Pinterest has recently made sharing Idea Pins across other social media networks a breeze. You are now free to share your story-like pins with Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat users. On the one hand, this could be a convenient element in your enhanced Pinterest-based experience. On the other hand, the update does come with some additional food-for-thought concerns. Read on for more details on the issue.
Idea Pins are sixty-second-long vids that can be customized with stickers, audio, and voice effects. While editing these pins, you can also integrate background data and have a blast tagging other authors in their Idea Pins. Unlike the usual social-media-story pattern, these story-resembling pins are still there even after 24 hours of posting. Pinterest calls this update evolutionary, because it features the company’s video-first functionality, customization options, and potential overhauls.
If you want to share Idea Pins on other social networking platforms, just choose the download-share icon, find yourself within the required social media app, have fun editing the watermarked pin, and upload away. Easy and convenient.
The slippery slope about this is that Instagram, for instance, forbids uploading Reels that feature TikTok watermarks. That way, the image sharing giant aims at preventing users from simply copying-and-pasting TikTok content. This factor is definitely worth taking into account. However, if you’re on the prowl for better story creation options for your brand or just want to give your Pinterest presence a boost, experimenting with Idea Pins is something you may want to opt for. So, have you already given the new goodie a go? You’re welcome to let us in on your thoughts on the topic in the comment section below.
