More spam on Pinterest lately?

Pinterest boards are really becoming full of spam. A quick search on ‘iPhone’ pins end up with so many duplicate images all created by a couple of spammers.

And there are a handful of pins with suspicious URLs leading to sales page, and nothing relevant to the images we see.

As an iPhone fan, I’m always looking for the best iPhone stuff on the Internet and Pinterest. Unfortunately the search results are so disappointing and takes me more time than what I’m willing to spend. Maybe it will be better if the pinboard king can come up with a algorithm to remove similar images. That will make the user experience do much better.

Btw I keep an iPhone board ‘iPhone paradize” and if you like what you see, do follow or please repin.

Klout is now available on iPhone

Klout is finally on iPhone. Perfect for crazy people like me who checks the score so often. The app is able to tell your current Klout score. When someone gives you a +K or your score changes, you be notified too.

The main screen gives you the main information: who you influence, who ate influencing you, and the 3 influential topics you are in. Looking forward to more features on the app!

Tweet me when you +K me

This is a continuation of my post on Klout, a reader said that sending a tweet to me is easier which I agree. So here’s the deal, if you +K on my profile, Klout will prompt you to share it via Facebook or Twitter. Click on Twitter, and Klout will give you the template to tweet. I check my Twitter account daily, so once I see the mention @imstash, I will response back with a +K 🙂 I don’t think this is any manipulation, since this is all about networking … we can’t possibly sit on the bench and wait for things to happen.

The Rise of Pinterest and why you should Market on it

Pinterest popularity and growth is growing so fast that it had taken many critics by surprise. Some complained that the traffic from Pinterest were useless, and pointed out that women took up 80% of the user-base. However many were silenced when the Pinterest took the 3rd position for popular social networking sites.

Holding the top 2 positions are Facebook and Twitter. Facebook is unshakeable with 7 billion visitors, Twitter 182million, and Pinterest at 104million.

With that huge amount of visitors, companies are re-evaluating the effectiveness of building their brand and profile on Pinterest. The social photo-sharing network represents a big opportunity. Not positioning or marketing the company infront of 104million users can be fatal mistake, especially when your competitors are doing it already. For more facts & figures, plus 15 Pinterest strategies you can implement for your marketing, read the post here.
