, you need to create an account on this rapidly growing networking site. I shared just how to do that in my previous post about What is Pinterest here.

Simply request an invitation and within a few days, you will get an email notification informing you that you can now sign up on the site.

After you have registered, you can start sharing images.
How To Share An Image On Pinterest

Upon logging into the site, you will immediately see a lot of images. Most will have short descriptions and some will have prices and longer descriptions.

When you see a photo that you love, you can freely share it. This is called repinning an image.

For most photos appearing on your Pinterest home page, you will see the number of times an image has been repinned. This information will not show, however, when you view photos from within a specific category, for example.

How To Repin An Image On Pinterest

To repin an image, just hover your mouse over the photo and you will see three options at the top.

On the left is Repin with the pin icons.

Simply click on it if you want to share it with your followers.

A new box will then show with several options.

First, choose the board where you’d like the image to stay.

Select your board using the down arrow on the right.

Next, provide your own description of the photo or simply edit what is there.

Here it’s a great idea to also add hashtag (the # symbol) for any topic, eg: #socialmedia or #weddingflowers. This will make your image easier to find when people search for that topic.

Then hit the Pin It button once you’re done.

The repinned image will show in one of your boards. It will also be seen in your activity log.

How To See Your Own Activity On Pinterest

You can see your own activity on Pinterest by visiting your profile.

Just click your name at the top right and on your profile, then click on Activity towards the centre under your Pinterst bio.

As a Pinterest user, you can repin as many images as you like. After all, this is what the site is all about.

How to Remove a Tag on a Photo on Facebook

by Wendy on July 16, 2012

Sharing photos remains as one of the most popular features for users on Facebook.

In fact, Facebook places more emphasis on photos that are shared, ranking these higher in the newsfeed than posts by users without images.

Apart from uploading them on your wall and albums, another way to share a great photo with friends is by tagging them.

When you a tag a person in a photo, it immediately shows up on his or her wall.

Some people may be happy with this, but there are others, for various reasons, who do not wish to be tagged.

This should not present a problem, however, as Facebook provides its users with the option to untag themselves from a picture.

Previously in the old profile, the option to remove the tag was easy to find as it sat right beside the name of the person, below the photo.

With the introduction of Timeline, however, the process of untagging yourself from a photo has changed.

How to Remove a Tag on a Facebook Photo

On the Timeline now, the steps are fairly simple if you want to remove a tag from a photo.

First, click on the photo where you have been tagged.

When the large photo shows up, hover your mouse below the picture to display the four options available – tag photo, options, share and like.

To untag, click Options and a small box will appear with a list of actions that you can choose from.

Choose the Remove Tag option to untag yourself.

Your name will no longer be tagged against that photo.

So there you go.
