  • Transcript of "How to Participate in the Project 2996 Group Board on Pinterest"

    1. 1. How to Participate in the Project 2996Group Board on PinterestDarryl Heron
    2. 2. What is Project 2996? On the left is the “about Statement“ from the Project 2996 web site
    3. 3. Project 2996 Has Started a Group Board on Pinterest!!In honor of the 11th Anniversary of September 11th, Project 2996 has started agroup board on PinterestThe presentation is designed to provide some further information to those thatwould like to participate as well as to those that would only like to know moreabout it.This is not intended to be an all encompassing user guide for Pinterest but wehope that it will provide enough information to get started.
    4. 4. Why a Group Board on Pinterest?Pinterest has seen a lot of growth in the last year or so with reports thatPinterest Drives more referral traffic than LinkedIn, YouTube, and Google+Pinterest is very visual in nature. Pinterest users create virtual boards onlinewhere they pin items related to various themes. Pins always include a picture,drawing, or something visual.Putting a face to all of the victims will help to humanize all of them, becausethey were after all, people.We believe that this will be a fun and exciting project and are looking forwardto watch it grow and take wings of it‘s own!
    5. 5. Introducing… The Project 2996 Group Board on Pinterest!! As you can quickly see, every pin puts a face to a victim. As time goes by more and more of the 2996 victims will have pins on this board.
    6. 6. What is a Group Board?A group board basically means that the creator of the board can invite others to pinalong. We‘d like pinning to the Project 2996 board to be a group experience andwelcome those that would like to pin along with us.At the time that this presentation was put together there are currenty only twomembers in our group but we would certainly welcome anyone that has already posteda tribue or anyone else that would like to join us.Group boards are fun because you aren‘t just limited to the resources of a singleperson.With more and more people pinning, the group board gets more exposure, with moreand more chances for pins to be noticed and for people to decide that they want tofollow the board.
    7. 7. How Do I Get StartedMake sure that you let Project 2996 know that you want to participate. (more on thislater).You‘ll need to have a Pinterest account. In August 2012, Pinterest was taken out ofbeta and openned up to the general public. So you only have to go to the PinterestWebsite to enroll (if you don‘t already have an account).Be sure to ‘Follow‘ the board, so you‘ll know when new items have been added.At the time that this presentation was put together, there are currenty a little more than100 pins and we want to have a pin for each and every victim so that means that wehave a long we to go.You‘ll be provided further instructions on how we can ensure that we have all of thevictims represented by at least one pin.
    8. 8. Basic Ground RulesThe following ground rules aren‘t meant to insult anyone but to stop any ill will orhatred that could easily develop if we don‘t follow some basic ground rules:Project 2996 is non partisan, while most of the participants will have their ownpolitical view, we will not ‚share‘ this in pins within the board.Please refrain from name calling or obscene language, we do want to keep theboard family friendly.Pins should only be related to the victims, Project 2996, or September 11th. Inorder to not insult anyone‘s political beliefs, pins should not contain any pictures ofany American Presidents, or Presidential Candidates.
    9. 9. Here‘s PinterestThis is what Pinterest looks like to non users. It should be noted that whatis displayed changes every second.
    10. 10. Pinterest Home PageThe screen shot shows recent ‚pins‘ by people that I ‚follow‘ onPinterest when I recently went there
    11. 11. What is a pin?Much like you might ‚Pin‘ things to a ‚Board‘ (at home or elsewhere), you pin things toboards on Pinterest.Pinterest says that a „pin is an image added to Pinterest. A pin can be added from awebsite using the Pin It button, or you can upload images from your computer. EachPin added using the Pin It button links back to the site it came from.“A pin is much like a atom, it can be combined with other pins to form a board. It canalso be repinned into a different board by someone other than the original pinner. Itcan be liked, and people can comment on them
    12. 12. What Does a Pin Look Like? On the left you can see that this is part of the “Project 2996“ board (notice the crest?) Here is a picture of Michael L. Selves along with a description of his occupation There is one comment below the pin with room for other comments
    13. 13. What is a board?Pinterest says that a board is a set of pins. A board can be created on anytopic, such as Cool Posters, Recipes For Dinner, or Wishlist. You can add asmany pins to a board as you want.Boards are basically how you organize your pins. So you can have a singleboard, a few boards, or how many boards you wish to have. People will createboards related to various themes, subjects, ideas.
    14. 14. A Pinterest Board Here is the Project 2996 Group Board again As you can see, there are several pins shown on the left. The person that pinned the item is shown below the pin. Under each pin, people can add comments
    15. 15. Pinning: The Basics Click on the “Add“ button towards the upper right- hand corner (circled in red in the picture). Your screen will now look like the one on the next slide.
