(First off, I have a confession to make. I offered the discussion document and fueled the conversation on the Boxes and Arrows LinkedIN Group. Here’s the post Pinterest and the Power of Social Bookmarking: Tag Yourself (Web Design is Dead). I did not originally suggest this simple fix. BUT, I cannot tell you who did, because the thread has been taken down. Odd? I will credit the participant when I know her. I have put up a request for info on the group.)
We all have a vested interest in Pinterest getting their UI or UX right. All of us are going to spend more time on Pinterest than we care to admit, even business people, and it would help if the Pinterest experience were a little better planned. I offer this solution to one problem in hopes that Pinterest will improve. If you know any influencers there, share this with them, they can have the idea for free. (grin)
Onward to the fix.
