Pinterest Pin Next To Photos?

Discussion in 'Using the Forum' started by WTFish?, Apr 9, 2019.

    I just noticed today that photos have a “save” to Pinterest pin by them when scrolling. Is this new or am I a late bloomer?

    I haven't seen it before, must be new. Or maybe...you know how a link to youtube will let you play the video on fishlore, but in a smaller box? Maybe they gave a link to pinterest and it did something similar

    Maybe so, I was also wondering if it was just an update on my iPad, nothing to do with FL. Hmmm

    Hmm, doing it on my laptop too, and I'm pretty sure that example picture isn't on pinterest. Looked a few other threads really quick and I now notice that it's on most of the pictures too

    Yeah it’s on all photos, I just used my own to show it. I don’t think they’re on Pinterest, rather asking if you’d like to save it there. Anywho, cool. Hadn’t noticed before.

    i just saw it too!!! it's annoying lol because i don't even use pinterest (i have the app installed though)

    I was on that bandwagon when it first came out, not much now...except for recipes, it’s great for saving those!

    i noticed that today, too. saw it on somebody's avatar after i opened up their profile. i was using the mobile browser though.

    Oh, never noticed that before... I don’t like it... I know when you post any image online people can take it and use it for themselves. But I dislike having a Pinterest link on individual user photos, seems like encouragement for others to take your photos and such... Maybe I’m missunderstanding it, but I don’t really like this.
  11. WTFish?Well Known MemberMember

    Totally agree, now you don’t have to go through the trouble to save and such to your own computer, just click and BAM all photos are public online. Oh well, I guess.
  12. PlatyloverFishlore VIPMember

    Yeah... that’s going to discourage me a fair bit from posting photos here now. I get it’s easy enough to just save and posts or other ways, but I really dislike this. We shouldn’t be encouraging people to take others photographs without permission.

    Pinterest saves the link of where the photo is found, so it shouldn't be much of an issue. I personally love pinterest, so Im excited to see if this is newly implemented.

    So now other people can save my photos or other peoples to pinterest ?. How do we benefit from this ?
    I once found a picture of one of my dog on pinterest I know I never posted there ...
  15. WTFish?Well Known MemberMember

    Yep, that’s what it’s for. That would be creepy, did you contact that person? Not that it’s illegal but still.
  16. PlatyloverFishlore VIPMember

    That is creepy weird... I’d be a bit freaked out. I imagine you can contact Pinterest if the person who posted it refuses to remove it. But still...

    I don’t know if I can truly express how much I don’t like this lol

    I love this forum and will continue to use it, but maybe minus the photographs. aside from PM’s.

    If someone downloaded the Pinterest button at any point you can save almost any picture from any website. Guessing that has to be it. I don't have the button on my phone and I don't see that option on other people's pictures.

    Its just mike experimenting again;)

    Added that earlier today. It creates a link back to the thread to try and get more eyeballs on your thread. Kinda similar to sharing a thread or page on FB or twitter.

    I'm stealing @coralbandit and @Thunder_o_b pics. Lol. Not really but it sounded good. I don't have anything to worry about. Nobody is going to steal my junky pics.