    16. 16. Two Basic Ways to PinYou‘ll now see something similar to the screen shot above.•You can ‘Add a Pin‘ (which means that there is a picture on the web that you‘ll belinking to) or•You can ‘Upload a Pin‘ (which means that you‘ll be uploading your own picture,drawing, or other graphical content•(You can also create a new board here, but this isn‘t applicable for pinning to theProject 2996 group board)
    17. 17. ‚Add a Pin‘If you select to ‘Add a Pin‘, you‘ll see a box similar to the one above.•Notice the „http://“- this means that your pin is on the internet somewhere•Type in the address of what you wish to pin (you can also copy paste theaddress)•Click on the find images.
    18. 18. Adding A Pin cont.If there is a picture of a large enough size at the address you provided, it willlook something like the picture above.•The address that you typed in is shown•The last category that you pinned is also shown (‘Television‘ was the lastcategory I had pinned, that is why it shows up here)•Click on the drop-down menu to change the category from ‘Television‘
    19. 19. Adding A Pin cont.Scroll down the menu until you see ‘Project 2996‘ and select it. Now you have thecategory that you want and should add the description. This will be shown on the nextslide.
    20. 20. Adding a Pin cont.After you‘ve completed your description for the pin, click on the‘Pin It‘ button. We‘llget into what kind of information we‘d like to see in the description later on in thispresentation.
    21. 21. How To Upload A PinIf you had selected to ‚Upload a Pin‘ (second option if the top picture), you would seesomething like the screen captured above. With this option you‘ll be adding your ownpicture, drawing, or graphical item, instead of linking to something that is alreadyonline. Click on the „Browse…“ button and a new window will open up where you cannavigate to the item you‘d like to upload. This will be a Windows Explorer window forthose of you using Windows.
    22. 22. How To Upload A Pin contThis looks similar to the ‚Add a Pin‘ except that the address is now somethingon your computer instead of the internet. After you‘ve added yourdescription, click on the „Pin It“ button.
    23. 23. Pin DescriptionPlease include the following information in your Pin description.Name of the victim, age, occupation, and the location where they were (flight#,Pentagon, or World Trade Center). Please include „#“ in front of the location, this helpswith search (similar to its use in Twitter)If you have linked to a online webpage this will be shown in the pin and can be clickedon by those that want to. If you have used a link directly to a picture, then you shouldalso a link to the appropriate story that the picture comes from. Look for moreinformation about copyright later in this presentation.The last line of the description should include the following: #911 #september11th #project2996. These will make our pins easier to find, whenpeople are looking for any of those terms.Pinterest has set the number of characters in a pin description to less than 500. Thismeans that you might want to add comments after the pin is online as necessary.
    24. 24. How Do I Edit My Pin? Sometime you‘ll notice that you clicked the Pin It button to quickly and that you want to make changes. Click on the „Edit“ button to change the board you pinned it to, the description, or even to delete it.
    25. 25. A Word About CopyrightYou should always include links to anything that you might post. If the owner ofthat item doesn‘t want their matterial pinned (some people do not) you shouldcomply and remove it . This can mean that you need to find another picture or soon. Many websites want to have their material pinned because it is a good way tobring traffic to their sites and can help their material reach new audiences. A lot ofmagazines and newspapers are using Pinterest as well now. If you don‘t have a picture that we use, you might be able to use a stock photofrom the various stock photo sites or maybe you can create a drawing or somesort of visual item that can be uploaded (You can be very creative with this).
    26. 26. How Do I Find Pictures to PinIf you have already written a tribute, you might have a picture in your tribute that youcan pin or you might be able to pin your tribute.Pinterest requires that pictures have to be a certain size in order to show up, that iswhy a story or post with small pictures or several pictures might not pull up and youmight want to link to a specific picture. You can right-click the picture and will be ableto find the address for that picture. Occassionally this is disabled when the websitedoesn‘t want visitors using this funtion.Google has a pretty good image search, but they don‘t have a monopoly on photosearches, so feel free to try others. I‘ve done a screen capture on the next slide.
    27. 27. Picture Searches When I did this screen capture, the first picture is actually what was pinned to the Project 2996 for Michael Selves. When you click on a picture, it will take you to that picture and show you where the picture is from (i.e blog post, article, website, etc.)
