Pinterest is a fast growing social share website, which allows its users to create online “pinboards” to organize and share theme based collections of images and descriptions as you browse the internet.
Especially popular with creative types, the pin it button offers yet another interesting way of making it easier for your visitors to share your content and grow your traffic.
The “Pin It” button is ideal for very visual websites such as photography and portfolio style sites and also product catalogs – great for online stores!
As with the other buttons on the Slick Social Share plugin, which includes the tweet button, google plus one, google buzz, facebook like, linkedin, stumbleupon and digg, the Pin It button is available in 3 sizes and includes the option of showing a count of the total number of pinterest.com followers for each specific page.
The “Pin It” button is available starting with version 1.4 – check out the WordPress Slick Social Share Buttons plugin for more information.