    28. 28. Repin, Like, & CommentWhen you hover over something that has been pinned by another user,you‘ll notice ‚“Repin“, „Like“, and „Comment“ buttons (the pin on the left inthe screenshot above shows these options). I‘ll discuss these in the nextfew slides
    29. 29. What is a ‚Repin‘? If you happen to see a pin that you like and would like to add it to a board of your own, you can click on the ‚Repin‘ button and you can add it to whatever board or yours you like. When and image is repinned, the user that originally pinned the image will aldo be credited and repins keep the source link from the orginal pin Repin is kind of like Retweet in Twitter
    30. 30. Can I ‚Like‘ A Pin?You might have ‚Liked‘ something in Facebook, you can also ‚Like‘ pins withinPinterest. If you ‚Like‘ a pin in Pinterest, it will show up under your profile‘s Likessection.Liking a pin will not add it to any of your boards, to this you will need to Repin it.By the way, if you have your Pinterest account linked to your Facebook accountyou can do a Facebook like of pins, so you can ‚Like‘ in Pinterest and Facebookas well.
    31. 31. Adding a Comment You should notice in the picture on the left that there is a comment under the pin. You can comment after any pin you see (regardless of if you‘re a member of a board or not). Feel free to add any information you might feel is relvent or any comment that you might wish to make (remember to follow the General rules)
    32. 32. What is Following?You can ‚follow‘ all of a user‘s boards or you can ‚follow‘ individual boards that interestyou.According to Pinterest ‘„Following All“ means you‘ll have all of a user‘s pins on all theirboards shown to you in real-time on Pintest. If the user makes new boards, you willautomatically follow them.‘When you follow individual boards, you see items that are pinned to them in real-timeas well.
    33. 33. Pinterest- Basic LayoutThis is what my profile looks like. You can see 10 of my board here.You‘ll also see that there is a description of the user. Users can showtheir website and link to Twitter and Facebook accounts. You can alsosee how many items the user has pinned, liked, how many people theyare following and how many they‘re following.
    34. 34. How Does The Group Board Affect Project 2996?Our main objective is to encourage online tributes for all the September 11th victims.Through our group board on Pinterest, we‘ll be able to put a face to all of the victims aswell.Pins will tell a little bit about the victim and in the comments that follow we‘ll be able toindicate if there is a Project 2996 tribute for them or not.People can comment on the victims (especially have they have their own story to tell).This group board should also bring some futher publicity to Project 2996.
    35. 35. What is Following?You can ‚follow‘ all of a users boards or you can ‚follow‘ individual boards that interestyou.According to Pinterest ‘„Following All“ means you‘ll have all of a user‘s pins on all theirboards shown to you in real-time on Pintest. If the user makes new boards, you willautomatically follow them.‘When you follow individual boards, you see items that are pinned to them in real-timeas well.
    36. 36. Pinterest and SearchingUsually when you‘re on the Pinterst site, there is a search box in theupper left hand corner. Here you can see that I typed in ‚#911‘When searching in Pinterest, it will search by Pins, Boards, or People.You can use this feature to:•Find possible pins for a board that you‘re working on.•Find boards about subjects that you‘re interest in.•Find other users that you might like to follow.And don‘t forget that we still need roughly 1300 more tributes to reachour goal of a ‚real‘ online tribute for every victim by a ‚real‘ person
    37. 37. Visit Project 2996‘s Web SiteBe sure to visit our web page athttp://project2996.wordpress.com/
    38. 38. How to ParticipateYou can leave a comment on the board in Pinterest informing us thatyou‘d like to participate.You can leave a wall post on Facebook.You can leave a comment on the Contact Me Page of our Web Page.Look for more information on the coming days about pinning and so onAnd don‘t forget that we still need roughly 1300 more tributes to reachour goal of a ‚real‘ online tribute for every victim by a ‚real‘ person
    39. 39. We Remember (a.k.a. The List) „We Remember (a.ka. The List“ At the time of this screen capture there were 1274 victims without Project 2996 tributes. The list is broken down by flight#, Pentagon, and World Trade Center victims. We need all of the victims ‘pinned‘, regardless of if there is a tribute or not. It would also be great if you were to write a tribute for someone that doesn‘t have one.
    40. 40. How to ParticipateYou can leave a comment on the board in Pinterest informing us thatyou‘d like to participate.You can leave a wall post on Facebook.You can leave a comment on the Contact Me Page of our Web Page.Look for more information on the coming days about pinning and so onAnd don‘t forget that we still need roughly 1300 more tributes to reachour goal of a ‚real‘ online tribute for every victim by a ‚real‘ person
    41. 41. What Else Can We Do?We want every victim to be represented by at least one pin in our Pinboard.Within each pin and/or within the comments people should be able to find theirway to the Project 2996 tribute(s)Liking pins and repinning them brings attention to those pins and helps otherusers to find them.Put comments on Pins where you have something to add.You can share via Facebook and Twitter.You can embed any pin on your website or blog (maybe you might want to dothis with the next tribute your write?)If you know of anyone else that would like to participate, be sure to let us knowand direct them to the group board, our website, and/or our Facebook page
